I live in Sacramento, Shaele there are wood suppliers in almost every big city, lookup Hardwood and Exotic wood suppliers. If you can't find one, lookup a custom cabinet shop and ask them where they get there hardwoods from and call them, if they are wholesale only and don't sell to the public, tell them what you are trying to do and most of the time they'll be helpful. They can make exceptions and sell to the public if they wanted too. It's not that difficult, let your finders do the walking through the Yellow Pages or Google local supplier of Hardwoods.
