TO THE WOOD SHED?
The big box stores are good at selling plain, run-of-the-mill wood. Our product is different and yet our inventory is large. Imagine a diverse resource of specialty wood in one place.
Off the beaten track, coming here is more an exciting afternoon adventure than a quick stop at the lumber yard.
But it’s a trip worth making.
Give yourself some time to browse.
You’re gonna need it!

The Wood Shed was started in 1990 in Smithville, a small town located in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada.
A personal interest in furniture and hobby woodworking led the owner of The Wood Shed, James Deboer, to begin harvesting his own wooded farm lot. With a keen eye for specialty wood and a sense of what people desired, exotic wood species were soon added to the ever-growing “woodshed” inventory. Over the years the wide-ranging collection grew into a full-fledged business that employs 15 people in customer service and warehouse production.
The Wood Shed moved into their brand new facilities at 2932 Thompson Road in Smithville in 2018. The property includes a modern storefront and separate production areas, with over 40,000 square feet of warehousing, store, and production.
Today, The Wood Shed houses a vast inventory of both domestic and exotic wood, with customers driving from hours away. But, as The Wood Shed continues to grow, the easy-going, self-serve, “let’s-talk-wood” atmosphere remains.
While we’re happy to chat with you online and over the phone, the best way to experience The Wood Shed is to come and see for yourself!
