Local places for hardwood?

I used to get my hardwoods from Intermountain Wood Supply, but walked in there yesterday to find out they had closed operation. Where do you guys get your wood?

That’s no good, they supplied a lot of our members! Here’s a list of others though.

they will still deliver to Wichita from their Omaha location. not sure on minimums

There’s Schmucker Lumber in Inman. They advertise a lot on CL. I haven’t been there, I’m waiting for a new project to come along. There’s Liberty Hardwoods in KC (that’s a drive also). I’ve heard there’s also a source in Newton or Hesston. Nothing much around here anymore. Once in awhile there’s stuff on CL but you have to be careful.

There’s also Richard’s Wood Shop in Kechi.

I went over to Schmacher Lumber at Inman a couple of weeks ago. They have a pretty good variety of exotics. Prices aren’t too bad. They will cut down to a 4’ length too. It is actually west of Inman. Nice people.

Star Lumber on W. Irving has a hardwood selection. If you are interested in KS hardwoods,

There is a Sawmill in Bellvue, KS. US 24 between Wamego and St. Mary’s. Great selection of area woods. They buy from local land owners and process. My F-I-L sold them trees from his farm. The buyer would come by every 5 -8 years and they would walk the wooded areas and select appropriate trees.
