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.
