Woodcraft of Nashville use to stock a lot of different type hardwoods. I have not been in that store in a while so they may not have lumber any longer. They are actually located in Franklin. Look up woodcraft.com and look for the Nashville store.

They also have a store in Chattanooga over around Eastgate mall. Maybe not where I'd go to buy wood, but it will be ready to use without jointing or planeing.

I was at the Franklin store a few weeks back and browsed their wood pile. They had a pretty wide variety of different wood species but not much depth in any. I was looking for any kind of maple but their selection didn't attract me. If your interest is in the glamour varieties, that's a good place to go. You can expect to see some pretty hefty prices but you'd expect that under the circumstances that they provide it.
I find them a good source for some wood items -- such as the South and Central American varieties -- and often get specialty plywood there. I use 1/16th inch plywood often and purchased a 12 x 24 inch slab when I was there this time. Under those circumstances you just get it where you can and they always have it on hand.
Besides, I enjoy just browsing their aisles to see what's new and what I can find that I feel needs a new home. I've rescued some pretty interesting tools [some I use and some are decorations :oops: ] at that store. :roll:
