The Woodshed in Tyler Texas sells unfinished and finished real wood furniture plus custom made pieces which can be stained to order. They specialize in matching items with furniture you already own and in providing corner furniture or pieces that you need to fit your home in a special way. They boast in having every type of furniture for every room of the home.

We came across the Woodshed after admiring a beautiful solid wood dining room table belonging to friends. They told us that they had stained and finished it themselves and paid less doing it that way. We were intrigued and went to visit the store ourselves. The furniture at the Woodshed instantly impressed us. We were keen to purchase bedroom furniture to match our bed but could only afford to buy them one piece at a time over a period of 6 months. The staff at the Woodshed matched the color for us and kept the mixture on record so that when we went to re-order they could stain the remaining items the same color. We had them stain and finish each piece for us as I was concerned that I wouldn’t do such a good job as the ‘experts’ We have been delighted with the set.

At a later date we chose a bookshelf and TV cabinet with shaped glass doors. There were so many designs to chose from it was almost overwhelming but we found just what we wanted in the end. The price was pretty reasonable – comparable to Ashley Furniture, but paying for them to be stained was an extra expense. We were still very pleased to have solid custom furniture at an affordable price. One of the doors of the TV cabinet has since slipped a little in its hinges but I think that on the whole, the furniture will last well and probably outlive us.

I liked the personal attention we received at the Woodshed and the unhurried advice from the staff. They seemed to empathize with my indecision and were very helpful. Our children were happy going to the store because they have a lego table and dolls house for kids to play with. Customer care is important here. One negative point is that they don’t deliver. They do know a ‘man with a van’ who apparently provides a reliable service for a fee but we chose instead to borrow a truck and carefully transport it ourselves. Luckily it arrived undamaged and now has pride of place in our home.

If you are looking for wooden furniture in Tyler Texas I would definitely check out the Woodshed. They do have some beautiful things and it is great to be able to customize items to suit your existing home décor.
