I’m finally about to start getting some projects going, but I hit a wall. I am looking for a local lumber mill near austin. Nothing against the big box stores but I want to be able to really look at the lumber with out being crowded by people while I sort looking.

Bill Stuewe in Georgetown is a local small mill. http://billstuewe.wix.com/billswoodshop#! Never been there myself but have wanted to make it over there.

I’ve had decent luck at Brazos Forest Products up here near Dallas. It’s a hardwood provider though, not technically a mill where they saw up your trees for you. I assume that you are just looking for a regular hardwood supplier.

Brazos in Austin has quite a bit of milling capability, including sourcing and selling live edge slabs.

tnwood I’m in south Austin, there’s a lumber mill not very far east in a small town called Red Rock, his name is Gene Hahn he is very reasonable as a matter of fact I just got through using him for some mesquite and he also has a kiln that he is drying for me as well. Here is his contact info, not to mention it’s a nice drive out there as well.

I think I misunderstood the question, Gene is strictly a mill not in lumber sales. If you are looking for some lumber to purchase then Dakota and or Brazos as others have mentioned. The only lumber yard that I know of up north would be fine lumber.

I recently relocated to the area and just used Fine lumber a few weeks ago. It wasn’t bad. Exotic selection is small, but good stock of domestics. I hope to make it to some of the other places before too long, but we’ll have to see what the wife says about that!
