Need some 1".  Any options other than Wicks or Aircraft Spruce?

Alternate acceptable wood? See AC43-13. My employer recently went to Alaska to see what one of our suppliers had to offer. Boss didn’t even buy a popsicle stick. Getting REALLY scarce

If you have a MacBeath Hardwood supplier, that is where I purchased all my rough cut Sitka Spruce for my Piet.

You might try Edensaw Woods in Port Townsend, WA. Other builders have gotten spruce from them.

If you are going to Oshkosh try Mccormick lumber in Madison, WI.  You can go pick out your lumber and take it or I believe the will ship. Last time I checked it was about $10.00 a board foot.www.mccormicklumber.com

There are lots of other alternatives for the experimenter. Hemlock has very nearly the same bending strength and weight as Sitka spruce and may be available in your region. Douglas fir has been mentioned... it's a bit heavier but is stronger in bending than spruce. Just depends on what you want, how much you're willing to pay, and how hard you're willing to look for it.
