I’m just getting into this hobby and I’m disappointed in the lack of places to go for anything other than building materials. I’ve searched this site, but related posts mention old locations that are now closed. I have a Rockler and Woodcraft in town, but their selection is small and seems expensive.

If anyone knows of a mill, lumber yard, or any people that I can get material from I would appreciate your recommendations.

Are you in Cincinnati?

Is this place too far away?

EDIT: Also, check this thread:

I’d go to Frank Miller Lumber in Union City IN. They specialize in quarter sawn woods, but have flat sawn as well in all domestic hardwoods. They are have a small selection of exotics, ad a very good selections of hardwood plywood, along with “real” baltic Birch. It’s a 70 mile drive for me (NW OH), and still my first visit when I need hardwood.

Thanks for the recommendations. I was hoping for something closer, but it’s looking like an hour drive no matter what. Just thought a decent-size city like Cincinnati could have enough business to support a more local place.

What about ? Their website seems to indicate that they do sell in small quantities.

Have your say...
