While there is a good supply of hardwood lumber in the area surrounding Salt Lake City the options further out are hard to come by. But, there are a few great options in the city; and a few custom sawmills to choose from.

And, like most areas, there are a few great sources of reclaimed or “old” wood to make unique pieces from.

  1. Timberline Tools (1402 W Center, Orem Utah) has a selection of hardwood lumber, including some exotics. While the selection isn’t nearly as extensive as McBeaths, they do have enough that I usually don’t have to go further North for my hardwood (I live South of Timberline and usually do small projects).

  2. I can’t thank you enough for providing this information. Obtaining an understanding of the hardwood situation in Utah is as important as knowing the retail locations.

    Thanks again.
