Welcome to Jackel Enterprises
We will be closed Easter weekend: April 19-20
Reopening Monday April 21

It is our intent to present you with an accurate representation of who we are and what we do. I started this company in 1991 after 16 years of making Mountain Dulcimers. That experience enriched my appreciation for fine wood and woodworking.

It was my dream to create a lumber yard that supplied quality wood for fair value. Starting out with a phone and pickup truck, I have logged (no pun intended) thousands of miles, connected with hundreds of woodworkers, visited numerous mills large and small, toured logging camps in the outback, and invested my life into this enterprise that you see before you.

Tour these pages to see what this actually encompasses. We look forward to your call or visit
and hope to continue providing the best material and service possible.
