Had a chance to check out a new (to me) wood supplier in my area.
Peach State Lumber Products in Marietta, GA.
The staff was quite friendly and helpful, giving me an impromptu tour
of the facilities. They carry a wide variety of exotics, as well as
domestics, and the prices are in line or slightly better than other
"wholesale/retail" distributors that I have visited in this area.
They must do a pretty brisk business, because everyone was humping
while I was there.
Although they have a simple web site, it doesn't do justice to the
variety of woods actually available.
Most Standard Domestics including:
Cedar - Aromatic, Western Red, and Spanish
Hickory (Some looked like Pecan)
Maple - Hard, Soft, Ambrosia, Curly, and Birdseye.
Oak - Red and White
Pine - Ponderosa, White, Yellow
African Ebony $$
Black Palm (although I believe it was actually Singapore Red Palm)
Ipe (a ton of S4S decking/trim as well)
* General Observations:
The only real disappointments were the Cherry that is available, not
only here, but at other dealers as well. Having recently sliced up a
wild Cherry tree, I have become accustomed to the color and grain of
extended growth wood. The Cherry available for sale is pathetic in
comparison. American Black Walnut also seems to have increasing
quantities of sapwood left in as well as gnarly grain.
As always, no relation to, financial interest in, or connection to
this particular business.
