    A friend needs a small quantity of white oak, say 50 bf.  Can be rough sawn.  Woodcraft Walpole is out, the successors to Downes & Reeder told him they pull it and you take what they give you.

    Anyone know a source in Greater Boston where he could pick some up this week?

    Holt and Bugbee in Tewksbury, Ma carries everything and is a suppliers to most sources in Massachusetts. Call them prior and let them know what your looking for. They need a day or two to pull a lift of boards from the warehouses and set it on the ground in front of their retail bay. He can then pick through the stack and find what he likes. Please note it's a good idea to restack the boards moved off and not selected back on the lift.

    They may even have some White Oak in the retail bay, it may be S4S and alittle more expensive. Good luck and have fun. I always look forward to may trips there. Wonderful crew.

    The old Downes and Reader is now in Taunton. See my post in this forum from May 27, 2021. Run by the son of the original Mr. Reader and same system - pick your own from the bins.
