Topic tags/keywords: question beech maple hand planes supplier

I am looking for a supplier of beech logs/quarter sawn beech in the southern Ontario area. I want to use them to make hand planes. If anyone knows of a supplier or could point me in the right direction that would be helpful. If I cannot get beech I would be fine with hard maple.

Hi CW,

Hmmm…you say you’re fine with hard maple, and you live in Canada? Yes, I would be too, and I’ve seen your national flag, so what am I missing here?

Have a nice day!
Antti

Haha, yes there are lots of maples in Canada, though it is harder to find hard maple in my area than the more common soft maples. I only want to use hard maple though if I cannot find beech, which is not that easy to find.

I have access to some quater sawn beech, kiln dried for planes. 8/4 and thicker. Not sure what shipping to Canada would cost though. The wood is 7$ board foot. Very nice stock. bob
