I love Builder Direct pricing but the shipping cost is killing me on this one. It takes my $1.12 per linear ft up to $1.75.

Any suggestions?

Good: Queen City lumber, h&s, or 84

If you want real wood, look up millwork in the yellow pages and go to those places and see who has the best. A good local lumber supply might carry good stuff, but Lowes or other big box store won't.

I went by Lowe's today and officially crossed them off my list. I will check out the millwork suggestion too. Thanks!

They can match discontinued old moldings and even custom make whatever you would like.

We went some place when we moved here. It was out in the middle of nowhere and they milled it right there, in all shapes and sizes. It was a very cool place. Let's see if I can conjure up a memory...........

Pretty sure it was this place..

The Moulding Source Custom Wood Mouldings - Located in Mooresville, North Carolina


It was definitely in Mooresville, and this place looks familiar, ie a warehouse sitting in a field at the end of a road.
