I’m stuck, and I’m in need of some help from the Lumberjocks. I found out about a month ago that the wood supplier that I was using went out of business, and I’m having a hard time finding a replacement other then HD or Lowes. I’m just outside Harper’s Ferry, WV. If any of you know of a shop either in MD, VA, WV or even PA, that would be awesome!! My “wish list” of projects is getting backed up.

Go to and enter your zip code and do a search. It’ll turn up some names in you area.

Thanks for all the info! I was using McDaniel Hardwoods. I stopped by there about a month ago and the shop was closed. I then heard from a couple friends that they had closed up shop.

Hardwords Inc is just off of N. Market St (355 I think) near old town Fredrick, MD. I got a few things there a while back and the guys there were real helpful. If looking for something exotic, they maybe the place to look.

There’s a place with 2 locations in MD but not sure how close there are to you. There called Exotic Hardwoods. They also carry domestics too and seem to have some decent prices. Might be an option.

That’s to bad about McDaniel, I’ve been using Hardwoods INC for about the last 5 months so I had no idea about them closing. There is also a dealer up in Funkstown, MD near Hagerstown I forget the name though.

A big thanks to everyone for all the help! Brian, I’m going to swing by McDaniel tomorrow just to triple check. I’m hoping that I’m wrong and that they’re still open. They were awesome to work with, and took time out of their day for all of my newbie questions.

Let me know Jmack, I know McDaniel is not open on Weekends usually, so I was going to send my wife over one day in the near future to pick up a shopping list…

If you feel like traveling a little Hearnes Harwood is in Oxford PA.

I deal with Bailey’s Wood Products in Kempton, PA The are about 8 mi north of Exit 35 on I-78. It is a nice drive and the exit before that has the PA Cabelas Store, if that interests you.

Bailey’s is a family run business with a good selection of hardwoods. I have been there when customers from your area have shown up.

There are lots of places that you can buy via the internet or a phone call and they will ship the wood to you. Of course, shipping adds to the cost but often you can save enough on the purchase price to make the cost, including shipping, reasonable. My first choice is always Bell Forest Products ( They have great stuff, reasonable prices, and they are great to deal with.
