Re: Feedback for stair tread replacement
Local availability, local preference, hard to say. All species are not always available in all areas or from all suppliers. Shop around to other suppliers and see what they've got. Don't forget to check with lumber suppliers who cater to woodworkers. If they don't have what you need, they may be able to get it. Talk to a stair builder, they may be able to custom mill the materials you desire.
