I was wondering where the jocks who live in the southeastern Pennsylvania region get their lumber. I live in Chester County, PA and currently drive out to Oxford, PA and use Hearne Hardwoods. There is a local Woodcraft in Downingtown but they are more expensive and don’t have large quanities. Any other places I am missing???

*EDIT what kind of stuff are you looking for? Hearnes has almost too much high end stuff for me.

I live in Chester County…Hearnes is OK (and only 14 miles away), but I really like Groff’s lumber out in south west Lancaster county. It’s less than an hour from Coatesville. They have big boards of whatever you’d want and a cool room of smaller pieces all individually priced and most finished on 3 sides. It was more comfortable there for me as a newbie to rough lumber. They will also joint and plane anything pretty cheap.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

I second Jason, Groff & Groff is a great place with helpful people. Don’t forget Craigslist (material section) though…
