Hi all. I’ve just moved to NW Arkansas and am looking for woodworking stores and lumber stores. Anybody got any leads?

I know it can be a hike – but there is an outstanding guild in Tulsa.

I would at least contact them, as they will have a good inside track on perhaps a 100 mile radius of that neck of the woods, for sawmills, specialty items etc.

That guild also brings in good speakers, like Michael Fortune, to do talks.

NW Arkansas? What a great place! I might be a bit bias as you can tell by my profile picture but there’s so much up there, even more since I left. However, last time I was back there for a bit I did some research on woodworking stores and lumber yards but didn’t have much luck. I even looked in Fort Smith (my hometown) and all I could find was big box stores and 84 lumber.

I figure there’s got to be at least some sawmills and hopefully a good lumber store around there somewhere. You might want to look in the Eureka Springs area as well. Doug Stowe, the famous box maker, works out of there. You might even consider trying to contact him and see if he has any suggestions. Besides, the drive from Fayetteville to Eureka Springs sure is pretty, especially in the fall.

Good luck! If you do find anything let me know, we usually try to head that way at least once a year. Woo Pig Sooie!

Jeff, I’m in Jenks (Tulsa) and have a sawmill. I really like to saw unusual woods (mimosa, blackjack, etc). Come visit any time.

That’s a great area.
Sure has a lot of Tyson folks there.
