As a kid, we remember taking lots of trips to the unfinished wood store with our dad. The furniture was not only affordable, but also allowed us to get creative. To this day, we still love shopping at places like Hoot Judkins. Sure, they're not the most stylish or the most charming stores around, but they usually have just what we need. And we're happy to put in a little extra effort to make them perfect for our home. Plus, we like knowing we're getting real wood pieces, not MDF.
Hoot Judkins has something for every room of your house even the outdoor spaces. Stains, paints and waxes are conveniently available for purchase as well. There are two locations in the Bay Area: 1400 El Camino Real in Millbrae and 1269 Veterans Boulevard in Redwood City. We've only visited the latter, where there are actually a pair of stores one with finished furniture, the other with mostly unfinished.
