I am building a custom home bar and I am looking to find some rough sawn antique lumber wide enough for the bar top. Just need some direction on how to go about finding a place that can cut to my specs.
Around here, New England, when the kind of lumber you're looking for is required, we usually investigate architectural or home salvage companies. Another option is to find folks who specialize in salvaging old barns. Barn-board is a great source of old lumber. If what you're looking for is simply rough sawn, find a sawmill in the area.
