Our Team


Chris’s education and experience give him a knowledge base difficult to surpass in the retail lumber industry.  He spent years in the lumber industry as a millwright before entering retail sales and management for companies renowned for their customer service. He has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry, and a Master’s of Art in Secondary Teaching.  He’s been called everything from a renaissance man to a gosh-darn genius.


Susan grew up in retail, working at a young age at her parents’ surplus hardware store, when hardware still described wood and nails.  She has since spent the last 15 years assisting Chris with everything from home remodels to heirloom tables, and you don’t spend that much time with a genius without learning a thing or two.  In addition, Susan is a beginner wood-turner and proud member of the Great Falls Woodturners’ club.

Thank you to those who appreciate our work and support our local business!


By far the most knowledgeable people in town. They will give you the time of day to help you with ANYTHING wether you show up to browse and talk wood or a paying customer. They have helped me on countless occasions when I was in over my head on a project. They have the best wood selection in town on top of the prices. Plus they have a cute shop dog.


The best place in Great Falls to get unique pieces of wood. They have done a couple of different projects for us and everyone that see’s the finished product is amazed with the beauty the piece. I plan on doing a lot of business with this company.


These guys are amazing! They made a live edge redwood counter top for my Real Estate Brokerage office. One side is 16” the other is 14” long! It is stunning & I can’t wait to show it off during my open house! I would recommend them to anyone looking for that special wood piece! Next stop… I need a conference table boys!
