Best place to buy wood in Canada

Looking for some help finding the best place to buy ship building wood materials in Canada. Or any reputable on line stores that will ship to Canada.

Hi Pierre, look at the thread "Purchasing wood strips in North America" recently started by Worldway in this forum. I listed some vendors and contact info (which I have not used yet). Worldway used one and seems to have had a positive experience.

I recently (last month) read a log from someone in the Niagara region who found a Cdn wood supplier near them - I'll try to remember who it was who made the post and write back.

You could check with member Worldway who in his build log on the Mare Nostrum wrote:

 

 I ended up dealing with an out of town wood dealer who sells small quantities of veneer.  He is going to send me 5 sq ft of Sapele and 5 sq ft of an equivalent to Ramin.

 

He indicated later he was happy with what he rec'd

I was able to get some excellent Swiss Pear from East Coast Specialty Hardwoods. Shipping to Alberta was reasonable.

 

Cheers, Cole

Pierre:

 

You might try KJP Fine Hardwoods, located in Ottawa. I've never been there, but I think this is the place that a friend who does fine woodworking goes (he's happy with them.)

 

Visit their website to see if that is what you are looking for.

I used A & M Wood Specialty out of Cambridge. Very good results. Great to deal with, Very friendly and accommodating. However I believe they only sell veneers, about 0.5 mm thick.  Not sure about anything thicker.

They say they do custom milling, you may have to contact them about the sizes you require

I had to Google Long-Sault and see you are out by Cornwall.

I've dealt with Exotic Woods in Burlington (by Hamilton) but not mail order nor cut/milled to size.

 

Give them a phone call and discuss what you need.

I found the website helpful and them very helpful over the telephone... but I drove over (45 mins) and picked up what I needed.
