I’m wanting to make a few end grain cutting boards as gifts for family. Trouble is I don’t know where I can buy nice wood. There used to be a lumber store in Memphis that carried exotic woods, but it shut down a couple years ago when the economy bellied up. Anyone know where to get fine woods in my area? (I actually live near Tupelo).
Thanks!
Dan

You can also get it from Sunset Hardwoods if you’re ever close to the Little Rock area. They may ship also but I’m not sure. They’re great people over there.

Jim, do you have an address for Exotic Woods of the World? They don’t have one on their webpage…
