Business Description
Unfinished Business Former Teacher Bruce Boyle Now Sells Furniture to the Do-It-Yourself Crowd For 10 years, until last year, Bruce Boyle was a history teacher at James Wood High School. But his exodus from education began when he and his wife, Lee Anne, had their first child, Stephen, six years ago and made a decision not to use day care. So Lee Anne opted to quit her full-time job as a teacher at Indian Hollow Elementary School. The loss of a second income put a big financial strain on the Boyle household, forcing Bruce to work odd jobs and in the summer to supplement his teacher's salary. "I delivered pizzas, was an electrician's helper, mowed grass, and did some building, " he recalled. "In fact, in 1992, I counted up that I only had seven days off, including Christmas out of the whole 365 in the year." First, of course, there was the matter of picking a business. The first venture considered was a convenience store. The keeper, finally, was idea No. 3: a store selling "unfinished furniture, " where buyers take the bare wood products and do the staining and varnishing at home. Unfinished furniture was a product the Boyles already liked, having purchased an unfinished bedroom set in 1988. So in August of last year Bruce and Lee Anne Boyle, co-proprietors, opened the "Solid Woods" unfinished furniture store in Winchester's Pleasant Valley Marketplace, next to Kroger. The biggest reason most people shop for unfinished furniture, Boyle said, is that do-it-yourselfers can get a significant price break.

Simply an amazing place to buy custom/semi custom furniture. Great quality, solid wood stuff. This is all the real deal; things that you'll have for decades. Great selection and very knowledgeable staff. I have bought quite a few pieces here and do not hesitate to recommend it!




I just purchased a beautiful oak lectern/podium. They had the best price, the most beautiful solid oak craftsmanship, and a fabulous finishing job. I totally love the selection and the solid wood craftsmanship. Great experience!!!!



Poor customer service

I ordered a bed for my son birthday (way in advance). I was told it would come in with no problem. Weeks later I stopped by the store and I was told it was on back order, the store owner still promised me the bed would still be here in time. I called the store the day after I was promised it would be in and was told it was still on back order and it would not be here in time for the birthday. At this point since they could not deliver the product I order, I asked if there would be a discount. The owner spoke sharply with me and told me he would like to cancel the entire order. What kind of customer service is this?
