Topic tags/keywords: maple oak

I’m looking to buy some sawn 4/4 lumber in soft maple and red oak in north central Wisconsin. Quantity is small lots. 100 to 200 board feet. I will be making wall cabinets and desk. Maple is for face frames and oak for desk.

If anyone knows where I can buy some please let me know.

Just check Craigslist for the Eau Claire and Minneapolis areas. There are a ton of good lumber dealers that post on those regularly from your neck of the woods. You should be able to find a sawyer fairly easy.

Also Google for local sawmills or ask around at your local lumber yard who does milling. I buy most of my wood from small local sawyers at a fraction of what the stores want. Patience, timing and Craigslist are your friends.

I’ve bought from Don's Lumber in Chetek. Don will sell in small quantities and deliver for a fee. Otherwise you can go visit his mill. His prices are also very good.
