I cannot give you the information on who their supplier is but if you really need the tip, let me know and I'll call my yard.  Their source might be in Mi., but services distributors here.  I could order the cedar EXACTLY the dimen I needed.

I'm in NW Oh.  We just did a search here for another thread about 1-1/2x3/4 Oak.  The poster was from Cinci and needed a source.  I used Thomasnet to find southern ohio lumber dealers.  Got a good list.  You might try a search of Thamasnet.
