Our History

Wes Bender, the owner of The Old Wood Store got his start from Bender Building, a company dedicated to helping clients attain their remodeling and construction goals. During his years with Bender Building, he developed a highly versatile skill set in design, construction, and installation for a variety of projects in Will County, IL.

You can think of The Old Wood Store as an extension of Bender Building. His clients began to ask for custom reclaimed barndoors and that ultimately led to the beginning of The Old Wood Store. Wes and his wife Mariah established a beautiful, quaint little store in the heart of downtown Lockport, IL. You will find a variety of unique wood pieces, home decor and much more. They created a store catered to the do-it-yourselfers, contractor and designers who can walk in and purchase wood for their projects.
