A frequently asked question by beginner crafters is “Where do you find unfinished wood rounds?”. If you’re wanting to make a decorative wooden sign for your home, below I share some options for different unfinished wood rounds, and where to find them.
What is a wood round?
A wood round is an unfinished, circle-shaped piece of wood used in crafting and furniture making. The wood rounds I craft with are made of pine boards finger jointed and glued together.
Wood round options and where to buy
I bought most of my unfinished wood rounds (pic above) at Menards for less than $8 each. I’ve checked Home Depot, but the store near me never seem to have them in stock. The wood rounds I have been using are 12″ in diameter and 1″ thick, weighing about 2 lbs. They’re hefty, which is what I wanted, because I want my buyers to receive a quality piece that won’t easily blow away or break.
I have also bought wood rounds at Lowes. They are a little thinner at 1/2″ thick, and don’t have the nice smoothed edge like the version at Menards. I do like that the Lowes website tells you exactly how many your store has, and what aisle and bin they can be found in, like this:
Here is what the Lowes version looks like (after I found it precisely where the website said it would be!):

To purchase similar ones online, you can get a 2-pack of 8″ diameter wood rounds for about the same price. They’re 4″ smaller and only .6″ thick, but still a good option.
