need tongue and groove cedar


I ordered some tongue and groove cedar over a month ago and the jobber cannot tell me anything about where it is and how long it will take to get here. They say it taqkes a long time to tool up to do this. If I had the time I could do it on my router table in a day. I would like to find another supplier. I need about 200 bdft of 3/4x8"x8' finished one side. I am finishing an addition to a Lindal cedar cabin. I am in the western North Carolina area. Any tips greatly appreciated.

I don't know what grade of lumber you are looking for, but we bought a few bundles of #3 T&G cedar to use on the ceilings of our house, from Barmon Lumber in Sultan, WA (Sorry, no web site or phone number handy). Being #3 lumber, we had to cut around a lot of knots, splits and broken tongues. I'd estimate 1/2 to 2/3 of each bundle resulted in waste, but at 1/4 the cost of locally available cedar we still came out ahead. We cut the scraps into firewood, and have been using them in our woodstove the past couple of years.
If you need a higher quality cedar, check with Bear Creek Lumber. They should be able to supply whatever you need, though they're a bit pricier.
