Hi folks,
    I'm needing to build some drawer boxes and thinking Baltic birch is a good way to go. The real stuff; not the Chinese made junk from most of the big box stores.
Only want a few sheets so the wholesale places will probably be out of the running.
I am in Cumberland, Md. Draw a circle with Morgantown, Pittsburgh, Frederick and Winchester at the 3,6,9 and 12:00 positions and that's my
reasonable driving range.
Any suggestions?


Thanks,
Jim

Yes.  Go to a lumber yard.  Preferably a hardwood dealer.

You might try Hicksville Planing Mill north of Hagerstown. (301) 842-3474

It's been several years since I've been there and I honestly don't remember if they carry sheet goods but they might.

They are Mennonite owned and operated so they don't have a website and they don't always answer their phone but you can get through to them. If you have never been there, you owe it to yourself. They are a major supplier to furniture builders, their prices are very fair and they have no problem letting you dig through their stock. It's worth the call.

When it comes to 'lectricity, I'm a pretty good wood turner.
