Good Questions: Solid, Thick Wood Shelving Source?

Hello AT,

Where's the best place to get thick solid wooden shelving?

I'm thinking of putting up a couple thick wooden (maybe something along the lines of pine?) on back wall of kitchen. Would like something solid, clean, and rustic-looking. Would this be expensive and does anyone have any ideas of where I might be able to find something like this?

Thanks, Jen

Dear Jen,

If you go to a regular lumberyard you will probably be disappointed. For wood with any character, you want to find used lumber or fancy New wood. Here's the folks we would check with first:

Wood-o-Rama: on the UWS is a good source for new lumber, but they should have a lead for you.
M. Fine Lumber Company: We just learned about these guys in Brooklyn. They will pull you down a piece of wood, cut it up and plane it down for you right quick.
Lumber Liquidators: These guys do floors, but should be good for larger size wood as well.
Mountain Lumber: Deluxe old wood. They ship from Virginia.
Bart Bettencourt: For a sustainable wood solution.
Build it Green! Salvage: This great Brooklyn resource takes donations and sells salvage, surplus and green building materials on the cheap.

Anyone else?
