The history of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware goes back to 1954, when Norton Rockler started the Minnesota Woodworkers Supply Company in north Minneapolis. It was a small mail-order business with a big aspiration – to become woodworkers’ go-to resource for everything they need to complete their projects.
Since then, we’ve grown into an industry-leading woodworking and hardware source with a nationwide chain of stores and international reach through our catalogs and website. In many ways, a lot has changed. We’ve continuously added to our offerings as woodworking technologies have advanced, and we’re constantly working to bring the industry’s most innovative products, thinking and education to our stores and website.
