I just received my order from Wall Lumber. I order figured maple which was already dimensioned to 1/2". Each bundle was $25.00 and comes with 4 pieces about 4'. It's great for projects, and if you don't have a planer. It works for me.

Rolf, I take it you are happy, the stock was flat and straight? Did you get the curly or birdseye maple? That's my problem is I need good and straight stock that isn't cupped and is flat. Been going to check out Wall on my next order.

Both Rockler and Woodcraft carry limited supplies of small dimension lumber in exotic woods. If you have a local store you should stop in for a visit. The staff is helpful and may even be able to help you find a new friend with re-saw ability and a planer.
