Hi all,

I have been wondering about a local source for exotic woods in or near Birmingham or Huntsville Alabama. I live in Cullman so I’m about half between the cities! I have found some good sources for local hardwoods, but would like some different woods than that. I know Woodcraft in Pelham has them, but if there is another source to see the different prices.

Hey all – now that is no longer “open to the public” as of Jan 2014, anyone have any other sources? I can’t believe a city the size of Birmingham, has wholesale only and outrageous prices on hardwoods and more so plywoods.
