Isn’t it interesting how often we connect with our favorite vendors in places other than our own hometown, even when we live in the same place? I have seen my pals at Stikwood in New York, San Francisco, and Florida; all at various tradeshows. It wasn’t until my most recent visit to KBIS (the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) in Florida when we drew a line in the sand and vowed to tour the Sacramento factory. It was time to learn a little more about this Northern California success story—especially after using the product in some of our favorite #KKDL projects.

Stikwood is the world’s first peel-and-stick reclaimed and sustainable wood planking. Founded in 2012 by Jerry and Laura McCall, the company is the product of a deeply held belief that design can be both beautiful and resourceful.

In the factory—stacks, and stacks of wood ready for processing.

As an innovator in the woodworking industry and a master woodworker himself, Jerry has long understood the pivotal role technology plays in reducing waste and protecting our natural environment. Jerry’s deep appreciation of wood’s distinct ability to transform décor naturally led him to utilize wood planking, traditionally this had been a labor-intensive and costly endeavor. Armed with 30-years’ experience and an ever-present willingness to try new things, Jerry developed the innovative product now known as Stikwood.

Samples in every color imaginable, ready to send out to designers and vendors.

Stikwood products include peel-and-stick wood planking and wall art ideal for the commercial and residential design markets. Made from reclaimed and sustainable woods sourced from various locations in the U.S., Stikwood products boast the natural beauty that only time and the forces of nature can provide. With its remarkably simple peel-and-stick installation process, Stikwood brings the look of wood planking within reach as a fast and cost-effective interior design solution.
