Local hobby shop drop the ball on my wood order for the Quigley (he's still missing his torso) contest so I'm looking for a good place on the web to order wood. Thanks

Montana, Heinecke is very good, but if you live in western Montana you can get good basswood and butternut from Waterfowl Woodworks in Florence and not pay the shipping cost. Call Terry Porter at 406-273-4219. Or you could come to the Woodcarving Show in Missoula on May 1 &2 and pick up your wood from Terry there.
