About Dunlap Woodcrafts
Dunlap Woodcrafts is a family owned and operated business that has been supplying figured American hardwood lumber to custom woodworkers since 1975.
The business was started by Wayne Dunlap from his basement in Falls Church, Virginia to supply the rapidly growing custom muzzleloading gun and accessory market. By the late 1970's, the business had expanded to supplying woods for custom musical instrument, furniture and cabinet makers. In March of 1987, Dunlap Woodcrafts settled in Chantilly, Virginia.
Today, Dunlap Woodcrafts is supplying substantial quantities of select woods to custom woodworkers worldwide, who are making a wide variety of musical instruments, wood turnings, cabinets furniture, muzzleloading and cartridge firearms and accessories, cutlery, bows, and a variety of folk art. We also prepare custom floors and paneling for installation.
Our specialty is to find and prepare select figured and custom-sawn lumber for our wide variety of customers. Over the years, we have developed a source base that can help us provide select individual boards, whole matched lots, and custom-sawn select whole logs. We have our own dry kiln as well as contract for drying by our suppliers.
As the world becomes more conscientious about our environment, we do our part too. We give second chance to logs that otherwise will be rejected at any sawmill because of bark incursions, worm holes, spalting or even metal. We use band mills whenever possible in an effort to maximize the wood yield from every log. We purchase lumber from sawmills that practice logging from managed forest.
The business has always operated with the philosophy that customer satisfaction is one of our most important products. Today, customer referrals are still a primary source of new customers. Our customer base includes everyone from the individual part-time recreational woodworker to full-scale production operations.
Wayne, Daniel or Daniel Sr. better known as "Seņor", look forward to help you with your wood needs.
