Winter Woods Lumber

Winter Woods is a division of Northern Sun Woodworks located in Munising Michigan. We are tucked away in the forest just a few miles south of cold, clear Lake Superior. Our shop manufactures premium staircases and architectural millwork. Like you, we depend on figured wood for the projects we make. Like most woodworkers we have been disappointed in the quality of wood available. The best logs go to the export market where foreign buyers pay as much as $30 a board foot. This leaves the domestic market starved for quality stock. We discovered the only way to find good quality material is to track down lumber the export buyers miss. Over the years our sources of supply have outgrown the capacity of our shop so hence Winter Woods was born.

How does Winter Woods differ from other mail order lumber services? For starters, I have been a full time woodworker since 1969. We know wood and how it is used, we talk the language, so to speak. Then we are a small company offering a very personalized service, we hand pick every board and buy only the best available so we can send you the quality material your project deserves.



Available in Birdseye Maple, Curly Soft (Tiger Maple), Curly Yellow Birch, and our exclusive Captured Bark Rustic Maple.
