Rockler is a great store with quality products, and most importantly has experienced sales people who know the craft and the products. A nice story about a solid Minnesota company!

Rockler is a candy store for woodworkers! What is not stated in the article is they are innovators of exclusive product designed solely for woodworkers. A great place to visit for anyone interested in woodworking.

God bless Rockler, and all who say her name. Products they sell you cannot find anywhere else locally, I would be lost without them.

My great-grandfather and grandfather worked with wood making some pretty cool things. Now it is my time to see what I can do. I have ordered several things from Rockler and they have helped me out. Trust me, I will soon be going to this new store to see how things work out.

That "Candy store for woodworkers line" sounds like Rockler asked employees to make some comments about this article. I used to hear that line all the time when I worked there. I had to leave because it bothered me that that they sold inferior products at very high prices. It really bothered my conscience to be a part of that.

I have used Rockler for years and I'm usually quite happy. The prices are out of this world on items such as hinges though. A serous buyer can easily find many items for a third the price on line. But weekend tinkerers are fine here.
