It depends on what you want it for. Large flicthes of clear NWC suitable for planking cost a fortune because they are rare these days.

Head up 53 toward International falls. Near Lake Kabetogama, look for a guy with a woodmizer across from the Gateway Store & gas station on the corner. Paste this into google maps and hit search: 48.408795,-93.049254

How close to Duluth are you?


If you are central there are other options.

I am in SE Wisconsin
As long as the mill has the lumber
The drive is OK to pick up wood

I checked with km hardwood, they do not have nor want to supply.
I drive past them everyday so it would be great to buy from them.
They do not have any air dried lumber...is that really important for a 6mph shanty??

There are dozens of small loggers and saw mills in northern Wisconsin and Michigan's U.P. that cut northern white cedar. Andreas
