Recommendations for wood and woodworking supplies in Boston area?

I am starting to "graduate" from the Home Depot and Sears level of supply for my DIY and wordworking projects.
Any suggestions for good places to buy wood, woodworking tools, and associated hardware in the Boston area? (preferably in the near Western suburbs)
Thanks

Check the back of Fine Woodworking Magazine. There are several major places that advertise regularily that can't be more than a Mass Pike exit or two from you.

For wood look in the Yellow Pages under Lumber- Hardwood.

If you need some exotic plywoods a great place in Somerville is http://www.boulterplywood.com /.
There is a very good lumberyard in Ashland too if you are anywhere near there (Ashland Lumber). They will even deliver for free if you are close which is great if you need to buy 4 x 8 sheets and don't have a truck.

Looks like you've already gotten answers about wood. For woodworking tools, you can try the mail order or web order places like Lee Valley tools (they have a nice catalog, too). Highland tool The Japan Woodworker Garrett Wade Lie-Nielsen Woodcraft -- There's one at 313 Montvale Ave., Woburn, MA 01801 781- 935-6414 Rockler -- there are two in your area: Danvers - 29 Andover St., Danvers, MA 01923 and Cambridge - 2154 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140 Woodhaven
