About WDI/ Contact

A New Look!

Thank you for visiting WDI on the web! We have recently updated and expanded our web presence and would like to direct you to our updated website at: www.wdicustomwood.com. Rest assured, all the information on this site is still accurate, but we now offer more information and more recent examples of our work on our new site. We could have sent you there automatically, but we want to reassure you we are not sending you on a web wild goose chase. Our new website will more quickly bring you to the information you require. It is divided into three separate areas, aligning more closely with our three business groups.

This page will be removed in the near future. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 651-464-6190 or 1-800-899-4265.
