Woburn Woodcraft Celebrates Grand Reopening

The first retail store opened by Woodcraft Supply, one of the nation’s oldest and largest suppliers of quality woodworking tools, supplies and plans, closed its Montvale Avenue location of 46 years on November 19, 2014 to a new, larger building at 185 New Boston Street, on November 20, 2014.  The all new Woburn store is one of more than 70 Woodcraft stores located in major metropolitan areas across the U.S.

Grand Reopening Set for Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015 @ 10:00am – Mayor Scott Galvin will be doing the ribbon cutting honors for the Woburn community.

“We encourage customers to drop by and check out our new store. We are very excited about this new store,” Woburn Woodcraft Manager Tom Duram said. “We will have over 7,600 square feet of space to display woodworking tools, supplies, wood, and for our classroom.  That is 50% more space than our previous location.  Plus we have a much larger parking area for our customers.”

A Grand Reopening Event is scheduled for Feb. 7 and 8, 2015.  “We will have free demos, prize drawings, vendors/reps on site, deals on power tools and more, plus free refreshments, Duram said.  “Also, Phil Lowe, master furniture maker and founder of The Furniture Institute of Massachusetts, will be our special guest.  Examples of his work will be on display in our store gallery through February.”

During the Grand Opening, Boston’s own Tommy MacDonald of the Woodcraft sponsored PBS TV woodworking show, Rough Cut-Woodworking with Tommy Mac will be on hand Saturday, February 7 from 10am to 12:00pm to give out free Rough Cut hats to the first 50 fans.

Woodcraft Founded in Boston

Woodcraft was founded in 1928 when George Eaton and Richard Merrill opened a one-room shop in Boston where they sold new and rebuilt industrial woodworking machinery to professional cabinetmakers and to schools.

After Roger Wells bought Woodcraft, he moved the store to the Montvale Avenue location in 1968. Initially, the catalog business was operated out of the back room until continued growth forced Woodcraft to build a full warehouse/office facility.

In 1987, SBR, Inc., bought Woodcraft. SBR owner Sam Ross was an avid woodworker and a Woodcraft customer.  Over the years Woodcraft has become the industry leader in providing a wide variety of top quality products, educational opportunities and one-on-one guidance to woodworkers of all skill levels.  The company’s more than 20,000 products are sold at retail stores in over 70 major metropolitan areas across the U.S., through two million catalogs distributed annually in all 50 states and 117 countries, and online at Woodcraft.com.  The first smaller sized retail store – Tool Box by Woodcraft – was opened in September in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Woodcraft also offers educational opportunities through classes and demos at the stores, how-to videos and articles online, and project, technique and product features in Woodcraft Magazine.  Woodcraft is a major sponsor for two public television programs, Rough Cut – Woodworking with Tommy Mac, hosted by Tommy MacDonald and produced by WGBH Boston, and The American Woodshop, co-hosted by Scott and Suzy Phillips and produced by WGBU in Bowling Green, Ohio.
