About us




Let me share a little bit about who we are

North Forest Woodworking, LLC was established in 2023.  We are sourcing trees from our local area, we have our own sawmill and kiln to mill and dry the wood. We are now ready to start creating individual, custom and  unique wood products for you! We also are offering raw hardwoods such as cherry, red oak, white oak, walnut and hickory, if your interested in purchasing a piece for your own projects!  Follow me on Facebook to keep currrent on the exciting happenings here at North Forest Woodworking.


I am Jim Zielke, Owner of North Forest Woodworking.  After many years in the construction industry, I’m slowing down a bit (not really, people call it semi-retired), but I still work about 40 hours a week in my new woodshop and sawmill/kiln area!  I’m not ready to retire. I love being busy, being creative and I love wood! I’m getting geared up to make some really neat wood projects just for you! 

Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ.  It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.  And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
