  • Looking for Local Wood Suppliers

    Where do Northern Virginia woodworkers get the wood for their projects? I finally got my shop set up and would like to get some material on hand for winter furniture projects. Any suppliers in the area that cater to woodworkers?

    I'd first check the yellow pages for saw mills, lumber, etc. If that doesn't lead somewhere (and my local YP doesn't), I'd then do some asking around, like with local cabinet makers, finish carpenters, etc.

    In my case, the fellow who was putting in my new hardwood floors knew of a couple of lumber mills within 40 miles or so.

    I hope this helps,

      When checking out the Yellow Pages also look under Millwork retailers and wholesalers.
      I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

            Zeeker, Try Hicksville Planing Mill Just West of Hagerstown Md. People come from as far as NJ and NC It is run by a group of Mennonites, so you need to be respectful, no foul language. They will move 5 hacs of lumber for you to get the one board that you need. Pricing will vary, if you restack your lumber nicely when picking through, you will pay less than someone who just throws it back in a stack.
            They have a phone, but it often goes unanswered.
            Sat hours are 7:00 til noon.

            Take route 70 west to just past I-81.

            Take route 63 north (I don't know the exit number).

            At the second light, make a left onto Route 40 (at the Sheetz, good place to get a sandwich on the way back).

            In about five miles make a right onto Route 57. There is a graveyard on the right as you come up the hill to a flashing light. There is the Sunshine Handi Mart on the corner.

            Go a couple miles and make the second right onto Hicksville Road.

            The planing mill is about a mile on the left.

            Hicksville Planing Mill
            14464 Hicksville Road, Clear Spring, MD 21722
            (301) 842-3474 John Miller
