    Trip to new lumber yard

    I went out to cpj on Friday and found in the bargain bin sycamore, sapele, and hickory. I came home with about 30 bf of sycamore @ about $1 bf. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Trip to new lumber yard

    Second this. Cpj has a bargain bin in the corner where everything goes for about 1/2 price. So it's good for finding boards for smaller projects. Northland in manassas is good time. For those of us in northern VA we are blessed with a number of good hardwood lumber yards that are better than the one in Vienna. And for a longer day trip one can make the trek up to hearne hardwoods. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    purchasing wood is HARD

    Like others said, head over to Hearne Hardwoods. There is another good hardwood lumber yard in the same area that I can't remember the name of. Both of them are happy to help you with big or little purchases. There are apps that you can get for your smartphone that will help you with the boardfoot math if you are math challenged Like the others said, the problem is once you get to the wood store its hard to stop buying the stuff.
