Road trip: BARNEY & CAREY LUMBER SUPPLIERS

Lately I have really wanted to purchase some real wood and not the stuff Home Depot passes as wood, I just wanted to see what was around me as far as suppliers were. Lately I have been really wishing that I could mill my own wood but since I don't own a thickness planer or a joiner and cant afford them that task seems very far away. So I needed a place that had a good selection of wood and not cost an arm and a leg to dress them for me.

I found a place near me in Avon,MA that I thought was worth a visit and its name is Barney &  Carey, so I took my son and went visit it.

I was not disappointed they have a decent selection of hardwoods, moldings and cabinet grade plywood including Baltic birch, their prices seemed about market price no higher or lower, but what I really liked was that they were very reasonable as far as their milling services. Its definitely not the biggest supplier but they have some really nice lumber both rough and dressed (meaning S4S). I took a few pictures and you can also click the link to their website.

As a token of my visit I purchased a piece of 1x6 ASH so as that I can use it on my current drill press cart project.

 They don't have a lot of live edge slabs like this, but what they do have is very nice

 A decent chop saw station, upstairs in the facility is the workshop and I am assuming the milling facility as well.
