    woodworking shops in Memphis, TN.

    Planning on visiting Memphis this weekend. I have heard there are some woodworking shops in that area, can someone give me names and preferrably telephone numbers/URL etc.

    HI I knew of one called "That Wood Joint" but rumor is that they went out of business.

    The other one that I know about is called The Woodwork Shop.

    IF you go let me know what sort of wood supply they have.

    There is another one but I cant rememebr the name.

    Rob...I live about 2 hours south of Memphis.

    Rob, I lived in Memphis from Jun 98 through Jan 01, but I wasn't into woodworking at that time. I did a google search and found another name colco. I am mostly interested in shops that carry handtools, lumber I can acquire locally.

    Refer to the following URL http://people.memphis.edu/~jthieme/woodworking.html

    Colco lumber is worth a visit...they have tools and lumber. They have a good selection of domestic and exotic lumber, and a nice selection of tools.

    That Wood Joint has been reported by other boards as out of business. They lost their lease and were forced to move, then couldn't make it after the move. Too bad, they had a good selection of wood, comparable to Colco's.

    The Woodwork Shop has tools and some lumber, but not nearly as much as Colco's.

    That's about it for woodworking in MEM, at least at far as I know.
