Every month we feature two woods, one domestic and one exotic, usually at 25% off or more! We bring in fresh, new stock so the supply is at its very best, too. Plus we have several other special lumber & wood buys you'll find right here.

When I decided it was finally time to get a small-ish cabinet for organizing my archives of our print promotional materials, I drew a quick stick-figure thing of some cubbies and asked Thad – an employee at our Tempe store – to build it for me.
A week later, he called and said it was finished and ready to be picked up.
Knowing what I told him, and knowing how pathetic my drawing was, and knowing my criteria (“Ummm, I need a thing that holds some stuff . . “), I expected something made of Baltic Birch or maybe just MDF.
You know, something utilitarian; it just made sense to me.
Thad didn’t quite understand my expectations. He built a fine piece of furniture instead. And there’s a good reason for it – building fine furniture is just his style.
How he deduced this fine cabinet from my rudimentary sanskrit will remain a mystery.
Check out his fine projects. Thad is actually just a part-time employee for Woodworkers Source. He’s busy at Arizona State working on a degree in Design Management. It looks like he’s got a long career of building cool stuff ahead of him.
