Topic tags/keywords: wood augusta supplies question

I know this has been asked in the past, but the other posts were a bit old so I thought things may have changed since then in Augusta…

Is there anywhere in Augusta (other than Home depot or Lowe’s) to buy furniture grade wood? I want to build a coffee table and neither of those places have any hardwood thicker than 1”. I’m not looking for anything fancy since this is my first project… But, is a 2×6 too much to ask for in Augusta?

I know there are some places around Atlanta or Columbia, SC, but driving over an hour for supplies is generally not an option for me. About every other week I have to be within 30 minutes of where I work because I am on call for emergencies.

I appreciate any info you have to offer. Thanks!

SaRoOl -

Guess what! I have a wood shop right here in Aiken,SC, just across the river from you, and I purchase almost all of my lumber from a small band mill operation in Vaucluse, SC (also just across the river from you). To date, I have purchased walnut, maple, cherry, poplar, hickory, pecan, red and white oak, cyprus, heart pine and a little sweet gum. This was all cut green and was air dried either in stock at the log yard or in my shop. Generally, I pick out a log to my liking then have it milled there at the log yard. I also have information the Denmark Lumber Co. in Denmark, S.C. carries some hardwood. If you are interested or want to compare notes let me know.

The Furniture Doctor will sell wood to you. They repair furniture and carry a small selection of various hardwoods. I haven’t been down there in about 8 years but they did have a good selection. While not very cheap, they do have well seasoned and clean wood. They are located on hwy 25 about a quarter mile from Bobby Jones Expressway going toward Waynesboro on the right hand side of the road. I live in Evans if you need anything contact me. I’ll be glad to help any way I can.

Thanks, everybody! I’ll certainly check those places out.

I was started to get a little discouraged after my shopping trip yesterday…

Also, check Craigslist. I have a small mill and sell rough cut hardwood lumber from my property. I am about the only place that you can get grade hardwood around here, but I am 3 hours away from you unless you want to make a road trip.

@WHDLT15 I have looked on craigslist a bit. Looks like somebody in Warner Robins is selling a Shopsmith. Maybe when I save up some dough I’ll see if it still available and stop by the mill if I’m in the area…

Craiglist rules. Sometimes. I scored about 150 board feet of cherry for $0.60 a BF. Took some hunting and phones calls, but its worth looking!

RogerM, I’m in Augusta and would REALLY like to check out the mill in Vaucluse. I’m having a heck of a time finding a hardwood source here also. I used to live near there and actually know where Vaucluse is! Could you possibly PM a phone number to me so I can check it out? Thank you

I am another one in the CSRA looking for wood, most 8/4 for guitar bodies
and 4/4 hard maple (curly and birdseye esp.) for guitar necks.
Anyone have any current leads to anything locally?
I can do the Columbia drive if anyone knows of a good supplier there….

Roger m. I just moved to the area and found this thread about hardwood sources. could you share some more info about the mill in Vaucluse, SC? This is an old thread so it may have closed but I can’t seem to find it.

There is also a lumberyard on Washington Road in Appling, just up from Pollard’s Corner. It’s called – no great surprise – Pollard Lumber. Not sure what they offer, but maybe worth a phone call or a stop-in.
