Good Lumber Yard - Around Baltimore?


Anybody know of good Lumber Yards around Baltimore? I'm tired of going to chain places to get wood for basic projects. Some places seems to frown upon selling to individuals who aren't buying much.

I-84 lumber along I-40 is good.

Check yellow pages, there should be several good lumberyards around Baltimore. We have a really good one up here(2 hrs up 95), in Aston PA, lots of rough cut lumber in LOTS of species, also can do millwork. Delaware County Supply

I'd like a place that is honest, and has reasonable prices. Obviously the wood should be better quality than what you would find in Home Depot, or Lowes.

Try 84 lumber. On the East side there is Lee Lumberjack, midway lumber, Omalley. What part of town are you in?

I'll check those places out. Isn't 84 Lumber just another chain place? Are there pieces of wood better than what you'd get in other places?

What wood issues do you have? Framing? Trim? Cabinet ply? What honesty issues come into play?

When you go to a big home improvement stores, the wood is horrible. Anytime you sight the wood it usually always is bowed, or there are other problems with it. Like major knots, splits, or cracks, when you inspect them closely. I guess I'm picky when spending my money on wood, but honestly you should be.
