Halflight,
Try National Balsa in Ware, MA (New England). They have triangular stock in balsa/bass/and spruce. Quick service and good prices.
Note that if you plan to attend the Toledo RC Expo on April 6-8th, Nat'l Balsa is an exhibitor and usually has a HUGE stock of balsa and other model wood products for sale at show prices and no shipping.
Regards,

Also if you are using the wood in front of the CG and weight is not going to be a problem. I often use square sticks... Simply because its ten times easier to clamp it in good and have it stay tight in the joint as your glue dries. White glue builder here so having the part stay in place for longer dry times is important.
