    Hi guys, i often have problems finding some uncommon wood for luthiery, and i was thinking we can make a list (if it doesnt already exist) of the online shops the sells woods worldwide that would be useful to every one of us little luthiers :p
    I can keep updated this first post and try to organize it with some sense.
    Every kind of wood like necks, bodies, tops, veneers, fretboard would be useful.
    I start with these:

    Exotic Woods
    Fraser Valley Fine Woods
    Luthiers Mercantile International, Inc. Guitar Builder Wood and Supplies
    Koa Wood for Luthier Supply - Hawaii - guitar woods, guitar tonewoods, curly koa wood for guitar building
    Hearne Hardwoods Internet Store! :: Guitar / Luthier Wood
    Rivolta snc - Tonewood (Italy)
    Wood Turning Supplies, Turning Wood for Wood Turners, and Tonewood for Luthiers and Guitar Builders -Vedder Mountain Hardwoods
    Luthier Supplies Tonewoods - The Guitar Sherpa
    Luthier Tonewood Supplier, Guitar Tops, Body Blanks, Acoustic Sets, Neck Blanks
    Rare and Exotic Wood Veneer from Herzog Veneers, Inc.
    Exotic Wood Online - Suppliers of Hardwood Lumber and Veneers

    Every suggestion on how to organize the list or everything else would be welcome :)

    Thank you.

    Well, for those who live in Mexico (2 tops lol) you cant have those sites ship here. You can however have them ship to the US, then that person take it to you.

    The only place I've seen online is a guy on the "mexican ebay" (mercado libre). He has top quality woods though, and is a very nice person.

    Maderas para guitarras (Lauderia) Aros y Fondos - $ 50.00 en MercadoLibre

    I've used Exotic Woods of Burlington Ontario before and would recommend them to any Canadians. Check out the online stock or give them a call, they're great to talk to and ship fast.

    I'll happily support this - the guys and gals at Exotic Woods are awesome. If you can ever visit it in person, it's mindblowing.

    Designholz.com
    The last one doesn't really sell "tonewood", and the planks I bought there were not really straight, but if you have some time to let them dry and don't care about losing a few % of the wood through planing, they have some nice stuff.

    Just wondering, is it me or has Oregon Wildwood gone offline? Haven't been able to visit their website for over a week right now.
