Help looking for a wood source in Oregon.
« on: June 09, 2020, 11:42 PM »
Greeting all, I’m looking for a hardwood/ cabinet plywood source in Oregon.
I’m living in Douglas county. I would appreciate any help and leads.
Thank you much.

Hardwood Industries.   I'm in Bend, OR and I use their yard here in town.  They have another retail yard in Medford, but I have not been there.

Just hoping to fine somewhere in maybe Eugene.
Maybe a road trip to Bend of wood and lunch.

Goby is in Portland. Worth a road trip. I'd like to go and I'm 2200 miles away  [big grin]

This one is in Albany

Thanks Ron, both look pretty interesting.

2200 miles ? I’m sure you might have an additional stop somewhere :)

@RJNeal if you are on Instagram

Follow me @studiovieceli and @gobywalnut is always posting truly amazing stuff if you like wood.
If you go to Goby, I’d suggest a briefcase full of cash or a high limit credit card plus a good size trailer.  [wink]

They have some amazingly beautiful very large slabs with corresponding high prices. But they also have smaller stuff too. They usually have a box of shorts for one price deals. A lot of highly figured black walnut and big leaf maple and on and on. Best to make a day out of it  [wink]

I would second Goby’s Walnut,  https://gobywalnut.com/

We drive down from the Seattle area to visit the store.   The truck fills up with walnut in a hurry, and the wallet empties faster.. [blink]

Goby’s does ship too, and its pretty reasonable for the shorts.

You also have Crosscut Hardwoods in Eugene, the Seattle store is a candy store for woodworkers so I have to imagine the Eugene Store would be the same.
