When you speak of 2 x 4s, you generally mean construction lumber. No,
you won't find any with square corners. Most do carry other wood for
finish work but usually it is 1" boards.
Your best bet is to contact wood suppliers such as the link you
supplied and ask for wood cut to the size you want. You may also be
able to get them from a local saw mill, but they may be rough
Alternatively rough cut cedar construction lumber. The local HD is
stocking this for out door Pavilion, Pergolas, etc. Sorta like regular
cedar fence pickets.
BUT much more expensive than cutting down 2x6 material.
You could glue 1x boards together face to face to get any thickness you
need. Maybe glue up a couple of 1x6's and rip them to the desired 3-1/2"
width after the glue dries for nice straight edges. It would probably be
flatter and more stable than a 2x4 anyway.
Standard 1x4 lumber is available at any home center. Nothing exotic but you
should be able to find pine, poplar, oak, cedar, hemlock, etc.
This is kind of contradictory statement. When you say "2x4",
you're speaking of construction lumber. When you say "S4S"
you're speaking of cabinetry lumber.
In your non-answer to Mike, you implied you need the wood to
be very flat. Whether by that you mean you need it flat, or
you mean you need it smooth, or both, is unclear.
In any event, the answer to your question is no, there are
no national stores that stock what you need.
sharp edged corners or square faced
kiln dried will be square faced but square sharp corners is a
different kettle of fish
you might try contacting a sawmill directly but if you need just
a couple that would not be feasible
but sometimes they can oblige if you have the $$

's suggestion make even more sense as kiln dried wood is available everywhe
