Domestic lumber has it’s place and I’d like to get my hands on some walnut. I have seen a Craigslist adds for walnut slabs that require a bunch of driving for just one board. I may not be using the search arguments well. When I use “Wood” I get everything from motorcycles to pressed wood furniture. When I look for “Lumber” I get a bazillion spam adds for engineered flooring and construction pine, or reclaimed barn wood for $5.00 a foot. I do see a few adds for the types of sales I’d like to see more of but 90% seem to be cedar. After searching for an hour, I come away empty handed.

MaroonGoon, do you have any suggestions to improve the quality of search hits on craigslist?

As far as the more exotic species go, I’d still like a better source than the expensive Rockler or Woodcraft.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
