  • Hardwood sources

    Where would be a good source for hardwood for home projects? Have any of you ordered hardwood over the internet? I found a site called and they sell 20 BF hobbyPAKS and I wonder if anybody has tried them yet and if so, what do you think of them? I live in the Chattanooga, TN area and haven't located any local retailers yet.
    My wonderful wife gave me a TS3650 for Christmas and I haven't had an opportunity to do anything with yet.
    Thanks in advance.

      you should try the large lumber yards in your city, I am sure that their is a large lumber company where you can buy and save alot of money. it will beat going to lowe's or homedepot. I go to the large lumber yards here in los angeles, like jones and penn forest products. I hope you find what you are looking for.

        DSurette, this website is probably the best for finding anything to do with woodworking, tools, wood, machines, gluing, painting and finishing, you name it, you will not be disappointed. It can be a little intimidating if your a rookie with woodworking. The forum is unbelievable, you can find any type of lumber you can think of and never heard of. Of course the galleries are great, been a member for 2 years, first thing I ordered through the web site was 3D software for building cabinets, then 3D software for Remodeling and building. Hope you'll get a lot of info there and anybody else who goes there.....
        Great Link for a Construction Owner/Tradesmen, and just say Garager sent you....

            I will second the Steve wall link. I have bought from them many times over the past 6 years and have always had great service, fair prices, and fantastic wood. If you have a specific project in mind you can talk to them about your needs. Most UPS bundles are shorter pieces of wood in the 3-5 ft lengths. I called when i was starting my porch swing and told them I needed all the birdseye maple in a UPS bundle to be highly figured and over 5 ft in length to get the 5 ft slats I needed. The bundle arrived with all pieces being 5'3"-5'6" lengths and great figure.No extra charge for the selected sizes either.
