The table below contains wood cost information I and some of my customers gleaned to help us get a better deal.
I've actually made purchases from Bristol Valley Hardwoods, WoodCraft, and Steve Wall Lumber but not the others, yet.
If you find other competitive sources, please let me know and I'll include them.

It's obvious that there are multiple species/grades within some of the wood types so be sure what you're getting before ordering
