Mail-order source for hardwood plywood
The mahogany ply that I ordered for the Greene & Greene desktops arrived yesterday from Bristol Valley Hardwood in New York State. I am very pleased with the quality and price of the wood. Including shipping, it was cheaper than I could find it locally, and they were able to ship pieces via UPS that were large enough for my purposes (I needed two 31" by 55" pieces). I bought two 4′ by 8′ pieces (which UPS would not ship), and Bristol cut them for me to 1" larger than my final needed size so that UPS would ship them. This saved me from the expense of truck rate shipping. I will use the cut-off pieces that were left over for other projects in the future.
Bristol has a wide range of different furniture grade ply as well as regular lumber packaged for shipping. I’ll add Bristol to my bag of tricks for when I need good hardwood ply going forward.
