Excellent responses folks. Thank you very much. On a related note, I
was in Plano, Texas on a business trip last week (in fact I'll be in
Plano till Dec 22), so I went up to Curly Woods in McKinney
(http://www.curlywoods.com /) and man-oh-man was I impressed. That's the
kind of business I now want .... but I hung around on for about 45
minutes chatting with the owner on Saturday morning (a time I'd expect
to be busy) and there was only 2 customers that actually purchased
anything. One paid $47, the other I'm not sure but I'd guess $150. At
that rate I don't see how he pays the rent!
BTW, this place really has much better wood and more species than the
places I shop in Colorado: Diverse Hardwoods in Longmont, Paxton's in
Denver, and Sears Trostel in Fort Collins. I think Curly Woods really
specializes in extremely high end quality woods - of course the prices

I too have been to Curley Woods once, on a Saturday morning. Again 2
customers and I was one of them in 45 minutes. I don't see how he keeps the
doors open either. He does have a web site so I suspect internet sales
If ever in Houston, look at Clarks/Hardwood Lumber. Probably 5 times more
variety and 50 times more quantity than Curley Woods. Really a cool place
that you could spend most of a day looking through the 3 large buildings.
