Okey dokey
I have a daughter that lives in Murrietta (spelling) and since i’ve heard of so much figured wood coming out of the area, i would like to know of a few places she could pick up some box elder and what ever locals suggest which she could ship to me here in Az. I do want some bootiful stuff to turn on lathe,

so any ideas or locations would be great.
She is a transplant from Newport Beach, ca. lol and she is going thru culture shock, lol. anyhows,

any info, that i might pass along to her so she might on a saturday grab up a few pieces and send’ tem my way

I know i could probably find some on the webs, but the personal touch for me is a good thing.
can’t get some of the figure i’ve seen on some projects from the area, just gotta try some.

thanks to all
Rj in Az

I did a quick craigslist search and found nothing in the Marietta area.

maybe Ron Aylor in Lilburn, GA can help.

I live in Atlanta, closest place in Marietta I know of is Atlanta Hardwood.
Link is here: http://www.hardwoodweb.com/HWWIndex.html

Some lumber mills are around as you get outside the greater Atlanta area.

Thanks, John. As mention above I would suggest Peach State Lumber in Kennesaw, or my all time favorite, Suwanne Lumber in Suwanne. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any box elder, though. For quality turning blanks, I would suggest https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/ in Atlanta.

Contact Rick or Nick at The Woodyard. thewoodyard.com. They will ship to you.

If you need small quantities, I will also ship to you. There is a contact form on my website.

Im from Marietta, I think Peachstate is the one you have been hearing about, they have an unbelievable amount of exotic woods sold by board foot, they also have huge exotic turning blanks.

I have never seen exotic plywoods anywhere else, but they have alot of black walnut plywood.

Have your say...
