I recently moved to the Austin area from Michigan and have started my search to find a lumber supplier for my woodworking projects. I really miss my supplier back in Michigan Raven Farms LLC. They were a local mill that sold air dried lumber at very reasonable prices. Does anyone know of similar sawyers or mills in the Austin or surrounding area?

Look here for sawmills or suppliers close to you. Seems to find a good bit of sellers in your area.

Not too familiar with the Austin area but there is M&G Sawmill in Huntsville and they have decent prices from what I have seen and heard. Might be quite a drive for you though.

I was in Austin several years ago and I went to three or four nice lumber yards to buy mesquite to take back to Florida. I’ll search my records and try to find their names. There are plenty of good lumber suppliers in your area.

I personally do business with Fine Lumber of Austin but I’ve heard good things about Dakota. The reason I like Fine Lumber is they have weekend hours.

The only issue with Fine Lumber is their price. They tend to be higher than a lot of other options. That said, they do tend to have quite the selection.

What type of wood are you looking for? I know of a local mill in Llano that sells a lot of mesquite, but has other wood too (though not nearly as often as mesquite).

Have your say...
