Topic tags/keywords: resource question

I am a novice and have been getting my wood either from scraps at work or Home Depot/Lowe’s. I have seen Woodcrafters specialty supply. I am hoping there might be some seasoned LJ’s from my area that can advise.

If, you happen to get over to Walla Walla Wa, check out Jensen Hardwoods. He has some nice wood from the monster trees that grow there-Walnut, maples, oaks, ect. Lots of small pieces for good prices.
And….a friendly fellow.

There are two lumber dealers in the Boise are that I deal with: high desert hardwoods in Eagle and Intermountain forest Products in Meridian. Both are excellent.

High Desert Hardwoods in Eagle. Take checkbook or cash they don’t take credit cards. Reasonable priced for Idaho and have a large selection of hardwood both domestic and exotic. Reasonable price on baltic birch plywood also. Woodcraft has a fair selection but a little higher priced.

Intermountain forest Products in Meridian is much better.
