Hey there fellow Lumber Jocks. So I moved to Nashville, TN from CA this past year and was wondering if anyone had any good lumber suppliers for exotic/non Lowes & Home Depot wood. I would like to find some places to buy larger pieces to do some fine furniture building. I have also thought about looking around for any generous wood shops that would be willing to let me dive through cut off bins too. I love to use cut off material for small projects to keep me busy between larger projects. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time,
Sfrenchfry

Hop in the truck and drive down I-24 to Chattanooga, about 2 hours. http://www.chattanoogahardwood.com/

Not sure what is on Nashville.

Craigslist Is a good start. There’s also an excellent supplier in Knoxville, but that’s a bit of a drive.
