Though it would be nice to have a thread on ideas as to where to locate this growing resource.
Some have mentioned cabinet makers. Here's another : people who manufacture wood flooring. Some actually specialise in hard wood floors, and you KNOW there's all kinds of plannings and/or dust to be had if one approaches them the right way. For health reasons most will capture the dust in bags and so its no biggie to move it from there to a container, like a tote (or even directly into the tote) if you can get the right relationship going.

We're embarking down this road and wondering what the best type of wood is. Obviously nothing with finishes on it.

I found most places around here will have glue in the shavings from laminating wood together etc.
I did happen to find a Mennonite who makes spindles for chair backs with oak, he guarantees no glue in his shavings and practically just gave me the shavings... I will be bringing him some biodiesel and homemade bread on the next visit! Wink
Cheers,

From what I've been able to gather red oak seems to be "the best" although any hard wood would be good. You definitely want a wood that has not been finished before planning, which is where cabinet making and floor manufacturers should shine. Or like Jon, check out the Mennonite or Amish in your area,see what they have.
