Resources

When you look for hardwood lumber in a state you want options:

  • One-stop shops that have every single species you can think of
  • Urban lumber stores that offer up locally sourced wood with live edge slabs
  • Mills with onsite kilns for direct access to locally sourced lumber.

While we’re continuing a search for an urban mill, hardwood lumber in New York overall is easy to find hardwood. And, unique to the City, you’ll find a few shops that specialize in cutting your purchase into final size.

Featured New York Wood

While the Sugar Maple is the state tree of New York, the forests of New York are dominated by the well known Red Oak.

While Red Oak has went through streaks of popularity, it’s a wood that every serious woodworker should make a project (or dozen) from. But, just watch out for it’s tendency to splinter in crosscuts and keep your carbides sharp.
