Staff Find: Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods

Sal Vaglica, Editorial Assistant

Why I love it: The Baird Brothers mill, in Canfield, Ohio, stocks 17 species of wood in 100-plus profiles. Everything's available at their online store, so you don't have to traipse around lumberyards and big-box stores looking for what you need.
What I scored: Extra-tall 7½-inch cherry baseboard (shown above, left), for about $4.97 per linear foot, that would have been a special order—and a long wait—at any of my local dealers.
Word to the wise: If you see something really special in the pages of TOH, send Baird a photo. They'll custom-match anything from a five-panel interior door or Federal-style mantel to an elaborately built-up window casing. And in about two weeks UPS will be at your door with your woodwork in hand; Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods
