Re: Sourcing approriate lumber for strip ceiling
You're close enough to Ft. Lauderdale to try Constantines Wood Center - Woodworking Supplies and Tools - Fort Lauderdale, FL
they are a woodworking shop that stock veneers and lumber for cabinetry and other fine woodworking trades. I know them from their previous location in the Bronx, NY.
Among other great resources, they sell a "veneer sampler" kit with something like 50 slices of labeled veneers in it. It is a dangerous kit, it exposes you to the lust for many fine and exotic wood that can be had.(G)
If they don't have what you need, they'll certainly be able to tell you if there's any local source for it. Craftsmen, not clerks.
