Good God, man- this is the WBF!! If one wants a batten, he first buys $4500 of woodworking machinery, then goes to Lowes, buys an 8' 2X4, and MAKES THEM!! SHEESH! :eek: :D

Check your Yellow Pages for cabinet shops and ask them for their sources for moldings- Gascoine Lumber here in Seattle, many others. Good luck!

Call the local shops dedicated to making custom mouldings. They run a lot of mahogany through their saws and have oddles of off cuts. Much of it is ****e, sap or reaction wood, but there is a fair amount that is good and just too narrow for them to use. Best part is it's cheap or free, because it's waste to them. Then haul it to a cabinet shop and have them shape it to your desire. That's the inexpensive way to do it.
