    Have you tried Capitol City Lumber? Call them to inquire. They're not cheap, but the carry a wide range of products.

    Southern woods lumber in Four Oaks has some Western Red. I recently bought a 1"x6" from them. Not sure about the 8" or the other 2 requirements. You could certainly give them a call to find out. 919-963-2233

    Edited to add: There is also this place. I've never been there, but my contractor used them for a lot of supplies on my recent addition.

    Located near I-40 and Hwy 42. Exit #312 Name alone would lend you to think they had lots of WRC.

    Lowes in Garner stocks Western Red ceder. I bought some last fall to do a box in on HVAC line set. As for grade, it's a pick your own. Some of the other Lowes may also stock some.

    Why are those grades critically important to the appearance of your project?


    Here's Capitol City Lumber in Raleigh. Both are S1S2E.
