We're Just People Who Think Woodworking Is Fun
. . . And We Sell Hardwoods, Tools & Supplies
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 because he didn't understand the basics.
Thinking there had to be other folks like himself who wanted to buy small amounts of wood with good ol' fashioned friendly service, my dad opened up his own retail lumber shop.
40 years later, we're still here. If you don't know the basics of woodworking, we won't laugh.
We'll help you out.
