We're Just People Who Think Woodworking Is Fun

Back in 1978 my dad started Woodworkers Source because he had a really lousy experience trying to buy some wood.

All he wanted was a couple of boards for his first jewelry box project - but the local hardwood dealer literally laughed at him.

Thinking there had to be other folks like him who wanted to buy small amounts of wood with good ol' fashioned friendly service, he opened up his own retail lumber shop.

And here we are today.
