Mason Mill & Lumber on Tanner (east of Beltway 8 and Gessner)
Hardwoods of Houston (on W34 a couple of blocks north of Hwy. 290)
Hardwood Products (on Westside of Beltway 8 just north of Bison)
There's always the big place on 5th or 5-1/2 off Studewood

Some of them offer 1/8" 1/4" and 3/8" stock?
Anyway thanks, all these years and I have never been to Mason.
Hardwood products does not have anything less than 4/4 unless that has
happened in the last few months, same goes for Clarks in the Heights, that
big place. ;~)
Not to my knowledge. I thought that's why joiners and thickness planers
I've just about quit Mason's and started taking my bidness to Hardwoods
of Houston on W 34th. I tend to use baltic birch for drawer material and
they do have 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 plus I believe they have 1/2 in 4X8 sheets but
I may misremember that.
Yeah but the OP was looking for a source for those thicknesses.
What kind of hardwood selection and or depth of inventory does Mason's have?
Occasionally Hardwood Products stocks 4x8 1/2" Baltic Like Birch, I suspect
it is actually Appleply. From what I understand "ture" Baltic Birch only
comes in 5x5 sheets.
Considerable, from rough blanks 8/4 and such to S4S 1X and 2X. They
also have an in-house molding operation and a catalog of knives plus stock
some standard profiles (crown, chair, cove and such) in a handful of
species. But then, I believe Hardwoods of Houston does that, too.

Hum - know anyone down at the ship channel ? Some cargo ships
use exotic (foreign) wood to block and brace with. Some big stuff
we used to get years ago overseas.
Just an idea.

Some decades ago a pal of mine who is a fanatical woodworker went to Africa
to teach for two years, Tanzania. When he was about to return he bought a
whole bunch of real interesting wood, and had it carefully made into
extra-heavy-duty shipping crates in which to return his household goods, and
by carefully I mean he plotted out every screw and nail hole. Of course
when he got back he dismantled the crates and stacked the wood on racks,
he's still building stuff out of it all these years later. I hate to think
what some of those slabs are worth today.
