Building wood on the west coast ?

Post by TUGMYWAY »

Will be looking of good wood supplyer . CA,AZ,UT. Don't mind driving to make a pickup.?
Also how do I get 1/8" thick Mahogany ? Or is this something I will need to resaw on my band saw? The Okoume plywood strips I will need for the Gentry can be ripped on the table saw,but the thin Mahogany is throwing me a curve. I'm not very good at resawing. :oops:

I bought 6/4 stock (from McBeaths in the bay area) and then found a local lumber yard to re-saw into 3 pieces. I then put those thrum my planner down to appropriate thickness. I'm sure you can find a lumber yard in AZ that can do that for you. They make quick work of it and usually did it while I waited. Goodluck!
