Every once in a while I get to visit this lumber supplier in Des Plaines IL.
They are Owl Hardwood and have a great selection of different woods.
I asked for the Sitka Spruce section and sure enough,they've got it,
and it looks great. However, don't ask them for aircraft wood, they won't
sell it for that. You can ask for sail spar material and they take you right
to it. The cost is about 40% of what A/S and Wicks sells it for. I don't
know if they ship, but it sure beats the heck out of paying the big bucks.
