Hello all

I am new to lumberjocks. I have been lurking around for about a year now and have finally signed up. I have only been working with wood for about a year now on my own, I built things with my father and grandfather growing up and I have decided to jump in head first!

I was wondering if there was anyone here from the las vegas area? I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction…. I’m wondering what places in town carry nice lumber, you know, not 2×4s and such but hard maple, walnut,ect…

Thanks for any help!

-- Tony

Hi Tony I don’t live in LV, but my sister and her husband do; they visit on occasion, and I send some wood home with them. I saw as a hobby, and have loads of black walnut and high figure/ burled “big leaf” maple air drying now. Slabs, lumber, and blocks. If you want some someday, let me know and I’ll get him some next time he comes around. E-mail me if you would like a pic or 3. Brian at, please put “wood” or the like in the subject line.
