Mark,

Sounds like a great meeting.  Question:  does McIlvain sell to individuals, or do they work strictly on the supplier/wholesale market?  Cal
Son of a period furnituremaker, serious hobbiest since 2003 or so.  Construction Manager by day.  2 children, ages 15 and 13.

Calvin, It was a fantastic meeting and more than one participant (and perhaps even one featured presenter) was heard to say how much they valued the gathering and exchange of ideas.  Shannon Rogers would be able to provide the official answer to your question, but I believe that until very recently the answer would have been "no."  However, we now have our own embedded SAPFM agent (aka Shannon) to sort out the poor quality stuff (e.g., unwanted rift-sawn mahogany, boards that won't make good moulding because of birdseye, too much flame, etc) and offer it up via hardwoodtogo.com.  Shannon has a small selection posted on the site, but you can also contact him to ask him to keep his eye out for something specific you have in mind.  (Note that for now this is a project Shannon's running in addition to his primary responsibilities).
