I live in Nebraska and am having trouble finding knotty alder. I don’t need much just enough to build a small vanity.

For such a simple project, why give yourself an impossible mountain to climb?

I may know where there’s some 4/4. How much do you need and I’ll go check to make sure it’s still there? Would be shipped from Georgia.

West of the Mississippi, Alder is fairly common as it grows mainly in the Pacific NW.
East of there, not so much.
