With help from our experts at Fisher Lumber, we can guide you in the right direction for your wood projects.

Safety should always be a priority, and knowing how to handle wood and tools properly is included in that. For any wood project, proper handling of timber will prevent injury and keep you from wasting time. 

Choosing Your Wood

Fisher Lumber offers the best wood for your projects. Consider our composite, hardwood, and softwood options for your next DIY project. Different types of wood require different care and maintenance materials. Talk with us about your plans, and we will advise you on the best tools and materials for them. If you are looking for durable wood for an outdoor deck, consider composite lumber over natural lumber. Our store offers excellent options for stainings, paints, and protective sprays. 

Using The Right Tools

It may seem straightforward to hammer a nail down, but the proper technique will keep your project looking flawless and keep you safe from injury. Hard and steady hammering will get the job done seamlessly and avoid bent or crooked nails. Slow and steady wins the race. The online catalog at Fisher Lumber offers several types of materials from reputable brands, including STANLEY hardware. Other vital tools you may need that we offer are levelers, wood glue, and more! Stock up before your project to ensure you don’t need last-minute purchases.

Long-term Maintenance and Replacements

There are few things more aggravating than discovering your wood was not appropriately protected, and after a harsh wet season, your deck is soggy and will need to be replaced. Long-lasting DIY projects are challenging but not impossible. With help from our experts at Fisher Lumber, we can guide you in the right direction for your wood projects. Specific wood types need special stainings or varnish that you may not easily find but are dutifully provided by Fisher Lumber. Our timber delivery service works within a 30-mile radius of our store, including Washington, DC, Maryland, and parts of Northern Virginia. If you need a replacement stack of wood, we are your fastest option.
