Need a 1' x 12' piece of Oak.  Does anyone know a place in or around Tulsa that has pieces of oak that long?

Am building a long low bookshelf under a large window and want the top piece level with the window and want it to be a nice piece of oak to match the furniture in the room.

You might try Mill Creek also.   I've used them in the past.  They have larger/longer sizes of hardwoods.

No discussion of wood is complete with out a Beavis & Butthead reference.

Actually, I was going to ask the same question.  Artist needs a 1' x 12', but doesn't specify thickness.   Unless he is looking for a 1" x 12" x 12', which I'm pretty sure Mill Creek will have.  It's tough to get thicker single pieces that wide and that long.

(I had the same sort of issue when I recently built a mantle for my fireplace.  I ended up using three pieces of 2"x8"x10' pine from a 100 YO barn, and laminated them to form a 4.5" thick shelf.  Looks good, but Artist may not want the stacked look.)

But you have a brain and unlike BreadforBrains, don't always reside in the gutter.

He doesn't even understand the difference between a board and plywood as he proved with his post.

Was needing a 1" thick piece.  Managed to make it work with smaller pieces.  But good to know for the next time!
