  • Loess Hills

    Has anyone ever used wood from Loess Hills? I found them on the interwebs and like his pricing. They have more selection than is listed in their wood shed, as an fyi.

    I've purchased quite a bit of basswood from them over this last year with no complaints. I don't however, have much to compare them to as my prior basswood purchases had been from ebay sellers. I do plan on continuing to buy from them as I need material.

      I use and promote them when ever the opportunity arises. This is carved from a glue up I put together from wood from Loess Hills.

        I think their wood is as good as any out there, and their prices on basswood and butternut are the best I've found. They also carry bark-on basswood. George is a nice guy to deal with, too.

          I agree on the last comment. I've been taking to George in email and have found him to be very helpful and appreciate his response time. I'm looking forward to ordering and getting some wood from him.

            Fine place and have ordered from him and as if you are specific in your email request...he does great. Keep in mind his butternut can have borer holes in it. Not a big problem since butternut is getting hard to find and what is out there usually has the borer holes.
