Like Having My Own Personal Millworks
Been coming to Woodworkerssource for many years. I know it's costly to bundle (neatly) hardwoods and plywood (cut to size), not to mention shipping costs. I'll keep coming back, though, because these folk are the BEST.

Furniture squares
Arrive on time and well packed. Three of the squares were the specified 30 inches and the fourth was 30 3/8 inches. Not a problem. Will definitely buy again.

Good quality, beautiful grain.
Wood is true to size (+1/16") and straight. Very very few defects in the large amount of wood purchased.
