usually rockler or woodcraft has some wood choices that might work if you only need a board or two

I’ve heard good things about Bell Forest Products. My friend buys small amounts of exotic woods on eBay. I’ll see if there are any sellers he recommends.

I ordered from when I first got back to woodworking. Had a good experience. Wood was what I was looking for. I find their website to be the most friendly, giving useful information about the woods they sell, and their ordering process is very easy. Their prices are not great compared to a local lumberyard, and shipping can be expensive, but they do have regular sales on one or two woods per month. Worth a look.

I like how bellforest sells rough and hit-and-miss boards. WWsource does not offer that.

Woodcraft is great for the small pieces. Their site is super easy to navigate as well

Shipping is, in Canada at least, an issue here. Small amounts are usually sent by courier and the shipping is expensive. I freight my wood and buy in bulk to avoid this.

If you can choke down their prices, NWTimber in Oregon has incredible pieces of figured walnut and maple that they will courier to you.

PS I like your dog pix. How do you keep a lab so trim ??
