I'm in central NC, not especially way out in the woods, and you would never think of mills here, but I found out that there are 7 sawmills within about 10 miles of my house. That is all I could find, and it was mostly by accident that I found those. So I am sure there are more. Plus a store with many types of wood about 20 miles away. So, check the phone book. Ask anyone if they know where you can get wood - sometimes that, or a small sign beside their drive, is the only way to find them. And check with tree trimmers, etc.
Almost forgot. Check the classified of WoodenBoat.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
