I’ve made a couple of trips to the local Home Depot and Lowe’s and their wood sucks!  Only have poplar and some oak and NONE of it is straight.  Most of it is not even close to straight!  Is that normal?  Where are y’all finding your neck wood stock?  Where are you finding woods like maple, walnut, etc?

Going to head to the closest Woodcraft (50 miles).  Hopefully they have some decent selection of something that is straight.  Are any of you ordering wood from online sources?

Thanks,

Mark

I'm out in the southwest roaming and I've recently seen HD's carrying maple, cedar, cherry, and birch in 1x3 and up sizes. I spied a 1.5x1.5x8 maple piece a few months back before I got into cbg's and didn't buy it. Went for the cherry and birch instead. Not all HD's carry the same wood and it's usually all where you would see the cedar 1x8's.


 Menards (I had to get out of the house so I made up an excuse to get TP and went at 6am) had Hickory and Mahogany all of a sudden.    I looked there previously but this is new. I sorted through two dozen and bought the only two straight ones.    Plus a couple other ones just to have a little stock.
