In the June 2020 issue of Wood News, David Jones identifies several resources he uses for obtaining wood for his woodworking projects.
Where do woodworkers get their wood? The simple answer is anywhere they can. Keep in mind woodworking is a hobby for me, not a profession, so my needs are far less. Still, there are many opportunities to get wood. For example, a farmer friend of mine knows I am into woodworking and he will occasionally call to tell me they cleared a tree row and cut down a large Osage orange (or a walnut, or a locust, or…) and ask me if I would want any of the wood. Yes, I would.
