I have been working with wood most of my life and enjoy taking natures gifts (trees) from raw material to the highest quality lumber possible.  I have been running this business for years and continue to be amazed by the endless products and possibilities this type of business offers.  Live edge slabs are becoming a focus since the demand seems to be very strong in that area.  Most of the common lumber is well provided for and pricing is very competitive. I am working with a supplier for hardwood flooring. My favorite is White Oak Rift and Quartered 5" or 6" in width Character grade, this is superb for price, value and wow factor. If you are remodeling or building new give me a call and compare pricing. I am selling from two locations, the second is an industrial complex located in West Chicago carrying the larger and thick boards. Since there are a few of us selling lumber there, there is a larger selection to pick from. We are selling by appointment currently.

Customer stories:

"One large Sugar Maple was a childhood climbing tree for three young girls.  The tree needed to come down and the parents decided to have me mill the tree so they could make cradles for their girls future babies."

 "A small church had a stand of Ash trees being removed for an addition to the church.  The architect wanted to use Bamboo flooring as it is supposedly considered a green building product.  One of the parishioners suggested using the Ash trees from their own property for the Sanctuary flooring.  What could be greener than that?  We milled the trees, dried the lumber and created a beautiful Ash floor.
