Where can I find some wood for a deep window sill?

Hi all, I'm looking for a solid piece of wood (I'm trying to avoid joining two pieces of wood) for a deeper than usual window sill. The size I need is about 37x13 (inches). Tried the local hardware store and Home Depot/Lowes with no luck...

Anyone know of a place to look in the Kansas City area?

Also, what's the common type of wood used on sills? Oak, Poplar, ect...

Check with your local lumber yards. Usually, one will have a door and window shop and should be able to come up with something.

window step

I guess this must be a egress window , use 3/4 in. veneer plywood and tongue & grove a 1/2 x 3/4 in. edge on the reveal side and ends if you want to cover the end grain. You can make the tongue & grove on a router table
