Shopping for Woodworkers
This table of mostly-local vendors of wood, tools, and services may be of interest to you.  Many of the businesses and services listed have been used by our members and are known to provide quality service, but some have been included only because we found them on other lists.  If you have had a particularly good or particularly bad experience with any vendor, let us know.  We can add suppliers you think members should know about.  If a listing needs to be updated — e.g. change of address — please email us at kwoodartisans@gmail.com.

The list leaves out two common sources because it is presumed everyone knows about them.  The first is Lee Valley Tools.  Lee Valley has an international reputation as a go-to vendor for first-class woodworking tools and supplies at fair prices.  If you are unfamiliar with Lee Valley Tools, we invite you visit their website or their physical store at in the RioCan Mall.  The second omission are the big-box chain stores like Home Depot and Rona again, because everyone knows about them.
