Home Depot does not seem to have any older looking oak casing and baseboard for my 1905 house that I am restoring. Are there smaller specialty places that have stuff like that, and if so, how would I find them.
Thanks for any help.

Depending on where in Massachusetts you are, try looking in your yellow pages under "Millwork". The big box folks aren't likely to carry what you're looking for, and perhaps not even the smaller lumberyards. But under the "millwork" heading you might find a "custom" millwork fabricator who can make what you need. It will, of course, cost more than the big box guys.

Thank you, I will head in that direction! It surprises me (though maybe it shouldn't) that this would be hard to find seeing as there are so many older houses in New England. Strange.

It's not hard to find. The Brosco catalouge ( they sell to real lumberyaards and building suppliers) has some. You can google for Dykes Lumber also.

And then there are thousands of small millwork shops.

You just can't get quality stuff at HD. They aim to market to a customer with an average family income of 57K or people who think in that neighborhood financially.

Thank you. Both of those places look great and Brosco has dealers right in my back yard. Thanks again!
