Good source for trim?

Fori is not pleasedAugust 2, 2013

Would any be so kind as to recommend a good source for wood trim? I need to replace and match some 1950s (ie. skinny) Honduran mahogany window and door casings and it doesn't seem to be something our local lumberyard has an interest in stocking.

Aside from encouraging my neighbors with a mint condition matching house to "modernize" and then scavenging their tear-outs, I don't know where to look. Thanks!

Thanks Bob's nephew! I guess I sort of figured I'd be doing mail order and location wasn't important, but I'm in the San Francisco area. I'll see if the woodfinder can find me some local wood!

Try millwork manufacturers/sales stores.

I like Baird Brothers, they have really fast service and lots of wood species. Needed some maple trim, and the local millwork shop only sold poplar, unless I wanted a special run of only a 25ft, ca-ching.
