Wm. H. Polley Woodworking & Lumber
is a small family owned hardwood lumber business located in the
foothills of the Pocono Mountains serving customers throughout
Northeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and up through
New England. Its founder "Bill" Polley, created the

the lumber myself. My extensive experience in woodworking has
helped me to better understand the needs of the woodworker in
obtaining the type of lumber desired for his or her special project."
"Over the past five years, I
have curtailed my woodworking projects in order to supply my fellow
woodworkers and small shop owners with quality lumber at a reasonable
price. I still saw all the lumber myself, over 60 million board
feet in the last 35 years, either on my own bandsaw sawmill or
on a circular mill that I manage."
