Where to buy hardwood (IPE)?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Planning on doing a deck project soon. Somebody told me that there is a lumber shop near the Heights that has decent prices on hardwood such as IPE with really short delivery times. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the shop, nor can't I find it on the internet. Where do you guys get your hardwood from?

Thanks.....

Clark's Hardwood has it in stock and has pretty good prices if you buy enough.

There used to be a well-stocked hardwood place just south of White Oak between Heights and Studewood, but it's been a few years since I was there the last time.

I went in to Clark's this week. Great operation, but if you don't really know what you want going in, I can see how annoying I must have been to ask for pricing on half a dozen species. 

 

Also, while i did some research beforehand and was expecting to get a Board-Foot price, that wasn't the case. Instead, they offer a L.F. cost for different size pieces. Once doing the math back home.. I guess that makes sense.. the wider the board, the costlier.

 

I'm new to woodworking and am trying to soak up the knowledge neccessary to build my dining room table.

If there are any Haify woodworkers that can share information such as relative pricing of hardwood, and suitability for table tops, it would be much appreciated.

Mahogany is probably the most stable of the regular woods out there. 

 

Watch out for dust irritation and toxicity. Cut outside if possible or get good dust control. Tropical wood in particular has some nasty all-natural toxins. 

 

Norm Abram built a bunch of tables in his run on New Yankee Workshop. Utubes got some of them. Good place to learn. Note that he has very nice expensive equipment.
