Resaw and milling services in WNC?

I’m just starting a van conversion project and am looking for some 3/8” x 3” stock in 14’ lengths (for a ceiling treatment). My first thought was the Hardwood Store, but they don’t have resaw capability.

I am in Hendersonville. Are you aware of any place in the western half of the state or Upstate SC that might have the ability to resaw and mill long boards? I’m open either to bringing my own lumber or buying it there. Species is somewhat flexible, but I’m hoping to find something relatively light and with a grain pattern that can be stained to resemble cherry. I’m thinking birch or alder might be good options.

Thanks,

Dave, you might try to find a Wood-Mizer guy close to you. Their mills can cut precisely.

I've used Tidewater. They are OK, but not anywhere as good as the Hardwood Store in Gibson. Have a limited selection of product and are relatively expensive for less than 100 BF.

Probably not telling you anything that you do not already know, but...

3/8” x 3” stock in 14’ lengths is very flexible. Transporting on the usual cartop or vantop carrier will have a lot of drooping and flexing in the wind unless you do a really good job of strapping the boards together to get (essentially) a laminated beam for transport.

Yep, these’ll have to ride inside the van.
