What about Keim Lumber? Never been there but if I ever get to that corner of the state I’ll want to check it out.

Keim has a good selection of hardwoods, but you don’t get to hand pick or see any of it. They take your order and send it to the mill and someone in the mill selects the lumber to fill your order. Not ideal, but workable. Any others?

I buy all my rough cut material from Yoder Lumber.Quality material at a decent price. They are right around the corner from Keim.I have bought from Baird Bros but it has been 10 years or so, they were pretty pricey.

kra – I went to metro hardwoods in Cleveland today and they have anything and everything. Somewhat crude website but there is an article about them too. Huge inventory just waiting to be cut and dried.

I’m going to check them out again for future furniture projects.

As mentioned by others on here there is Keim, which U can hand pick some of the lumber inside the store, Yoder Lumber in Millersburg and also check out Hartville Hardware in Hartville Ohio.

Thanks for the replies. Metro looks very interesting and the links were very helpful.

Kurt, I get all of my rough lumber at Gross Lumber they are just south of Orrville good quality at a good price. they have their own saw mill and kilns on site and have always had what I needed in hard wood. I normally buy in 100 BF lots it’s my preference to do it that way so I’m not a pain in the ass to them . I also do not cherry pick through the boards
Their address in

Gross lumber 8848 Ely Road, Apple Creek, Ohio 44606 phone 330 683 2055

hope this helps you oh if you look them up on the web the site only talks about pallets nothing about hard wood sales.

Have your say...
