I am looking for a dependable source of reasonably-priced dried red oak
(one or two hundred board feet per sale). The wood store in Martin City, MO
appears to have closed--they used to have some pretty good wood at VERY
reasonable prices. Paxton is excellent, but there is less costly oak out
there. The prices charged by the BORG stores is waaaaaay to high. Anyone
know of any sources of dry oak south of KC? A variety of different cuts
would be even better.
FWIW Missouri-Pacific Lumber Company in Fayette Missouri has large stocks of
hardwood. The used to have a minimum order of 250 bdft but I see they now
have a 1000 bdft/order statement on their site. Fayette is just east of
Columbia which is about 120 miles east of KC.
Liberty Hardwood Inc. at Truman road in KCMO. "4/4 Oak Red F1F W/T Tieside
rough" @ $2.15/BF. Size is approximately, 8" wide and 8" long. Remember to ask
for "Railroad Tie" red oak. They have other size too may cost more. FREE
delivery over $300, they may make delivery under $300. They will plane them too,
but I forgot how much they charge.
They have wide selection of plywood and other hardwoods. They also sell
compatible Accuride ball bearing drawer slides at ridiculous low price.
I believe they are the cheapest in KC. Ask for David (1-888-908-0852), (if
anyone know any cheaper, please let me know I'll change my supplier!)
I have no relation to Liberty, but I am a very satisfied customer.
Thanks! I will give Liberty Hardwood and Schutte Lumber both a try.
BTW--there is allegedly a place in Butler, MO that has a variety of
hardwoods in random bundles with prices of approximately $1/board foot but
have not tried them assuming the bundles are quite large.
Thanks, where in Butler (more precise location)?
Occasionally when I drive into small towns outside KC Metro, I always stops in
small town and communities looking for good cheap stuff. If you are looking for
new/used recondition, including returned Crapsman tools, there is a place beside
a gas station off South I35 in Ottawa.
Dunno about the Butler location in more detail (sorry)--I made a note last
year that athey $50 bundles of oak, cedar, ash and walnut but failed to get
directions or phone number. As small as Butler is, I would imagine that it
would be common knowledge at many retail stores.
BTW--found that Huttig Front Street (west of Interstate 435) has oak for $
2.05 but am unaware if it is 4S or what--will visit them this week or next
along with Schutte and Liberty. A professional woodworking friend gets
white oak from Huttig.
