This sale is available online and in-house but please keep certain things in mind: 

1) While our doors are open to the public, if you are exhibiting symptoms of illness or feeling not well then PLEASE do not come into our warehouse. We are a small, family-owned business and our 11 employees depend on this work to provide them with some financial security during this time so please help us keep our doors open by visiting us another time if you are not well.

2) While we are still operating normally, we ask for your patience and consideration during this time as we navigate the unknown waters along with everyone else. We are working with employees who do not feel secure enough to come in and operating on a much smaller level right now but are doing our absolute best to keep our operations open and running until we feel that it is unsafe for them to remain intact. Online orders may take a little longer to be processed and shipping times may be delayed due to those companies slowing down their operations. 

Please feel free to call us at 828-322-9663 or email us at for any questions or concerns! As always, happy woodworking- West Penn Hardwoods

We offer a variety of domestic and exotic woods.


With the cost of lumber rising every year West Penn Hardwoods tries to remain the industry leader in keeping the price as low as possible.


Our quality is second to none. We take a special pride in providing our customers with the highest quality lumber in the United States.


We source our lumber from only licensed and legal mills operating within the laws of the country they are in; many of these mills are operated by local indigenous tribes that help give back to their community as well. We travel year round to each location we purchase exotic wood from to ensure we are completing our due diligence.
