Thread: Suppliers of high quality 1/8" hardwood?

    Suppliers of high quality 1/8" hardwood?

    I'm trying to find some inexpensive sources of ready to use 1/8" solid hardwood to cut some samples for customers. 2"x2"x1/8" would be ideal. I can live with bigger pieces up to 12"x12"x1/8"

    Can someone make a recommendation? Thanks.

  2. Do you have a Wood Craft in your area?

    I have Michaels and Joanns which sell scrap balsa or 1/8" birch ply.

    Lowes and Home Depot sell 1/4" red oak and 1/4" poplar but it's not flat.

    No "wood craft"

    I bought some small custom walnut boards from them last year and was
    very pleased. Of course quantity is a major issue with these companies

    Woodcraft and Rockler both do Internet sales and have a wide variety of species in 1/8"...not cheap though.

    "Design"? Possibly. "Intelligent"? Sure doesn't look like it from this angle.

    Try the Wood & Shop. I've gotten some beautiful 1/8" thick ebony from them. They seem to carry a lot of different hardwoods in thicknesses from 1/16" up.

    I haven't ordered from these folks yet, but their prices look to be very good compared to others I've found (they have many different types of wood):

    Hope you find just what you need.

    I have ordered a fair amount of stuff from these guys and they are very good http://www.sloanswoodshop.com/default.htm . I would also check my local area, in Austin there is a place called Fine Lumber that usually carries a pretty decent baltic birch. The couple times they didn't I went to Sloans.
