    Default In search of juniper, aka atlantic white cedar

    I'm trying to locate a new source for juniper in north Carolina or surrounding states as our past sources have dried up. Looking for 2 x 10s, 7/8", and 5/4". Any leads would be greatly appreciated as we have a 65 footer to build, but are having a difficult time locating dry lumber.

    I have contacted rex, they didn't have any, but they are looking for me. Thanks for the reply.

    I use a lot of Alaskan Yellow Cedar. It is also a very good working member of the Cypress family. Often knot free and very aromatic.

    And Port Orford Cedar - very similar to Alaskan Yellow & often cheaper.

    Beety Lumber in Mann's Harbor, N.C. mills Juniper. I don't know if he has the dimensions on hand that you need but you might give him a try.
    He places ads in our sponsor's magazine from time to time.

    Mr Beety goes to Nicaragua twice a year to source exotics. He doesn't answer his phone at those times due to costs. If you have trouble reaching him let me know and I'll check to see if he is in the States.

    Thanks Tom, I spoke with him and he had the lumber for the side planking. Now if I can just find the 2x10s for the framing I'll be good.

    Port Orford Cedar is endangered and very hard to find unless you can find a private land owner who needs a tree removed. Port Orford is just slightly less than gold in price! The Japanese have purchased most of the prime stock for maintaining their Cedar Built temples and shrines.

    A friend had the good fortune of locating a railway tressle that was being removed. He bought all the timbers at a good price. I am belssed by having access to his lumber stash.

    Wow! Times change. I needed all new bottom planks for my boat - which was originally AYC. I bought the boards (2x8, 10, & 12 - roughly 1500 bd. ft) about 5-6 years ago. POV was $4.50/ bd. ft. AYC was 11+. I would've kept her original with AYC, but 7K vs over 16K made the decision for me. Actually, even the 7K was quite a bit of a bit of a gasp.

    I bought mine from Rodney Rose in Beaufort, 252-342-6442. He is on the right, beside Blackbeard's Seafood Rest, which I think he also owns. On US 70, not quite to the liquor store. Haven't been over there lately, but when I bought wood for my Harkers Island well skiff, he had a lot of sizes. With a name like Guthrie, you ought to have enough family in the wood boat business to be able to find lots of juniper.
