I just retired and I am back into wood working again, I use to get hard wood in South Carolina from craigs list but lately I have not seen any good places. I would like to find saw mills or people selling wood that is not ridiculous in price. I would appreciate any help

Monty Queen,

I think MSquared is a saw mill guy near Simpsonville. Also Ashville Area NC has a ton of places, is a place I use from time to time.

There is a sawmill near Fayetteville. those guys are good to deal with. I’ve bought walnut, oak, poplar from them.

PM me and I’ll give you the address and phone numbers I have.

I’ve also bought lumber over on the Charleston area. Also Quartersawn Scott.

If you search for hardwood lumber there are several dealers around.

If you’re looking for deals, they aren’t easy to find. Over on NC woodworker forum I see lumber from time to time.

I have not seen any non-ridiculous prices since before the pandemic.

I can’t speak to your location, but I can make a general suggestion. Check out CL or any other local ad service and look for those selling urban lumber. Around here there are a few people/places that work with tree trimmers etc. that acquire trees that come put, cut and dry them then sell off the lumber.
Good luck.

You live where there are trees, so there is also a guy or 15 out there sawing, and selling. You just need to get into the local info stream to find those phone numbers.

Go online and look for a woodworking club, there you could get close to the sellers if the places mentioned don’t pan out.

You might try Wall Lumber:

I purchased from them online a few years back. Excellent experience. Very good prices.

You lost most of us when you put the “not ridiculous in price” qualifier on your request. That’s a judgement only you can make.

Agree with above. quick ship with quality goods and prices that are as good as I can find. Purchased white oak quarter sawn, walnut, cyprus and other items over the years. Always professional. Ask for their catalog, it has prices as well as woods available. Also thin stock bundles.

Don’t forget to check Facebook marketplace either.
I found a nice deal on 8/4 locally that someone advertised as slabs.
Some were slightly warped, not good for slab tabletops but fine if you cut them up and join them.
Guy gave me a deal on those pieces.
Look for someone that advertises as kiln dried. If there’s pictures, look to see if they have sealed the ends.
Maybe you already know this, but there’s a lot of yahoos out there that don’t know what they are doing.

Check the “materials” section of CL daily. There’s people that have to move or just want to get rid of hardwood there from time to time.

Monty Queen,

I am a fellow woodworker in Columbia. There are very few places to find good cabinet grade hardwood here. Mann Tools on Chris Drive near the Lexington County Hospital has a pretty nice selection, but their prices are a little high. I buy from them when I need small amounts and don’t feel like waiting for shipping. O’Neil Lindler, the owner of Lindler manufacturing Company (a millwork company on Platt Springs road) has offered to sell hardwood lumber to me, but I don’t think he does that an a large scale basis. He’s an interesting guy, so you might want to touch base with him. Here’s a link to his business: I’ve purchased hardwood lumber from Roy’s Wood Products ( in Lugoff. They are a custom cabinet and millwork Business. The Wurth Wood Group ( has locations near the BMW automobile plant in Greer, one near the Airport in Charlotte and one in Charleston. They carry a good selection of native hardwoods, a wide variety of sheet goods, and their prices are reasonable. I’ve purchased from them at their Greer and Charlotte locations. I have been disappointed in the selection at their Charleston location. If I have an important project, I order my hardwood lumber from reputable out-of-state dealers. My favorite is Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford PA. I have found the quality of their products to be excellent, and they are very helpful on the telephone. I have never been disappointed in anything I have ordered from them. I have also ordered from Steve Wall Lumber in North Carolina, Groff & Groff Hardwoods in Pennsylvania and others with good results. The Marketplace on Facebook often has advertisements for hardwood lumber, but I’ve never bought anything through that source. There are lots of hardwood dealers in North Carolina, but the only one I have experience with is The Hardwood Store in Gibsonville, between Greensboro and Winston-Salem (tps:// It’s a good source, but a little far away for me.
Hope this helps.

Having moved from OH to SC a couple years ago, CL seems all but dead, I peruse facebook marketplace most of the time now. I just scored a big red oak slab at 2×25x125 for $75 from a guy in Forest City, NC. Here’s a few:

Wagner Farms LLC in Easley
D & K Lumber in Woodruff
Wood Shed Inc. in Chester (my uncle bought from there frequently but I haven’t made it yet)
Clinton Hardwoods in Clinton
Ellison’s Saw Mill in Gray Court
Koon’s Sawmill in Laurens
Cooks Shavings in Gray Court

If you’re making smaller items, I get great s2s hardwoods from a local custom cabinet shop. It’s all offcuts and there is a good deal of waste, but the price can’t be beat. My last trip got me a pallet of black walnut and a pallet of white oak for $250 for the lot. I’ve been working those pallets for over a year now.
