A & M Wood Specialty has an amazing selection of wood. It's worth the trip just to look at it all. If you go, don't miss the back where they keep the "musical instrument" woods and downstairs where the flitch cut veneer is cut and stacked.

I was wondering how much of their catalog they actually had on hand. Have you dealt with them...? If so, how large of a purchase did you need to make...?

Are you close to Stouffville? I bought my BB from Century Mill Lumber, great price and place.

Although I do appreciate the suggestion, and I didn't exactly say where in Ontario I'm located. The 17hr drive (one way) to the Thunder Bay location is a little more time/$$$ than I'm willing to commit.
17Hrs? Holy, I didn't realize Ontario was that big. I can be from Vancouver to Calgary is about that.

I am just shocked that the most populous province doesn't have an abundant supply

Good luck!

I've made it from Vancouver to Calgary in 8 hours (and that was before the coquihalla)... 17 hrs could get you close to Winnepeg (if you could maintain the rate (requires driving at night)

We have lots of Pizza Pizzas and Tim Hortons - that's the priority for most of the population.

I can leave home and be back within 2 hours with all the BB I can fit in my truck (and more than I can afford). It's not a common building material so it's not going to be in the average lumber store. They do have lots of it at the places I go.

AFAIK, all Home Depots carry BB, although in metric thicknesses not imperial.
