Does anyone know where I can find a decent selection of Rough Cut hardwood in the Northeast Louisiana area. i am looking for some WHite oak and Butternut. Butternut is the problem…I checked bell forest and they just don’t have a lot to choose from. i would prefer a lumber yard that i could drive to inside a 1 to 2 hour area from Monroe, LA. thanks for the help.

I know it’s a little bit further of a drive, but I think sunset hardwoods in Little Rock may carry butternut. I’m not positive but it might be worth looking them up and giving them a call. It’s definitely a closer drive than NOLA.

Cajunmarine I have acquired a random assortment of rough cut hardwood in the past couple years. There are a few folks around that sell some rough cut oak and a few others but it’s usually real green and takes a while to dry out. I’m sure there are several folks on here more qualified to respond than me. Do u have a particular species you are looking or a particular project u are wanting to build but can’t decide on the wood. Message me what ur looking for or what project ur building and I’ll take a look through my stash and see if I have some stuff to give ya.

I am not sure about butternut. I’m friends with a sawyer that I believe has a good bit of dry rough cut white oak.
