I just moved from Michigan, to South Carolina. Can anyone tell me where to
find a good tool supplier, and a good wood supplier? I'm looking to buy a
dust collection system, something like the Jet DC-1200CK. Would like a
local supplier. (Tried to locate one through Jet, but their database was
down!) For wood, I would like a place that sells rough sawn lumber at
reasonable prices. Again, a local supplier. Mostly birch, and cherry.
Thanks for any information you can give me!
Woodcraft has a store west of downtown, on HWY 17, left side of the road as
you drive away from downtown.
St. Andrews Shopping Center
975 Savannah Highway
Charleston, SC 29407
Bring the wife as there is a Tuesday Morning store next door.
If, after spending lots of $$$ on new toys, you need a _good_ place to treat
Mama to a taste of local seafood, try Locklear's Low Country Grill. (about
3.5 miles from Woodcraft)
South on HWY 171 Folly Road towards Folly Beach, on the southeast corner of
Folly RD & Harbor View Rd in a Bi Lo Foods plaza. Great food served by
folks who know how to do it right.

I buy wood from the Charleston Hardwood Center. They seem to have good
prices(better than anything else I have found). I think they normally sell
to contractors because they look at you a little funny when you walk in, but
they let you go to the warehouse and pick out what you want. They are down
by the Coliseum off of Montague Ave. I won't even try to give directions,
here is their address, 4325 Lear Ave. N. Charleston, SC 28419, punch it up
in mapquest. I have lived here for about 5 years total and had no clue how
to get there when someone tried to explain it to me. As far as tools go, I
also use the Woodcraft someone else already posted.
There's also custom Woodcrafters in Summerville, 871-8815. He's on Hwy 178
a few blocks past 17A. Call before going there, he's been in the process
of moving to a new site on Dorchester Road for a while. If you're
interested in carving the Woodcraft Store hosts Lowcountry Woodcarvers the
2nd Wednesday of the month, if a turner the Lowcountry Turners meet there
on the 2nd or 3rd thursday.
