I went to Coe's to purchase lumber, stain and hardware for a DIY coffee table I saw on a website. I'm an amateur with little experience in the matter.
The guy working in the lumber section took the time to chose the best looking fir piece that would be appropriate for my table top. He custom cut the lumber for me to my desired specifications.
In the hardware section I was helped to find the right materials and tools for sanding and staining the wood I just purchased and the staff answered my questions to my satisfaction. The store carried the right screws and bolts, glue, painting brushes. Reasonably priced for a neighbourhood hardware store.
Great supportive staff and good advice, my table turned out well.
