Greetings all,

I will soon be passing through the Seattle area on a road trip with an empty pick-up truck. Can anyone suggest a good source of hardwoods in the Seattle area so I can stock up on some of my favorites, and avoid shipping to Alaska. I am familiar with Crosscuts and have purchased form them in their Portland store several times in the past years, but would like to see some of the competition, especially some that might not be advertising on the internet???

Thanks for any assistance.

AKDave

I don’t know about Seattle but farther north in Everett is Martin hardwoods. Even further north in Bellingham is hardwoodstoget. I have only been up there once and they are online. I get most of mine from Martins because they are close to me.

Crosscut has the cheapest I’ve found in the Seattle area, to be honest. If I don’t buy from someone off of Craigslist, that’s where I go.

In Portland there is Gilmer wood company and Goby’s, Been to Gilmer’s and was a very happy customer! Well worth the stop. If you come through Alberta I can hook you up with some amazing old Birch.

“Hardwoods to Get” in Bellingham is also known as Targo Woods. They have a website. Good people to deal with, and an interesting shop.

Goby is way high on their price for figured maple, I have a far better supplier at better prices and way better figure. They seem to make their money on huge thick slabs.

Rob, those prices at Martin Lumber are absolutely nuts. No way I would pay that much. Crosscut is much cheaper.
