Wood Lumber

Unique Quality Lumber Wood at its Finest 

One of A Kind Exotic Lumber Wood
The Lumber Shack holds pride in the unique quality lumber wood we assemble and create for our customers. Whether you are looking for red cedar live edge lumber for solid wood cabinetry or something more unique like black walnut bookmatched slabs for nice wood table top, we have a huge variety of quality lumber to fit any woodcraft project.

Our quality lumber comes from the sought after hard working forests of the Midwest, central Iowa timbers, as well as salvaged trees locally harvested by our tree expert woodsmen.

One of the most attractive attributes of quality lumber is the eye-popping contrast of wood colors. To maximize the attractive lumber pieces raw texture we kiln dry and carefully handle each piece of lumber from the moment we cut the tree to the time we package and send it to you. The Lumber Shack lumber storage facility is never steamed and kept dry to preserve the quality of the wood from color to texture.

We offer our lumber in various sizes to help fit and wood project whether you are looking for a small wood slab for a coffee table or a large live edge slab for an office table. If you are purchasing a Table Top Set or any other specialty Live Edge "Center Piece" Slab from us, be sure to add the surrounding lumber from our collection to get as close to color-matched pieces as you can. Walnut looks different from all over the country and you can be sure our Midwest Walnut is second to none!

Black Walnut Lumber Wood

Black Walnut lumber wood is a very heavy and is a strong wood defined by its rich deep browns and beautiful raw figure. Black walnut lumber has a natural color variation ranging from dark to lighter browns with white sapwood. Walnut has a beautiful grain structure and is much sought after. We offer our Walnut Lumber with sapwood as well as sap free. Black Walnut lumber has an increasingly high demand and to keep up with our customers we add hundreds of new black walnut wood lumber each week. Always remember that every piece of lumber whether black walnut, sycamore, or any type of wood is one of a kind. If you see a piece of lumber and decide to get it later it may already be sold by the time you check back!
