Hardwood lumber source near Glendale California??


Besides Rockler in Pasadena, are there any good sources (better?) for hardwood around Glendale/Burbank? Kind of spoiled coming from Portland and I am looking for some good sources besides the internet.
Thanks in advance.

House of Hardwoods near Sepulveda & Olympic Blvds in West Los Angeles. 310 479-4196. Good for small quantities. Very extensive varieties available. A cheaper source for larger quantities is in East Los Angeles. Can't get the phone number until tomorrow from a friend. I'll respond again on Saturday.

I used to live in Glendale, and there was a place in Burbank that sold hardwood wholesale. Don't remember the name, but if you called ahead with your order, and gave them some time, they would sell retail for a very good price. Can't guarantee this is the place, but found this site on the web.

Now I live in Chicago and have shoveled snow about 5 times in the past week. Parts of me miss LA.

Michael,
Bonhoff was the place I was thinking of when I wrote that I would call my friend. Their operation is large scale, but they offer really low prices.

Thanks to everyone, this should help out a lot. L.A. is unlike anywhere else--it's so big, has so much going on, yet is near impossible to find what you need.
Thanks again,
Michael

Major source for wood -- Anderson Plywood in Culver City, just off the 405 Fwy. Four times each year they host the Old Galoot Used Tool Swap Meets. They'll give you the shedule. Premier used tools at about 40% the cost of eBay.
Want a Stanley No. 2 plane? A guy shows up every time with about 5 of these. Great stuff.

Great place cant imagine a plywood selection they don't have. I hope they keep expanding hardwood offerings/quality. Notice they replaced their Altendorf slider with a 12" general recently

Swanner (listed earlier in this thread) will sell small amounts, mostly domestic though. Arroyo has domestic and exotics, prices seem a bit high (higher than Swanner). House of Hardwoods is pretty good, if you happen to be over in that area. They also have a wide belt sander, if you need a table top smoothed up. I know what you mean about LA, been here all my life and STILL can't find things. Yahoo yellow pages seems to help a lot, will find businesses sorted by distance from your address.

Hello Michael;
Two of my regular sources that the other guys didn't mention:
Far West Plywood in Northridge-They have a good stock of hardwoods at reasonable prices. You can walk in and pick your own boards.
Phillips Plywood in Sun Valley- A good stock of common hardwoods at quite low prices; a few exotics
Both Far West and Phillips are good for woods like maple, mahogany, ash, alder, oak, etc.
I buy some of my exotic hardwoods at Arroyo Hardwoods in Pasadena. They're expensive, but they have a wide selection.

I too go there but only if I need a small amount, there are twice (+) the price of Bohnoff or Lane Vance Stanton. I view it as a penalty for not buying right the first time.

Thanks again. I managed to get by Arroyo on Saturday to get the one last piece of figured maple I needed. They did seem a little high on some things, but not crazy. A lot of furniture sized boards and not too much in the way of unique figured woods, but they were close and open.
I am now compliling a list, and thanks again for the help.
