Rockler Woodworking and Hardware
In 1954 my father, Nordy Rockler, started a mail order woodworking supply company in Minneapolis. It was then known as Minnesota Woodworkers Supply Company, and among the products featured in the first catalog were specialty wood veneers and hardware items such as knobs, pulls and table slides. Woodworkers responded positively to having a place where they could always get what they needed. We have been on the web since 1996, and are reaching more woodworkers than ever before! Whether you're a seasoned pro, a home–improvement enthusiast or a craftsperson, we believe you will enjoy browsing our online catalog, getting interesting tips through our email newsletter, and being the first to find out about some exciting new products! We are constantly on the lookout for new ways to make all your projects as fulfilling as they can be.


Looking for Wood?

Why not come and "Take a walk through our woods".
We feature premium domestic and exotic lumber as well as hard-to-find veneers.
