No they sell body blanks. Neck blanks. Basically anything you would ever need to make a custom guitar. If they cant get, or dont have what you are looking for, then they probably dont make it.

www.lmii.com is cheaper than stewmac. They don't have all the electronics and hardware options that stewmac does, but what they do have is cheaper.

Depending on your country I have freinds that might be able to help you out too.
Not taking any online orders.

But what type of wood. Mahogany, bubinga, bloodwood, wenge, Goncalo Alves, Rosewood, Ebony, Monkeypod, Honduran rosewood, bocote, wamara, cocobolo??? There are a lot of options. What exactly are you looking for?

I don't really have any "hookups" in the UK. Just your typical websites. http://www.touchstonetonewoods.co.uk is where most luthiers round here buy their wood. If you order from them often enough they give discounts but for the average person you have to pay full retail. I do carry some rosewood, mahogany, maple, and wenge as well as some odds and ends but the only thing I carry in Large amounts is spruce. I'll cut you a deal if you need something that I have.
