I explained my project to the salesman and he made good suggestions on the different plywoods I could use. That in... itself would have earned them 4 stars, but they didn’t stop there. They broke down the wood to the sizes I needed. Then moved 150 lb. sander out of my truck bed, loaded the plywood, and then put my sander back. Thank You! Even though it’s 2.5 hr. drive for me, I won’t be buying from the big box stores anymore.read more

This place was recommended to me for some project wood, and it did not disappoint. From the kind and competent staff to... the wonderful location made picking out something as simple a board of wood to a enjoyable experience. Top that off with exquisitely crafted furniture and this is a great place.read more

I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for this place. The selection of wood is amazing and their furniture is... beautiful. But what makes me give this place a 5 stars is the amazing customer service from Adam that we received. He helped us out so much with his knowledge, but his caring attitude and empathy for our situation was more than words can describe. I am so thankful for Adam's help.read more

The furniture they offer is quality, priced right and MADE OUT OF ACTUAL WOOD! Hard to believe in this throw away world we live in but it's true. Just stop in you'll love it.read more

The only place on town that I found willing to sell to a DIYer customer who is just getting into woodcraft and... furniture making. Everything else caters to builders, so this is exactly what i was looking for. I had some idea of what I was looking for, but the selection was better than I expected. Wood isn't cheap right now, but prices seemed fair for market conditions. I also was kind of a jerk and came in shortly before closing and staff was still patient and helpful as I struggled to calculate prices by BF for the first time. Thanks for making a daunting experince more easy. Ill be back for sure.read more

Definitely a love hate relationship with this place. Love the fact they always have what I need for work to include... staff that help me get some of the larger items off the rack without complaining. For me it seems like the $400 dollar store every time I go in. I even bought my kitchen cabinets from here.read more

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. If you need hardwood, softwood, plywood and everything in between, I highly... recommend looking here. Better pricing and larger selection than any other woodworking/lumber supplier I have shopped at. They also provide many other services and some great ideas for projects and items for sale on display.read more

My husband and I go to CO Lumber several times a year hunting high quality lumber for woodworking projects. Not only do... they have a wide selection of wood, but they have beautiful craftsman made tables, desks, bars, chairs, etc. Need a ready-to-hang mantle? A live edge slab? You need to come check this place out. The showroom/warehouse is well organized and clean, and the employees are knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. It's nice talking to someone who knows all about the different wood qualities and stain information and doesn't mind taking the time to help you. These folks know their stuff and deserve your business.read more

I am so impressed with the variety of lumber and furniture to be found here. My first visit was to source live edge... slabs to make some shelves. This last visit was for a pair of unfinished stools. While I was there I mentioned a coffee table I'd missed out on buying last year. Erick knew exactly what I was talking about and let me know they had a new shipment.I am pleased with the quality product and customer service, and completely enamored of the new table.read more

They have a nice showroom and decent selection of woods and whatnot, but man the customer service is seriously lacking.... I had to ask so many questions just to get some simple information and of the 3 workers I spoke with, every one of them acted like I was a massive burden. Unfortunately I will not be ordering from them since it all seems like too much of a hassle.read more

We bought two oak counters and two upper shelves to match the others we had in our kitchen. First off they were very... expensive, but we put our trust in Colorado Lumber, after shopping around and ordered them.The only part of the counters and cabinets that are not particle board are the faces. At that not particularly heavy particle board. After we opened them up, inspected them, and installed them, we realized that there was only one half depth particle board shelve for the two 24" deep counter. So we have only one shelf for two counters, and that shelf is only half the depth of the counter, and none for the cabinets up top, which aren't even drilled to take any shelves. In calling back, we were told, that's the way they are supposed to come. Check your kitchen cabinets and see if they don't have a number of full depth shelves. If we had been told that in the first place, we would not have bought from Colorado Lumber, and probably will not buy from them again!read more

Thank you for welcoming me to Colorado Lumber!

I’m new to Colorado Springs and felt so welcome when I stopped by to check out your live-edge lumber selection. It was my first visit, but won’t be the last!

I would also like to let you know what a great employee you have in Adam Wilkins. When I mentioned we’re looking forward to building a Barndominium, Adam took some time to give me a tour of your showroom. I appreciated the time he spent with me so we’d have a go-to resource when that process begins.

Thanks again for your warm welcome!

– Trish C.

A wonderful and large selection of unfinished wood furniture. I really like to come here to browse. I’ve even been able to bring in wood that needs to be cut and it was no problem. The guys are great!

This brief note is to acknowledge the extra effort made by Tony in offering sound advice on securing a hardwood picture frame. My experience is limited and he took extra minutes to explain what I needed to know before assembling the red oak pieces. He also volunteered to make some red oak plugs for me to use when I make my assembly.  That kind of customer service is rare these days. Thank you.

Dear Trevor,
I want to thank you and Wally for working with me and John G. Regarding the re-ordering of my kitchen cabinets back in February. The hickory ones are just beautiful!!! They have totally changed my kitchen. I am very pleased with the outcome of my kitchen and would highly recommend your cabinetry to anyone. In fact, I hope to be back to purchase one of your mirrors when I get my downstairs bathroom fixed. Also, the delivery guys were great!
