The stuff is hard to find. Look at someplace like Constantine’s that
specializes in exotic woods for things like inlay.

Gilmer Wood, Portland, Oregon, carries boxwood. See:

http://www.gilmerwood.com/Gilmerwood%20Stock.htm

They show photographs of the actual pieces in stock, so you can pick
the pieces you like - if they are not already marked ‘sold’.

Best wishes,

Try a search for “boxwood lumber” without the quotes. This will
bring up sites that offer boxwood for use in woodworking.

Hi All, I often find boxwood at my local Rocklear’s woodworker
supply. Also at several other woodworker stores. Most have an online
presence.

Happy Hunting! Mike

Boxwood is great stuff; there’s no other wood I’ve found that holds
detail like it does. It really does act a lot like ivory, although
the color’s different, of course. I had a hard time finding any for
my own carving projects, so I ended up importing some from Turkey.
This turned out to be a monumental hassle, but it did ultimately
arrive, and it’s high-quality stuff. If you want small quantities of
it, I’ll sell it for $20/lb, one pound minimum, plus shipping. It’s
in small logs from about 2" to 5" diameter.
