The lumber company I was thinking about is: 

Barney Robinson Hardwoods Lumber Co Inc
2500 E Lancaster Ave
Fort Worth, TX 76103
	(817) 534-8901

They are very friendly. I have even gotten nice small project sized cut offs from their saw area for little more than spare change. Rough, but beautiful wood. 
They are a full service mill, able to produce what ever you need. 
Were the train tracks not in the way, you could walk up the hill from Armand's place to reach it.
