I could not figure which forum where this questions should go. I said "no" last weekend to an expedition over to Lee Valley Tools in Ottawa (someone wants me to pick out a birthday present)... because I have not had a chance to find places to buy wood nearby or in between. I'd like to optimize the driving experience.
I will probably take the 50 from Mirabel - go through Hawkesbury - then onto Ottawa.
Anybody know good places? Places that have cool wood. Places that have both cool wood and tools….
If you know any good place other than Langevin et Forest on the island of Montreal I would also love to hear it.
My car can carry a few 8 foot planks before it causes problems driving, but I can also hitch up a trailer if you tell me it's a good idea (based on your opinion of the places).
I figured I should update this one. I finally made it out to KJP Select Hardwoods last weekend. I was a little taken aback at the entrance (looked closed - just a warehouse in a block of warehouses) but they have some really nice wood inside and the people working there are very nice (family) and every customer in there was literally having a good time. Great experience.
When I can dig the trailer out of the snow… I will hitch it up and get a bigger amount of wood!
