Topic tags/keywords: question myrtlewood

I need some Myrtle Wood and I am trying to get it directly from Oregon. I am building a Flag Case for a gentleman that wants it for their fathers Casket Flag. I am looking for a supplier that is near or in Myrtle Point. This is where the family is from. His father was a WWII vet and I am trying to make this a special build. I guess I could get it from anywhere in Oregon if need be. I just can’t find anything Googling, not very good at it anyways.

I suggest sending an private message to a1Jim. I am sure he would have some suggestions.

Also, Cook Woods is an Oregon based exotic lumber seller.

The Pm I sent could help. I gave a fair amount to David (patron) when he was visiting maybe he would sell it to you.
He’s in NM also.

Thanks gents, I appreciate all the help. This flag box has to be perfect. His father was in the same unit I was in only a few wars apart.
