Default Looking for wood

My name is Jim and I am originally from Minnesota. I took a job west of Louisville for the winter. I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find some exotic hard wood lumber mills in the area? Would rather buy from a local mom and pop then online for my project materials. Thank you for any help you may have.

Then you already know how to dress for cold weather. Lived there 1974-1977 and then southeast of L'ville about 50 miles for six years. Good luck in your quest for wood.

Jim,

I used to live in Louisville as well. If you really want to find some great craftsmen and some sources for wood check out Berea, Ky. There are some great turners in that area.

There are some furniture manufacturers in Bardstown. And bourbon barrels as well.

You might check out Marwood over in Jeffersonville Indiana just across the river. They carry a lot of live edge slabs and chunks of nice wood. They have carried a good selection of burl also. http://marwoodslabs.com/

Not the closest, but may be a nice expedition. I have had good luck with them in the past.
