All about Kingma Lumber Masters

Kingma Lumber Masters came into being in 2018. Zach Kingma, our Business Manager and Lead Woodworker, began this journey working from his parents shed with under 150 board feet of lumber “in stock”. His mission was, and is, to provide quality and affordable wood for his own projects and friends and family. In 2019, his father, Sid Kingma, and brother Josh Kingma joined the business as partners to help manage the company's growth. After running the business from the family’s garage for 18 months, we finally moved to our current 1400 sqft location in 2020, and most recently moved to an even larger space. Over the years, we have grown immensely. Today, we have an excess of 8000 board feet of wood as well as epoxy, table legs, and other woodworking materials and support. We currently have a team of 4 people working on custom projects such as tables, doors, and laser/CNC projects to meet your unique needs.

Our Mission

At Kingma Lumber Masters, our mission is to provide an alternative to the big box stores and offer a more personal customer experience when purchasing wood supplies. We do our best to keep lower prices and pass on those savings to our customers.

We are very environmentally conscious. The bulk of our wood slab inventory comes from sustainable harvesting. This includes trees that are harvested because of becoming a safety concern for their owners. Often we are aware of the trees’ history and can pass along that story to you as it becomes your furniture piece.

Giving Back to the Community

While we have been operating as a business, we have planted over 3800 trees in British Columbia and South America, with the majority being in British Columbia. We do this in partnership with One Tree Planted and plant these trees with a portion of every sale we make. When we build a furniture item, such as a table, we plant 10 trees. By doing so we give back to the sustainability of our industry and keep our planet healthy.

As a responsible business, we also love to give back to our local community. We have worked with non-profit organizations such as Little Warriors, a Canadian National company that focuses on the awareness, prevention, and treatment of child sexual abuse.

We have also donated tables, cutting boards, and signs to a variety of silent auctions around the city of Edmonton for registered charities to use in their fundraising activities.

Without Sid, Kingma Lumber Masters probably wouldn’t be around. In 2017 Sid pushed Zach to find some suppliers of his own for his projects, and the rest is history.
