Mike,

Wood choices are yours totally.   Some use boxwood, cherry, ebony, holly, oak, basswood.  Just whatever they feel comfortable it and is affordable.

 

As for where....  Crown Timbers, The Lumberyard, for starters.  You'll have to specify what sizes and quantities as I don't think they have a  "timbering set" as such for the Triton.

Thank you for the help. Also where is a good place to get the pulley's dead eye and all the other stuff. I like to deal with someone who has used one of the vendors.

Mike,

 

There's plenty of places.. go back to here: http://modelshipworld.com/ and scroll down.   On the right is a list of sponsors.   One place may not have what you need or want but between them.. I think you can find just about anything.   These sponsors have all been used by members. 

 

Disclaimer:  I haven't used all of them.
