Greetings all,

I just joined up and have to say I am IMPRESSED with what I”ve seen here so far. I hope that someone here can help me out in my search for thin-stock exotic woods in central Georgia. I know I can order it from a number of places, but since I’m a hands on kind of person and VERY picky about the materials that go into my projects, I’d like to find a supplier that’s local (within 50 miles of the Macon area)

I have only lived in this area a short time and still don’t know where everything is or what actually in this area. Web searches and digging through the phone books has not yielded much information. Any information would be a great help!!!

Hey Jeff
I’m way up north ( a Yankee I guess) any how the only place I wood suggest is on line on e bay. They have good photos of what there selling and I’ve had good luck there, even though I like to see what I’m buying in person also.

That’s an idea to consider Jim. THanks for the heads up. I never would have thought of looking on E-bay.

You’re NOT a Yankee. You’re a left coaster like I used to be. I was just at the other end of that coast is all. ;)
