Greenland Paddle wood - Toronto
Posted by: joezamosc on Apr-11-13 11:35 AM (EST) Category: Paddles
Looking into carving my first GP paddle - and I'm searching hard to find some good wood in the Toronto area.
I hit the big-box stores and what an adventure that is - every single piece of pine and cedar is riddled with knots. Can anyone recommend a lumber yard/store where I can get some good quality (pine/cedar/sitka spruce) knot-free wood in the GTA?

I second what Greg said.
You could go wider as well|

It's worth looking at 2X8s - 2X12s as well. You might be able to find a 3 1/2 X 84" section in there. I've cut strips & laminated for the couple of paddles that I've built.
