    Hard Maple is hard to come by here, last time I was there Crosscut Hardwoods had some skip planed western maple for decent prices but it'll require some cleaning up. I picked up a load of European beech from them to build my second bench recently, I had to buy wider boards than I wanted but the guild discount made up for that. 

    If you want lots of material with minimal prep work, Hardwood Industries was the best local bulk supplier I found.

    I'm looking to build my forever workbench and would like to use hard maple without breaking the bank.  If anyone has leads on deals or surplus, please let me know.

    Happy New Year,
