The dream began when a group of Champaign-Urbana area woodworkers found their home workshops just weren't large enough for the equipment they wanted to use. They also wished they had access to the latest tools and accessories, somewhere to store projects in progress and a place to interact with fellow enthusiasts.
Now their mutual dream has come true.
CU Woodshop Supply, a retail store offering the latest woodworking tools, accessories and supplies, along with The DreamShop, a member-operated woodworking shop at 1401 Parkland Court in Champaign, offer local woodworkers an opportunity to support their hobby while perfecting their skills.
