Tom Coy

My experience with Fine Craftsman Lumber was excellent! In my case, I was just looking for 4 hard maple pieces ( 1.5″x14″x14.5″) and delivered within a week and they were exactly what I had been looking for about a month! 


This was my first time buying from Fine Craftsman Lumber and I was not disappointed! The board came well packaged with no damage. The board was perfect, 100% usable, beautiful grain and super finish. I cannot wait to begin the project. I will definitely buy from them again!

Thank you for all the help. You were right, the curly maple is perfect for my projects.  It really was a pleasant experience to be able to select from such a quantity of beautiful lumber.
