Maine Woodworking Resources

Before searching for your hardwood lumber in Maine, it’s worth taking a look at local guilds and woodworking clubs. These are great resources that often have discounts (for members) at key suppliers.

Featured Hardwood

The White Pine is Maine’s state tree, but a hardwood worth using is either the Northern Red Oak or Hard Maple. 

Hard Maple is my preferred wood for desks, and is easy to sand and finish (remember to try dye, not stain).
