An amazing place because it offers an awesome selection of hardwoods and moulding profiles that is really hard to find around here. Also all their products and prices are listed online. You can take your time inspecting each species and be choosy about what piece to take. I don’t love the pricing though - but it’s hard to beat since they have stuff no one else does.

Absolutely wonderful! They have been so helpful in my restoration of a 1910 Shingle Style home. Can’t beat their expertise, selection, price, or willingness to help.
