Good supplier of furniture lumber in Portland OR?

Just starting out making furniture as a hobby and am looking for a good (cheap?) supplier in the Portland Oregon area? I have heard about lumber via mail order, but am not familiar with that and suspect the shipping could be murderous. Home Depot and Lowes have some wood, but to me are on the expensive side for selection they have.
Thanks - Clayton

Crosscut Hardwood - 3065 NW Front. Gilmer Wood - 2211 NW St. Helens. Both are excellent. IIRC, if you join The Guild of Oregon Woodworkers you can get a discount. Woodcrafters on NE 6th & Davis has a pretty good selection. Rockler in Beaverton and Woodcraft in Tigard have fair selections.

There's also Moxon Hardwoods down in Crosscut's and Gilmer's neighborhood; plus Hardwood Industries in Tualatin.

If you want less expensive wood (and excellent service), you might try Shurway Building in Vancouver on St. Johns Boulevard (just south of 78th Street). They have seconds and over-runs as well as scraps (like the top foot cut off of paneling) for good prices. I've gotten some good wood there as well as less expensive stuff for utility shelves, etc. You might find it worth your while to pay them a visit since they are just across the river, about 10 minutes from I-5 bridge. When you cross the bridge, stay in the right lane and take the Highway 500 exit, the next left is St. Johns. Follow that past the railroad tracks about half a mile; Shurway is on the left. The folks that work there are the "regular" lumber store folks who are very helpful and care about their customers.
They stock much more than "seconds" and have some great other wood also.
If you want specialty woods, WoodCrafters in Portland or Bergeron Lumber in Vancouver are two good sources.
While I'm here, I'll post a question about cutting boards in another post.
