First, time buy
Review by  Rick from Texas
Very happy with the quality of their wood. Maple hardwood came in very well packaged. Customer Service was excellent, they reached out by phone, to make sure that I was happy with it. They reached out to make sure to call with any issues I might have with the wood or questions about any other wood products.

This was my first order from Wood Workers Source and the wood exceeded my expectations. The boards were straight and all surfaces planed smooth , which made my cutting board project a cinch.

Review by  Katz from Jamaica Plain. (Boston) Ma. 02130
Never thought Maple looked like this. All the maple I have seen either Rockler, woodcraft, or big box store doesn’t even come any kind of close. Just beautiful wood. Even my wife looked and she was quite impressed. Will make my son a side table. This will be a good surprise. Thanks Much. P. KAT.
