I am new to woodworking and would love to know of a place in the central/Birmingham area that sells rough cut lumber. I am having a tough time finding anything close by. I did find the Hobby Hardwood which is north of Huntsville, but that is 2-3 hours away. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you’d find that Hobby Hardwood would be worth the drive. If you decide to take a look at what they offer, remember that the sales operation is only open on Saturday of each week.

I did find City Hardwoods today which just opened about 6 months ago. Spoke with John on the phone who was super friendly. Best thing is it’s only a few miles from my house! Will be dropping by soon to see their selection.

Just wanted to follow up on this post about City Hardwoods. John and David are super nice and always helpful. They have a great selection of hardwoods and good prices. Be sure to check them out if you are in the area.

It’s always worth searching for lumber on Craigslist to see if there are any sawmills in your area. I found three near me that way.
