Have you tried calling fellow LJ Eric Saperstein? Artisans of the Valley. He’s in south Jersey and, if he can’t help directly, he sure will know someone who can help.

Just go to google and ether search by city or zip codes with the keyword “sawmill” and you’ll find several local sawmills. Here’s one 20 miles South of Philly that has a great looking webpage:

I’m sure you’ll find someone near you that has high grade wood that’s cheaper than the plain hardwood at the big box stores.

Try Hatboro Lumber or a little far but Doylestown Lumber. On Rt 611 is Haycock Lumber Mill.

If I lived in Philly, I’d be making regular trips to Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford, PA
