Shoe’s Lumber Report

WELCOME AND THANKS FOR VISITING…

I’ll start with a quick introduction of myself and what Shoe’s Lumber Report is all about. My name is Jim Schumacher, and my career in the Lumber and Building Materials Industry has spanned more than three decades. I have spent most of my tenure in Sales and Sales Management, where I have focused on serving and providing solutions to contractors and production builders in the Puget Sound region of Western Washington.

What is Shoe’s Lumber Report? Great question. Shoe’s Lumber Report was created more than 27 years ago when I was looking to solve an issue I was dealing with as an Outside Sales Representative. In the mid-1990s, during the era of newspapers, fax machines, and long before the internet and emails became mainstream, I struggled to keep my prospects and clients abreast of the commodity fluctuations in the lumber and panel market. After attending a sales conference, I came up with the idea of writing and emailing out a free weekly lumber report to keep my clients, prospects, coworkers, and industry associates abreast of the lumber market changes. Hence… Shoe’s Lumber Report was born.

Shoe’s Lumber Report is my straightforward approach to sharing commodity lumber and panel market updates with my subscribers. My transparent system of communicating the data with graphs and text is my way of telling a story each week. For confidentiality, I do not show actual prices, as copyright infringements come into play with some of the data. I share verifiable percentage changes week-in and week-out that clearly and concisely provide my readers with a solid understanding of the lumber market’s ebbs and flows.

Are you a contractor, builder, or developer with projects impacted by fluctuating commodity lumber and panel prices? If that is the case, Shoe’s Lumber Report is an excellent, very cost-effective solution to help you stay on top of the fluctuating commodity lumber and panel market. I encourage you to subscribe to Shoe’s Lumber Report. My goal is simple: Provide my readers with accurate and timely information at a great value. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today to begin being kept up to date in the place I like to call: “The Wonderful World of Wood.” Enjoy…
