Shepherd Tool & Supply (formerly SRS Tool & Supply) was created in 2007 by Kent Shepherd. Having been in the woodworking industry in Lubbock, Texas all his life, it was a natural move to open a specialty woodworking store. Lubbock really did not have anyone who focused on woodworking, catering to both professionals as well as hobbyists. It is very important to us for you not only to buy the tools, but to have a good understanding of how to use them. Whether you are a brand new beginner or a seasoned veteran, we understand your needs and will always strive to give the best advice and service possible.
Shepherd Woodwork, Inc. was created in 1991 as an offshoot of Shepherd Shutters, Inc., established in the early 60's by Doyle Shepherd, Kent's dad. After years of steady growth, the original building was bursting at the seams and the logical solution at the time was to divide the cabinet door and shutters into two different companies which are both still active today. Kent's son Kyle now manages the door shop while Kent runs the tool store and is actively involved in sales for both businesses. We are now adding a line of custom closet solutions, with the displays for that and the custom raised panel doors at Shepherd Tool & Supply.
It is not often one has the privilege of combining a passion with a profession, but Kent has managed to do that. Never satisfied to remain stagnate, he also does custom one of a kind jewelry boxes, humidors and specialty display boxes for pistols or any other item you have. There is nothing more rewarding than using the natural God-given beauty of wood to create a lasting heirloom.
