Resources

With a little search you’ll find a great selection of wood in Idaho. And due to the local forestry, Idaho woodworkers have access to a variety of locally harvested cedar and softwoods that are usually shipped all over the USA (and abroad).

But, while most states are bursting with 10-15 lumber stores, Idaho has a solid top 5 and then tapers into softwoods and cedar suppliers. 

Lastly, while the major metro areas in other states are quite some distance away Idaho finds itself on a major interstate thru-fare. So, if you can’t find what you need then odds are you can ship it in.
