Topic tags/keywords: hardwood dealers suppliers chicago suburbs

Saw a post about places to buy lumber in and around Chicago. Listing a few I know of…please add to the list

Owl Lumber in DesPlaines – locations in Lombard and Oak Lawn as well.

Hardwood Connection in Sycamore on Route 64 (North avenue) – nice ride out but Sycamore is a decent little town to stretch the legs and get a bite.

Kirkland Saw Mill – roughly 10 minutes further northwest from Sycamore

Bull Valley Lumber in Woodstock – very helpful staff, family run. A lot of locally sourced woods. Good selection of supplies. They offer classes and demonstrations as well, some of which are held at their lumber processing facility in the area.

Woodcraft Buffalo Grove and Woodridge – per the staff in BG, the owner of these franchises has 7 midwest stores. They say he just bought a lumber mill in Michigan and plans to expand the wood selection in each store. They said to watch the store websites, emails, etc for an announcement and deals.

Rockler Schaumburg – small supply, a little more expensive

Old School Timber Works Company – Jeff Clark – 847-977-3767 – Libertyville area with a location in Waukegan. Says he has locally sourced slabs.

Great Spirits Hardwood in Dundee – table maker who also sells some hardwoods…smaller supply

[email protected] – Lawyer woodworker in Fox Lake area with a small sawmill

Badger Hardwoods in Walworth Wi

Horrigan Urban Forest Products in Skokie

Wood World, 2460 W George St (damen and elston)—tend to be expensive, but they have stuff, and it’s good quality.

There is also a Rocklerr in Bolingbrook, and possibly Orland Park. A little downstate, there is Pekin Hardwood Lumber near Pekin. A local sawmill and store.
