Keith Stephens

“Hi, I’m Keith Stephens. I founded Woodworkers Source in 1978.  The business grew from my favorite pastime activity -- woodworking.   Boxes, furniture, and turnings are my favorite items.  I search the world for wood and oversee our operations.  Over the years I have accumulated a wood sample collection of about 1500 different wood species.  This collection is on display in our conference room.  If you have a special need, or if I can help in any way just ask for me.  Our goal is simple—“Help our customers be successful in their woodworking projects.”

Betty Stephens

“Hello, my name is Betty Stephens.  I have been active in Woodworkers Source since the beginning. These days I am responsible for accounts receivable and payable.  I will be happy to help you with your questions or refer you to one of our experts".

Mark Stephens

Mark Stephens

Mark took over the mail order department in 2001.  At the time, he handled all calls, emails, faxes, and letters by himself and with just one employee handling the selecting, packaging and shipping.  Eventually, Mark expanded the program to include three full-time employees and two part-time.

Today, Mark takes care of the marketing and advertising for the company, and still helps mail order customers.
