Woodchucks: The Help You Need to Create Your Own Woodworking Masterpiece

Tuesday, October 31st, 2023 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Have you ever wanted to create something that’s personal for you or a friend or relative, but you either don’t know what to make, or you lack the skills and equipment to actually do it?  There is a fun solution.   It’s called Woodchucks, a new local, husband and wife-owned DIY woodworking design studio located in Maryville’s Foothills Mall. Think of it as a woodworking studio with a fun twist – they help you create and actually make the item you want!

Recently, we had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Sheila Smith, one of the owners of Woodchucks. Make sure to check them out next time you’re in the area!

Mountain Views: Woodchucks has a very different business model, particularly when you compare it to other similar studios. What can customers expect when they make their first appointment?

Sheila Smith: Well, first of all, as the name implies, we’re a Do-It-Yourself woodworking shop, and that applies to every aspect of what we do here. So, when you go to our website, you first choose what kind of project you want to work on. We’ve got a lot of different kinds of projects you can select from, and we’re happy to do custom work as well if that’s what you need. We also offer classes if you’d like to build up more of these skills for yourself.

Once you’ve selected exactly what you want, we’ll work with you on the design process. Even if you’re not familiar with woodworking or design, we want to make sure you get exactly what you want. Once you’re satisfied with the design, then we schedule a time for you to come in and make it in the store.

When your project is done, you get to say you did all of it. It was your idea, and you’re the one that did all the hard work to make it a reality. But we’re not just putting all of this on you. We’re providing the materials, giving you instructions and guidance, and so on. Whatever you need that you can’t get anywhere else, that’s what we’re here to provide.

MV: That sounds like a lot of fun! Can you also accommodate groups?

Sheila: Absolutely!  We love having groups and parties. Kids especially have a great time. We’ve also had date nights, girls’ nights, and so on. If you can name it, we’ve probably done it. In addition, we can come to your group, with all supplies in tow!

MV: Do your customers need to be good at woodworking?

Sheila: Absolutely not. It can help, of course, but we provide plenty of help and instruction to our customers that are just learning the ropes.

Well, there you have it! A woodworking and design studio fun for all ages, where you can make nearly anything you can imagine. Be sure to book your appointment today at www.woodchuckstn.com.

And remember, whatever you need that you can’t get anywhere else, that’s what Woodchucks is here to provide.
