Hi All,

I’m looking to purchase some 8/4 white oak or ash, can be rustic doesn’t have to be clear. Also 8/4 walnut, again can be rustic and can be shorts as well as long as they are over 5’ long (walnut, the oak i need 9’ or so)

i have stock piled some wood to build my bench and now i “accidentally” used it for another project, need to replace it now.

i normally buy from the local mill new me but they are low on these because some amish man bought there whole stock of dry walnut and ash. apparently he makes roll top desks and is planning to make about 100 or them haha.

please let me know if you have any or know a mill or private individual in the harrisburg pa that has this stocked and dry.

That is a lot of rolltops! Hope you can find some ash and walnut.

I don’t know how far is too far or exactly where you are but I generally end up at:

Hicksville Planing Mill
14464 Hicksville Road
Clear Spring, MD 21722
(301) 842-3474

I think ash and oak end up a little under $2/bdft for 4/4. I got some walnut for $5/bdft but 4/4 as well. I think the 8/4 walnut was a little under $7/bdft.

Have your say...
