I am right there with Mike. Downed and Reader has everything (even a scrap cut off bin for dumpster diving)

don’t forget craiglist. A recent post had someone selling some cherry recently. There are a couple of guys (local sawmill guys) toward worcester that sell rough lumber. They advertise through CL as well. I have drooled over some big pieces from Georgetown. (not cheap) but that lumber was milled. If you don’t want to travel far take a peak at boulter plywood in somerville. (My old stomping grounds).

lblack2×4, i’m in boston as well and just finished building my version of the woodwhisperer weekend wall shelf out of cherry. I know there is a place on the cape that sells hardwoods, but i got my lumber from Highland Hardwoods in NH. It’s about 1 hr 15 mins from boston and they have a huge selection of wood. I’m new to woodworking too and i’m 24. this was my 1st trip to a hardwood dealer and i couldnt have been happier with my experience. not sure if it’s too expensive (they have pdf’s with prices on their website) but it’s worth taking a look at.

At D&R, you should be able to get a current price list in the office. First time I went, I was there for about 2 hrs. 1/2hr piicking out 25 bf cherry and 1 1/2 hrs just looking around.
