Wow! - wood

Thanks Paul!

A great source I didn't know about!

It would be great if we shared our sources. It would be nice to have a wood source list for builder's on this BB.

I'm asked all the time about wood sources around the country and world and we have the group here which could easily compile a list for our readers.

Perhaps Nick could make a side bar where we could add our sources.

I get western red cedar from Viking Lumber at their Belfast Maine location. They have the greatest quantity and selection I've come across. I've bought northern white cedar from Goodridge Lumber in Albany VT and I know Michael Vermouth used to buy from them also. I get hardwoods from Highland Hardwoods in Brentwood NH.

And I'm going to check out Dewey's Lumber and Cedar Mill in Liberty Maine for northern white cedar.
