Looking for lumber, Wichita KS

I've finally gotten something of a shop set up and can start working wood. The only problem is I know of several home improvement stores locally but haven't run into a good lumber yard. So I'm asking for input on where I can get hardwood lumber from someone knowledgable.
thanks

I did. At 125 miles away, I'd kinda like not to have to drive that far. But thanks for the link.

Good luck. If you find any nearby, let me know.
About 5 years ago, I ordered a load of FAS 4/4 red and white oak and ash from Tompkinsville, Ky. At the time, even with freight, it was less expensive than anything I could find around here. Still using from that, so I've not been looking for any since.
DAGS and found this link: http://tinyurl.com/3d6nc9 most of which seem to be hardwood flooring contractors, but, from the names, some could be possible hardwood suppliers.

Why not try 181 miles east of Wichita to Kansas City. Liberty Hardwood have a wide selection of hardwoods lumbers, and cabinet's hardware. They are pretty cheap too.

Unless they deliver cheap, the cost of gas makes driving too expensive. Thanks anyway.

There are a few around but no one place is best for all species of hardwood. If you are looking for something specific drop me a note and I may be able to help. One place that in the past has had some good material is Papa's Wood shop their phone number is 265-6608. Earl Creel

Thanks. I'm not really looking for anything specific right at this moment, but shortly (couple of weeks) I've got a few projects to do. I just am not impressed with what is in the big box stores and really prefer to shop in local stores. Most of the stuff I'm intersted in is domestice hardwoods; maple, walnut, cherry, oak etc. I have some running to do tomorrow I'll check out Papa's and if there are any others you think I should check out feel free to mention them (I doubt they'd object to free ads :) )
Again thanks

Not any retail outlets I know of but Star Lumber will order from a local distributor there (I can't recall their name just now). You can pick up directly from them they're on the south side of town --
I've also bought some material through a small millwork shop -- oh, phoo! now their name eludes me, too. :( Down in the downtown industrial area just a little ways off Central as I recall...they don't stock a lot except for their own production but will order special for you for at least reasonable quantities (100 bd-ft I'd guess would be about as small as they would want to fool with).
Certainly any of the ordinary species are available that way -- last thing other than the barn siding the mill ran for me was some 5/4 soft maple. I need to get up there again and bring a stash of various home, though. I'm in far SW corner so it's a toss-up between Wichita and Amarillo (actually it's a little closer to Amarillo, but have family in Wichita so normally go that way for the side benefit).
HTH...I'll try to look up the millwork shop -- they're a good bunch to know, anyway as they are great folks to deal with...

Holtzen Woodwork 317 N Osage St, Wichita - (316) 262-7070
Timber Products, Inc, on S Custer is the other place I was trying to think of -- but as noted they're wholesale only so you'll have to go through Star Lumber or one of the other retail lumberyards.

Star Lumber Wichita B & B Lumber Wichita Fisher Lumber Garden Plain
All of these stock more common species but can order about anything. Star will likely have a bigger selection with the others close behind. I personally like the guys at Fisher and they and B&B seem to have a little better customer service.
If you need something a little out of the ordinary you might try Steve Lang's Hardwood Supply in Burrton. Burrton is about halfway between Newton and Hutchinson on highway 50. You might call first to be sure they sell retail (I believe they do) but we always order through our company or one of our builders. This is a top flight out-fit and a very good millwork too. They deliver to Wichita regularly but it's more fun to drive up there on an afternoon and poke around.

I live in Derby. There isn't anything real good in Wichita locally. Woodsworks west of Oxford has enough selection of 'normal' stuff. They're nice but far. They don't do special orders - I've asked about quater sawn oak.
White millworks in Belle Plain has limited selection - I've gotten oak and oak ply there before. They will special order. Best to call them first to see if they have it & their hours. It's a family business so they might not be their when you expect it or they might be when you don't expect it.
NOthing else - Star has stuff but expensive.
Brush & board was THE place but they've been out of business for a long time. hope this helps. I'm frustrated also.
