I am in Holland, MI (near Grand Rapids, MI). Any suggestions for places to purchase hardwood?

LL Johnson’s lumber in Charlotte MI. They have special order pick up only in Grand Rapids. It is a great place to get hardwood and they have a Rockler outlet in Charlotte. They are having a wood expo on Sept. 6&7 where you can get special lumber pack deals.

I, too, live in the Grand Rapids area (used to work in Holland) – greetings. Woodcraft, 28th St., Kentwood, has a nice selection of skip-planed lumber at prices that are comparable to LL Johnson. Note that the lumber is provided by the store owners; that is, the prices and selection are not shown on the corporate website.

I am not sure exactly where in MI he is, but there is a fellow LJ’er, Rich Eberly, who sells some very nice lumber at great prices. I actually just picked up a couple of walnut slabs from him that he delivered when he was taking a trip out to MN. I can highly recommend him:

I too got wood from rich (yikes) when he made a run to Chicago. Great guy, great prices, great lumber.

You have a great place near you called Hickory and Oak Sawmilling in Decatur, MI. I have bought from him a number of times and it was a real pleasure.

Have your say...
