Yup. They ship free so unless you really want to pick out your own stuff, getting it online is easy

Excellent. I checked out their website and it looks like a great selection. Thanks a lot for the tip.

+1 on Downes and Reader for hardwood and better-than-BORG sheet goods too

Several years late to this thread, but if anyone still needs the information, Downes and Reader sold to a company called Rugby ABP (architectural building products)-their website is:
Still the only game in town re: exotics at a price that won’t kill you, though it should be noted that what they sell is rough-everything is sold per board foot (most with minimums, unless they have a leftover piece), and will need planing, but they have everything from purpleheart to wenge to bloodwood, etc..I’d choose that place over a trip to the mall ANY day!

Have your say...
