Welcome to Garreson Lumber!
We’re generally open Monday through Saturday, but please call before you come. We make frequent deliveries and can’t always be here.
If you order ahead, you can back up to the loading door and be heading home within minutes. If you prefer, you can select your own wood with some restrictions, or take advantage of my 30+ years of experience. I’ve selected lumber for thousands of projects for customers across the USA.
Quality—I start with the best lumber I can find, purchasing only from established, reputable mills that understand the needs of cabinetmakers.
Extended Hours—I offer evening and Saturday availability. Woodworkers lead busy lives. If you can’t get here before 5:00 PM, or even if you can’t make it till 8:00 PM, call and I’ll wait for you, even if you only need one or two boards.
Size Selection—I’ve has selected lumber for thousands of projects locally and nationally, shipping them to most of the fifty states and to servicemen overseas. I have a lot of experience. You may want to help sort out your own lumber. That’s okay, too.
Delivery on Smaller Orders—We ship lumber via FedEx Ground and the post office, and do limited deliveries within 100 miles of our shop. Browse through our products and services, prices and discounts. You’ll see some items that you may not find elsewhere. We are conveniently located one mile from Interstate 86 off Exit 35. For directions, click here.
Meet Special Needs—I’ve sorted poplar by density for a paddle manufacturer, straight-grained wood for steam bending, and helped many other users with special needs. Whatever you’re looking for—ask!
Advising Consumers—People often call looking for products and services offered by my customers. I am happy to refer them to you. The more business you have, the more I have. You already know that advertising is expensive. Word of mouth is not only the best advertising, it’s the cheapest.
Save Woodworker’s Money—my prices are consistently lower than most of my competitors’. I offer quantity discounts for smaller quantities than most wholesalers. I can sometimes suggest less expensive alternatives for your projects. Ash may work as well as oak, for example, or red maple might replace hard maple. We offer lower grades of lumber and short lengths for a reduced price. Many people like knots and streaks of color in their furniture or floors. Others trim out clear cuttings for projects requiring shorter lengths. Either way, you buy more lumber for a lower price.
Custom Drying—if you got a great deal on some green lumber or sawed your own on a portable mill, it needs to be kiln dried. I used to have bad experiences with big companies who tossed my lumber in with whatever they were drying at the time. That’s why I built two kilns. I treat your lumber like it’s mine.
I want to help professional woodworkers make more money, and help weekend woodworkers save money. When you are successful, I am successful. That’s my job.
