This Place Gives Me Wood

…or will in the future.

I’ve heard great things about the guys at CAG Lumber many times over the past couple of years.  They’re located just a few miles away from my day job.  I’m not quite sure why I haven’t visited them until now.  Maybe, it was because I had another lumber yard just miles away from my house.  Maybe, it was because they’re in the opposite direction of my commute.

Whatever the reason, I decided to finally give them a visit during my lunch break yesterday.  I’m glad I did.  The staff is friendly and helpful.  They stock exotic species I haven’t found anywhere else.  Looking for spalted, wormy, or quilted boards?  They’ve got them.  They even stock reclaimed lumber.  They’re prices are fair, and the quality of their boards exceeds that of the other local suppliers.

One of my favorite aspects of their operation is that they stack all of their boards horizontally, and label the length on the end.  It’s pretty easy to locate boards of a desired length without removing everything from the stack.

If you live within a couple hours of Gainesville, GA, I highly suggest you give CAG Lumber a visit.
