I was planning on trying to build a cutting board, but i dont know where i can just buy lumber such as purple heart. By the way im following the directions given on a youtube video that most of you have probably seen.

I live in NC, up in the mountains, so if anyone knows of a spot up here to buy or order specialty lumber i would be very thankful.

Is there a good site to order lumber from online? what type of store would sell or order specialty lumber.

Thanks,

Erik

What part of the mtns? I only know of one place, but not sure if they have such things as purple heart. Anyway, it’s called Wood Warehouse, Franklin, NC. 828-369-3913. Most everything else in the Franklin, Sylva, Asheville area is pine, oak, maybe a little cherry. Wish I could help more.

Beginning in mid-August you will be able to get a variety of wood at Asheville Hardware. www.ashevillehardware.com

I live in semora NC and I drive about an hour west to the Hardwood store of North Carolina, it’s worth the drive to me because it’s all country roads to get there and the quaint little town it is in is nice too. They have a good selection of hardwoods and a knowledgable and helpful staff, I actually got a great piece of 8/4 purple heart with a bee’s wing pattern in it that I used for a desk, though you won’t always find something like that, you will find quality wood and friendly people, check out www.hardwoodstore.com

What mountains? That is a broad area. I get mine from Steve Wall lumber, in Madison. North central NC.

Eric,
If you just need a short length of purpleheart (10-14”) and want to pay the postage (it’s heavy), I will send you a piece of 5/4 (6-8” wide) for no charge other than the shipping cost.

I brought a horse trailer load back from Portland in 1999 (half of it was purpleheart), and I have a piece or two to spare…

Worked real well for me, a lady bought two of our horses, paid me to haul them to Portland and show them, put us up at a hotel, and I brought back hardwoods (I opened a commercial account there), sold some of them for my fuel so the whole trip was practically free…
