NOT SPAM Interested parties email me. Louisiana and surrounding areas.


    As a hobbiest in louisiana there are few wood dealears other than the BORG that sell to the hobbiest without whining and bellyaching. I have access to a millwork shop just outside of baton rouge. I am considering selling hardwoods/ softwoods. I have access to many exotis such as mahogony, spanish cedar and the like as well as a constant supply of the common oaks (red and white), cypress, hickory/pecan as well as many other common woods from the area. I am not attempting to cater to commercial interests but to hobbiests such as myself. This would be a part time venture for me and would operate on the weekends, hopefully at below BORG prices with enough profit to subsdise my hobby. IF SUFFICENT INTEREST i will consider mail order as well. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF ANY INTERST,

Not close to there, but wishing you good luck with your effort. I'd love to see if something like that could get started here in Tucson. I have been having a terrible time getting good cherry from my regular supplier. It's all sapwood and warped and wained. It would be great if a bunch of us could somehow get together and get a good deal on a shipment on good FAS cherry or other wood in a quantity sufficient to get a good freight rate.

Spellman Hardwood here in Phoenix seems to have a decent selection of cherry. My local Woodworker's Resource and Rockler, however, has what you describe. American Hardwoods usually has a good selection as well. I don't know if it's worth the drive up to check them out, though.

Thanks. Given what I'm finding down here, I may have to make the trip to Phoenix. We have a Woodworkers' Source down here also, but I've found them to be outrageously expensive for their wood prices. May have to check again though.

If you do come up you need to check out Timber Woodworking in Mesa. Lot's of used/consignment machines as well as new plus they have a lumber section (I've never been in it so don't know the quality or pricing)
There's a certain drool factor at this place! I'm glad it's not closer to me! :-)

Actually, I travel I-10 between TX and FL a couple of times a year. I would love to bring a trailer along and pick up some decently priced hardwood on the way back to TX.

For those who have responded so far, I am going to just mark up enough to pay for my wood and supplies, I don't intend to become Howard Hughes doing this its just a component to our hobbies. I am very selective as to the quality of the wood I am going to sell, its apparently there is enough interest to pursue. For those interested I will work with individuals to ship UPS/USPS etc to supply and unlike many I will charge only the actual costs of shipping. I am going to work on a web page so I will keep updates. Feel free to email me so I an begin to compile a customer list as well as a "wish" list.
Merry Christmas1

measure 3 times cut once and then fill with wood filler and stain darker.
