I'm embarking on a project to build a little cabinet.

My question is, where can I go to get pre-planed lumber? I am buying a few tools, but a surface planer is out of the question! I checked Home Depot but all they have is raw lumber.

Any suggestions?

Some specialty lumber yards might be willing to plane a few pieces for you (check the yellow pages). But perhaps a better solution is just to rent a planer. You can rent them reasonably cheap. Check with your local Home Depot--many of them have a tool rental program.

Yeah I may end up doing that.

Other than Lowe's and HD, are there other reputable dealers around? After the cabinet I think I'm going to try to build a headboard.

Do either of Woodcraft (in the Pleasant Valley shopping center off Glenwood) or Klingspor's (off Capital Blvd.) carry wood? If not, perhaps they can refer you to a local supplier.

Thanks for the recommendations! I had no idea that there were quite a few other options out there.

I'll be checking them out.

There is a place off Poole Road that used to be called Hardwood Supply I think, now they are called Wurth Wood Group. Wurth Wood Group Locations They have all kinds of wood, from run of a mill to exotic. Most of it is available planed on both faces, but rough cut on one of the sides, so as log as you have a table saw you should be good to go. I bought some nice looking mable there for a bar top last year.

Reviving the thread instead of creating a new one:

Looking for S2S lumbers not only planned but jointed that is no bow or other default, just straight line and same thickness on 2 faces.

All the references in the thread do not provide jointed S2S. Searching on Internet I find:

1-https://www.ncsawmill.com that seems to offer milling services (straighting and planning) but the price for low volume does not make sense. So, I guess they are not interrested in less than 100 ft long

2-https://www.hardwoodstore.com/ that also seems to offer milling services, but the price of rough lumber seems way overprice compare to capital city lumber or ncsawmill

So if anyone on this thread know where to buy real s2s no bowed lumbers at a fair price, I am interrested. Or a wood milling service shop.

Thanks
