For those Lumberjocks members that live in The Hampton Roads area, there is a small lumberyard in York County that I just discovered called Earth Resources that carries various hardwoods in the rough. It appears to be run by a sole proprietor and consists of a small warehouse that carries a small inventory. Red and white oak, alder, african and South American mahogany, walnut, cherry, ash, alder, hickory, sapele, soft and hard maple and more are available. Also available in variois thicknesses. The quality of the lumber is very good. And the prices are the best I have seen in the southwestern Virginia area. Like I said, he doesn’t carry a large inventory but he said if you need a lot of material, he can get it within 5 days. He does not take credit cards or debit cards. Cash only.

I just came back from my first visit and I have to tell you, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. For those of us in the Hampton Roads area, the only other sources of hardwoods is in Norfolk or Richmond, which, for me in Williamsburg are both 60 mile drives (not to mention tunnel traffic gong to Norfolk). So couple the convenience with the quality of inventory and the prices, this is a great option for wood workers.

The place is Off of US Route 17 in York County. Go down Dare Road off of 17 for 2 or 3 miles, take a left on Railway Road. Go about a mile or 2 and there is a small, paved private road on the left. There is also a small sign that marks the drive that can be seen from the road.

Correct. No website. Super nice gentleman who appears to not be bothered with technology! A lot to be said for that!

Have your say...
