    Hello dear friends,
    Im looking for a lumber supplier who will sell me curly and quilted lumber so I can cut from it 18.5"x8"x1/2" (47x20x1.25cm) boards for tops. Does anybody knows a supplier in the US or Europe that will sell me this lumber in a reasonable price? (And I dont mean pre-cut expensive tops like those StewMac and Northridge sell.)

    Thank you and have a great weekend.

    Have you tried the woodfinder.com website? http://www.woodfinder.com/
    Also, check your local phonebook for hardwood lumber suppliers. Depending on where you are, you might find a pretty good supplier. West Penn Hardwoods is having problems with their site, but check them out http://www.westpennhardwoods.com
    Luthier's Mercantile has instrument quality: http://www.lmii.com
    Gilmer Wood Co has been around for a long time: https://www.gilmerwood.com/
    Keim is another source: http://www.keimlumber.com/
    Logsplitters: https://www.logsplitters.com/musical-grade-wood/
    Also, don't overlook eBay. You'll get pictures, and you can get notifications of new material everyday, until you find what you want. I found some nice birdseye and fiddleback stock, as well as Brazilian Rosewood (watch out for this, however, there's a clown selling Kingwood as Brazilian Rose), Cocobolo, African Blackwood and more.

    I once bought a fingerboard from this ebay vendor film4, I returned it immediately. Fake Brazilian rosewood! Is this the seller you are referring to, or you are talking about someone else?
