Anyone who is in the "North County" area should give Saroyan Hardwoods a try. A gentleman there named Dan Holbert could not have been more friendly or helpful.
There was a wider selection of each type of lumber than my usual (and local) yard. I picked up some nice walnut and cherry while dad got some 16/4 maple for some turnings he's doing and some ply and MDF for the usual uses around the shop.
San Marcos is not local for me but, it is right near mom and dad's so when I visit, I think I'll be taking the truck from now on ;-)
