The McKinney Cotton Mill has stood for more than a century as a piece of history in Collin County. Its grounds have seen numerous business come and go, and hundreds of happy newlyweds. The Mill has seen Collin County families begin, and grow, in its shadow for decades.

Today, KS WoodCraft is proud to announce a collaboration with the Mill on a project to bring customers something truly unique. For a limited number of projects, KS WoodCraft will be salvaging the original McKinney Cotton Mill wood to build custom furniture.

“We’re taking this old, historic wood from The Cotton Mill and creating custom pieces of history that will last a lifetime,” said Ken Schumacher, founder of KS Woodcraft.

KS WoodCraft is celebrating the launch of this collaboration by giving away a six-foot Cotton Mill table through a Facebook contest. Those who wish to enter #CottonMillTable giveaway can visit for full details.

The wood that KS and the Mill have been able to salvage is 150 year old heart pine. It is a dense wood originally used for flooring, and perfect to create an artisanal piece of heirloom furniture.
