Best Price For Hardwood On The Los Angeles/LA County Area


Have a customer that wants an outdoor bench made of White Oak that will be finished with marine penetrating epoxy for a natural look.

I'm going to need about 20 board feet of 8/4 and 15 of 6/4 100% clear. I've been to Peterman Lumber in Fontana and they had a good selection but it was quite the drive and if there's a place in San Fernando Valley or near by that would be more convenient. Where do you LA area guys get hardwood from that isn't outrageously priced?

Not sure if they have discounted prices if I opened an account but I don't buy enough or often to really justify opening one even if they did.

My uncle bought a few cutting boards I had lying around this past weekend and wants me to come down and build a headboard to match a bunch of antique furniture he has. He's in Long Beach, I was planning on going to Bohnhoff Lumber in Vernon but maybe I'll swing down there and check Austins out.

I loved being a few hours from Frank Miller Lumber. Used to go buy a few thousand board feet at a time of quarter sawns. Paid less than $4.00 a board foot for quartered or rift white oak.

Odds are all the QSWO or RSWO your buying came from FML.

Broke my heart when I had to pay $6.23 a board foot here in Colorado.

Tell them you want a contractor registration card. No account needed and you'll get better prices.
