Testimonials:

This was a first time ordering online for me, and I was nervous not having seen the material first hand and not having a prior track record with CR Muterspaw. But I’d say that I’m definitely pleased with the lumber and the whole process of working with you guys. Thanks for the great lumber and it was a pleasure doing business with you.

It has been a real pleasure to deal with Chad. Friendly, helpful, and you can take as long as you need to sort for just that right board. Just finished a cedar chest with wood I got there, and the wood was really super!

Gerry

I have been to and purchased from Muterspaw Lumber. Chad is a very nice and honest man. If you get a chance stop in and see his stock and meet Chad. You won't be disappointed.

J S.

I have stopped in three times and purchased lumber twice. Each time I felt very welcome and encouraged to browse and sort through your stacks until I was satisfied with my selection. I have purchased lumber in various Ohio locations for my projects for more than 40 years. And I must add your price, quality, not to mention properly stored horizontal FLAT lumber is the best to be found.

Sincerely

Stephen
