Smith Lumber

Sustainably harvesting since 1909

Smith Lumber

Generations of sustainably harvesting

Smith Lumber is nestled at the base of Juniata County’s scenic Shade Mountain.  Running a vintage Frick 01 sawmill, locally-sourced timber provides fine lumber, turning stock, carving blanks, natural edged slabs and more.  Dan Smith is assisted by his son, Nirloy, and parents, Roy and Nancy, although they are mostly retired at this point.

About Us

Our very small team

We are small enough to manage each customer's needs individually. As of 2024, we will be entering a phase of refreshing and rebuilding. Stay tuned for updates on products and services.
