If you order exotic or domestic wood online, which sites do you go to? Who has the best deals?

I use the same guys and either you can turn it green or let it dry. I have made alot of stuff from them.

Try Diamond Tropical Hardwoods at for some wonderful cocobolo (rosewood), teak, yellowheart and several other nice exotic woods. If you are anywhere close to Sellersville, PA where they are located it is well worth a trip there to see the amazing amount of inventory they have. They are also great to deal with and very helpful.

—Eclectic offerings, not terribly expensive
—Great variety with many sales, many ‘clearance’ opportunities
—Cool place for Australian exotics, can be pricey but can also find reasonable deals
—Some neat pieces, expensive
—Go here for Cocobolo…one of my favorites for turning

Buying wood makes turning expensive. Most of the bowls or hollow forms I make are from long I get for free. I therefore turn things available in my area, but that includes a wide variety and sometimes I get burls or interesting pieces of wood
Good turning
