Welcome to the premier woodworking store in the
Greater Richmond area!
We are the ONLY store dedicated to the woodworking hobbyist and contractor in the area with over 7,500 products to choose from. Our two classrooms are fully equipped for teaching a wide variety of woodworking classes as well as hosting club meetings and vendor training sessions. Take a look at some of the many areas of the store:
Where would a Woodcraft store be without wood? We generally have over 3,000 board feet of domestic and exotic hardwoods - all kiln dried; hundreds of turning blocks and billets, cherry/walnut/oak/birch dowels, flitch and rolled veneers, Baltic and Finnish birch plywood panels, selected exotic slabs and much more. Need a strange wood identified? Bring in a sample.
Finishing can make or break a project and we know it! We have wide selection of finishing products to choose from including stains, dyes, shellacs, lacquers, Polys, solvents, milk paint, Tung/Walnut/Danish oils, waxes and more. Also included are colored felt, flocking and general finishing supplies. Bring in a sample board and we can test colors for you. Want to know more? Take one of our finishing classes.
Finishing Products have Significantly Expanded:
We have significantly expanded our finishing products by adding the Mohawk brand. This will increase color availability and introduce greater repair flexibility. Some of the unique additions include:
Blendal Sticks: Used to add or alter color when repairing or toughing up wood. You can easily blend the colors to accomplish a perfect match. We have all 36 colors.
Fil-Stick Putty Sticks: Without heat or special tools, fill in nicks and scratches or open corner joints. These can be protected with finishes. We have all 62 colors.
Ultra Fine Grainer Markers: A special pen providing the ability to replace grain over repair spots.
Tone Finish Toners: Finely ground, non-fading pigment touch-up sprays. We have all 39 colors.
