I'm looking to do some inlay/intarsia type work and I'm looking for a source for some various hardwoods, maybe some exotic woods. I'm imagining small pieces of irregular shapes, maybe as small as one square inch and maybe up to 5 or 6 inches. I'm thinking of thickness in the 1/8" to 1" thick range, not veneer.
I have no problem paying something for it ... the reason I refer to it as scrap is because it's not useful for most applications. I will need to purchase at a reasonable price naturally ... but I don't expect anything for free.
I live in Oregon where there is a lot of wood, but almost everything done in mills here is soft woods, mostly fir and cedar.
Can anyone recommend a good source?
Thank you in advance!
