I just found a new place in Bucks County PA.
It is called Specialty Woods and is located in Ottsville PA (About 10 min
north of Doylestown).
Their address is 8244 RT 611
Ottsville PA 18942
610 847-6884 Fax
I talked to the manager Mark Mattozzi, he carries a large assortment of
hardwoods and specialty woods. It is all rough sawn but the stuff looks
He also carries some hardwood ply as well.
I hope this store makes it as I am tired of going to Trenton or Allentown
Do you know any prices off hand? I live in South Jersey and I'm tired of
going from Lancaster to Harrisburg for my lumber. The stuff I get is mixed
grades, 80% or better useable but I only pay $1.25 to $1.50 bf for cherry or
red oak. Getting all FAS with a shorter drive is worth a premium but not if
I have to pay the $8+ places around here charge.
It seems when you get past Lancaster there are lots of people with portable
saw mills. I have family in Harrisburg so I usually make a weekend road trip
out of it. I keep an eye on the local classifieds. The stuff I find is
listed under building materials. There's lots of cherry and red oak and
every so often black walnut and poplar. I have never seen maple though and
I've been looking regularly.
The best wood source I know in the Lehigh Valley is:
Bailey Wood Products, Inc.
441 Mountain Road
Kempton, PA 19529
It's about a half hour NW of Allentown.
No connection, etc, just a happy customer.
