Didn't think of this before. Should have, because it is what I would do. Just do a search online. Something like: exotic wood for sale online.

Amazon would probably be the last place I would buy wood from, I checked wood prices once, for some long forgotten reason, and the prices were very high.

If you want free exotic wood, pallets can be a good source, depending on where the pallet was made. I know teak has been found in some. I have some nice Spanish cedar out of one. Got some wood have no idea at all what it is. It's almost white, has no grain that I can tell, and a rasp won't touch it. Saws and power planes nicely tho.

I've bought from these guys and been VERY pleased with the products.

Also bought from Amazon and some pieces (cut-offs) from Rockler, and those were good, too.
