New Jersey Woodworking Resources

Before searching for your hardwood lumber in New Jersey, it’s worth taking a look at local guilds and woodworking clubs. These are great resources that often have discounts (for members) at key suppliers.

Featured New Jersey Wood

Featured Hardwood

The Northern Red Oak is both the state tree of New Jersey and one of my picks for hardwood lumber in New Jersey. 

While red oak is an easy wood to turn into both cabinets and furniture, if you haven’t worked with this hardwood before just remember:

  • Red oak tends to splinter during crosscuts
  • Kiln drying is a must as the grain will absorb moisture readily
  • And oak will stain readily and almost always without blotching
