Hello All,
I live in Maryland and I’m trying to locate western red cedar STK dimensional lumber. Specifically, 2×6 & 2×12. Not having much luck finding a place that sells 2×12. Anyone out there know of a place that can accommodate me? Oh BTW, 8’ lengths are optimal.

Thanks for any advice.

Bob

Greetings.

Give the guys at Johnson Lumber a call. They have two locations near Annapolis. I was just over there the other day. They have a nice set-up, including a drive-thru “lumber yard” – easy to load up your vehicle.

Here’s their info – https://www.johnsonlumber.biz/products/

Thanks for the info Mark. That place is about 10 minutes away. Huge time saver.
Strange question but, we’re you ever a welder / iron worker?

Thanks
Bob

WRC is a known carcinogenic material. Treat the dust as HAZMAT. This may be a factor in its availability.

And it doesn’t stop there. We live with hundreds and hundreds of cardiogenic materials every day. Just take a look at this list.

It’s a wonder all of us don’t die at 25 from exposure to something or the other.

Thanks for the heads-up. I always wear a respirator when I cut. Plus I usually do all my cutting outside. I can’t stand a dusty shop. But I do appreciate the awareness.

Hey SVT Bob – no, never a welder. A now retired USG employee. Good luck getting your wood.

Cheers

Just checking Mark. Thought you may have been someone I used to work with. Your first name, last initial and area, matched and made me a little curious. Thanks for clearing that up.

Johnsons is great. Might also try American Cedar and Millwork in Millersville. One of them should be able to get it for you.
Good Luck.
