    Woodworking Supply Websites

    Perhaps this has been done before on FW but I am just getting back into woodturning/woodworking. I think there are others like me. Knowledgeable members often refer to different sites. I always check them and slowly I am building a list of good suppliers. Of course, I know Woodcraft, Rockler, etc. but there are many out there that have good value.

    If there is interest it might be good for members to post their favorite sites and a short review on what is good about them. This should build a really good list we can all use. Just an idea.

    Well, others more experienced than me will have their say, but I've had very good experiences with Packard Woodworks. I've ordered a few things from them and been very happy. It's always more complicated for me because I'm usually shipping into Canada. They sent me exactly what I wanted and were very responsive back and forth by email. What I ordered arrived in perfect condition.

    I've ordered from Highland Woodworking too. They were not quite as responsive as Packard, but I did finally get my stuff in perfect condition.

    I really like Wood Essence in Canada for finishing products. Good selection of unusual things and very responsive.

    Lee Valley sets the standard for great service and great stuff. I order from them regularly.

    Cynthia named the main ones I was thinking of. There's also Craft Supplies USA (for turning stuff) and Penn State Industries.

    Although it leans toward the woodturning-related sites, Ron Sardo over at Woodturner's Resource has complied a pretty impressive Resource Listing.
