    A New/Old place to buy wood in Arizona

    For all of you Arizona woodworkers Powers Woodsource (Formaly Chandler hardwoods) is now open for busines).
    John (powers) has finaly gotten his permits and is open for business. They are located behind the antique mall on Chandler blvd off of Arizona Ave between Warner and Ray. They have a mill on site and will custom cut Mesquite. They also have a mill in Oregon so they do produce a lot of their own wood.
    They have over 1/2 Milliion Bd.ft of domestic and exotic hardwood over 40,000 of it is mesquite logs. For turners John gets a lot of Burls. Hours of operation are Mon-Fri 9-5 and Sat 10-2. Johns cell phonein case you get lost is 480-677-1473.
    I am not afiliated with them in any way just a satisfied customer.

    Oh and here's a link to their web site.
