Review of online lumber buy

I've been meaning to do this for some time now, but the road to Harbor Fright is paved with ...
I had occasion to order 100 bf of rift sawn oak from Hartzell Wood Stock (http://www.hartzellwoodstock.bigstep.com /) of Lime River, Iowa. I know, I had never heard of it either but their town is bigger than mine is. I corresponded with Jana via email and talked with Jim on the phone. Nice folks to do business with. Lumber ordered with a virtual handshake and delivered a bit late due to the trucking company's computer centered being flooded out in one of those pesky hurricanes.
The lumber was as advertised, 4/4 in varying widths from 4 to 8 inches and lengths to 10 feet. The quality is excellent. If you value price and service, here's a good place.
Put up a few pictures of Christmas gifts featuring the oak on abpw. Will start on a modular computer desk and soon as I get the design out of my head and on to paper.

Hi John,
I'm on their mailing list and have been meaning to order some lumber from them. Where are you located and how much was shipping to your area?
I always try to do business with the smaller, more personable mom & pop stores when I can, whatever the purchase. Sometimes they're just one mom or one pop running the store.

I live in a tiny mountain community in Southern California and the shipping here was about $2 per bf. Ugly but worth it. Your shipping will be much less assuming you don't live in boondockville too. Email them, Jana responds pretty quickly.     mahalo,     jo4hn
