I’m relatively new to the Montpelier VT area and would like to know where other Vermont LJ’s get their wood from. Looking mainly for for maple (figured), walnut, cherry, etc. Sometimes I grab some other stuff (exotics) but not too much.

Prefer rough cut, but sometimes I also buy surfaced.

Mostly for hobby/house projects, don’t need to buy a ton, but I like to stock up a few times per year for upcoming projects.

Any info appreciated.

I can’t really help, but am interested also. I’m in Colchester, 45minutes up I89N. There are plenty of adds on Craigslist all the time. Northend Hardwoods have locations in Williston and Lyndonville. I haven’t purchased from them, I just know they exist. Also Dust56 suggested Forest Products in Greenfield MA (413-772-6833), again, I haven’t purchased fom them. I really haven’t purchased from anyone, as I’m just getting my shop set up.

Welcome to Vermont. You say new to the Montelier, VT area, where did you hail from before?

Good luck on your search and saw dust mission!!!

DIYaholic: I posted the same question on another website and got a few responses. Here they are

Johnson Lumber Co. in Bristol
Paul LaRose in Barre
Architectural Woodworks in Barre
Northend hardwoods in Williston and Lyndonville
Fontaines in East Montpelier
Ed Letourneau in Marshfield often has air dried various native species.
P and R in Wolcott

I have used Northend. I have had very good experiences buying small quantities of rough, surfaced, and shorts domestic and exotics.

I moved to VT from Golden Colorado…I lived about three miles from the Coors brewing plant (if you’ve ever been there).

Thanks for the supplier info and input. It WILL come in handy.

I haven’t been to the Coors Brewery, but I have been to the Anheuser-Busch Breweries. Twice to the one at Busch Gardens in Orlando, FL and once to Williamburg, VA. I’ll need to get to Golden, in the name of fair play!!!
