Vintage Woodworks was founded in 1978 to reproduce old-fashioned, solid wood, handcrafted millwork. Our small town and rural lifestyles led to this endeavor... reflecting our commitment to the gracious and peaceful surroundings of another time and place.
As word spread, it became obvious that people all over the country were trying to locate a reliable, cost-effective source for items such as ours. Thus, we decided to go “mail order.” Our Plan: sell on a shop-direct basis to keep prices down. Offer superior quality work. Ship promptly. And throw in plenty of old-fashioned value & genuine customer service to boot. We wanted to prove that quality small-town woodworking and fair & honest dealings still make sense... for everyone!

Our History - Part II (in August Newsletter)
Well, it worked... and Vintage grew. Over the years we've added lots of new items. We've helped thousands of wonderful people from all across this great country achieve their own “gracious & peaceful surroundings.” In fact, we're quite positive that Vintage Woodworks' customers are the finest anywhere! Read some of our customer's testimonials to find out how they feel about us.
And so we continue... "Bringing Back Yesterday in Quality and Service", as our Vintage slogan says. Actually, we don't know any other way of doing business. It's truly become a way of life for us, and we love it!
Of course, after all this time in business, we're still 100 years behind the times ...still handcrafting from solid wood ...still more concerned about service than about making a “quick buck” ...still shipping promptly ...and still absolutely guaranteeing your happiness. Surely hope you'll honor us with an order, so we can prove OUR commitment to YOU!

"The items I ordered from you before are wonderful quality and have weathered well. I am adding more window boxes and relieved that you still make these beautiful brackets. Thank you."
