WunderWoods Custom Hardwoods
The tour begins at 12:30 PM on Saturday, April 23, 2022, and will be hosted by Scott Wunder. Wunderwoods is located on the river road in St. Charles north of the Family Arena.
WunderWoods produces custom hardwood lumber, slabs, and woodworking and sells kiln-dried, air-dried, and green lumber products made from locally salvaged logs. They build custom wine cellars, built-ins and other furniture. Most of the urban logs that they use come from tree service companies, with the balance coming from construction sites. WunderWoods started out as a hobby, and then grew into a full-time business.
To make the most of urban wood, the focus needs to be at the initial point of decision for the guy with a chainsaw in his hand. The best tree guys take the time to call and do a little extra work to make sure Wunderwoods has a chance to mill the logs.
Their typical customer is a high-end buyer looking for a unique product. Currently, slabs are their best selling product, followed by rustic lumber. The way Wunderwoods reaches its customers is by making a high-end, top-quality product. These products tell a feel-good story by promoting the beauty of the urban wood resources that are out there. Wunderwoods tells that story with its products, by word of mouth and through its blog and website.
