Does anyone know of a decent wood source for hardwood in San Diego? I don’t have a planer or jointer (yet) so I would need stuff that is not rough sawn. Im looking for something cheaper than the big-boxes but I also don’t need large quantities as my projects are usually fairly small…

Any help would be appreciated.

Recently, like just yesterday, a fellow LJ was trying to determine wood prices from across the US. Someone posted a San Diego wood vendor website that had a hugh selection of rough cut hardwoods. They will joint and plane for a fee. Now I can’t find the post and responses. I have the price list in .pdf format but I’m having a hard time uploading the .pdf file. Maybe someone here can post it.
