There is a hardwood supplier in Bohemia/Ronkonkoma on Fifth Ave north of Rt 454 – J&A Hardwoods. I’ve been there twice and talked on the phone to him once. All three times was a rather harrowing experience. He is a very difficult person to deal with. Never actually purchaced anything from him. He does have hardwoods, don’t know if he has any turning stock. He has one corner of the wharehouse with small bundles of different woods. You guys might have better luck with him than I. Riverhead Building Supply does carry some dressed hardwoods, at least at their Riverhead location, but they get top dollar and I doubt they have any turning stock. There is a guy who used to do custom milling in Yaphank on CR 21 south of route 25 on the west side . I think he is the first house south of East Bartlett. I know a few years back I sent someone there to get some oak logs milled and it seemed to work out for him. It might be worth it for you if you want turning stock to scout around the tree service guys and get some logs from them and air dry them for the future. Good luck in your search.
