Re: It ain't like it used to be - wood

If you're willing to buy in quantity there is lots of good wood available still. It's just wholesale sellers that don't want to deal with a board or two, or twenty. Easy enough to find if you want 100 bd.ft. or more. The hardwood retail dealers usually don't have enough demand to stock that quantity so it's hard to find. It's economics not supply that's the problem.
