Exotic Woods

Our exotics come from all over the world and offer some very unique grains, colors, and patterns that you cant find anywhere else. Most of the exotics are surfaced 7/8, with a range of widths and lengths. We try to do the best to cater to your needs, because we understand your needs! We know that projects can be small and these woods can get expensive so we offer to cut the board for you and sell a minimum of 3-4’.
