Where to buy chunks of cherry wood.

I am trying to get my hands on some cherry wood here in the Arkansas area. Can anyone tell me the best place to find cherry wood (not chips) online or in the state? What would a decent price be? My research online has not provided much so i am looking for those companies that may not be as visible and carry a great product for a great price. Thanks everyone.

    I agree that Home Depot probably has them, and if not Amazon certainly does.  However, if you are interested a smaller, independent vendor, I've been very happy with the couple of products I've used from http://www.mainegrillingwoods.com/; in addition to the standard wood types that you'll be likely to find at any big box store, they also have some that I haven't seen too often, like Alder, Sugar Maple, Olive or Beechnut.

    The Ace Hardware near me carries cherry wood chunks along with an overall great selection  of wood.  I know Ace varies by area, but you might give them a try.

  • Thanks for the feedback guys. I was looking at some other areas other than big box and amazon to see if anyone had better products etc. I will check on the sites you guys have provided. Again, thank you.

    I just cut down about 15 mature cherry trees. Shipping would be killer from here though.
