About Woodchucks Wood
Woodchucks Wood is based in North-Central Wisconsin....Granton, to be exact. Sales@WoodchucksWood.com is our eMail address.
We are a family operation, in the middle of a large Amish community. We appreciate the Amish, and work with them as much as possible. Many of them are woodworkers, just like us, so we buy most of our lumber from them. We love what we do and we are happy when our customers are satisfied or delighted.
One of the reasons we respect the Amish is because they are responsible and harvest wood sustainably. They use horses and mules to extract trees from the forest which causes less damage to the ground and underbrush. They don't deplete an area of an entire species and are careful to remove old or damaged trees so smaller saplings and new growth can thrive resulting in a healthier forest. Wood is never wasted by the Amish whether it's the sawyer, sawmill, or furniture maker.
Quality & Choice
Like with the Amish, quality is of the utmost importance to us. Everything from precision cuts to color consistency and straightness of grain is scrutinized to ensure the finest boards. Lumber found at your local hardware store or big box hardware retailer has been heavily mechanically processed and is picked over before it makes it to the shelves. At Woodchuck's Wood the lumber goes from the Amish sawyer to your door.
We offer a range of species, widths, and custom cuts. A typical hardware store typically only offers thick 'boring' pine/ basswood/ red oak/ etc up to only 6 or 7" wide. Browse our wide stock...and prepare to be amazed. Wide, rare, boards are hard to come by...until now...because we pass those treasures on to you.
All of our boards come sanded on both sides, with no finish applied.
Leroy, our Amish neighbor to the East, runs a cabinet and door shop and is a pro at finishing. So, if you need your boards pre-finished, with a stain of any type, just ask, and we'll get Leroy to help.
Got an idea or looking for something in particular that you don't see on the website? Don't be afraid to send us an email (Sales@Woodchuckswood.com), we have real people on the other side waiting to answer your questions or create a custom order specific to your needs.
Business is booming and we couldn't be happier! We understand this is a world of immediate gratification, but as a good woodworker knows, some things just take time for proper quality. While we strive to ship a custom cut within a week, we request up to 10 business days to complete and ship an order. Please realize that the Amish and others around this community don't typically work weekends so we have to schedule accordingly.
We acknowledge an order within 24 hours and schedule it into production. Once an order is complete and ready to ship, an email confirmation is generate with a tracking number.
Depending on demand, every order is processed in the order it was received. We offer a handful of exception "rush" orders for an additional charge that helps us pay the additional labor we bring in to expedite the order. Please contact us directly if you have a tight timeframe and we'll try very hard to accommodate your needs.
