*** I was just looking for something more close to Detroit area. They seemed to me to be worth the drive.***
Me too. started at Plymouth - no ash in stock. could order it special for about 500.00 for 35bf - get real buddy.
then it was Northville - no Ash, but a very helpful salesman pointed me to Armstrong, even let me use their internet hookup to get the contact info.
WoodCraft of Canton has some 8/4 but once again - too expensive and not enough.
last stop was Mans in Canton - no 8/4 of anything - If it aint gonna be made into a floor, we can't help you.
The following week is when I went to Armstrong, It was so cold that day that I didn't want to do anything but get in, get my ash, and get back into a warm car. The out buildings where most of the inventory is kept are not heated.

This where I spent most of my visit. In the slot where the 8/4 ash lives.
I picked out 3) 12 footers and proceeded to the heated area where the boards were cross-cut in half then planed to 1.75 inches thick. The final result.
