Hearne Hardwoods Inc is not your typical sawmill or lumberyard. We are a specialty lumberyard with our focus on offering our customers access to one of the finest collections of exotic woods in the world. We maintain over 140 species of domestic and imported hardwoods. Most of these species would be considered by the wood industry to be the finest and most beautiful examples of their species (Example Birdseye Maple instead of Hard Maple, Amboyna Burl, book matched 40”+ Paduak, Koa in large flitches and dimensional lumber, Rosewood, Snakewood, French Walnut, etc.). Within these wood species we stock most of our inventory in only the highest grades with more than half of it being either figured or unusually wide.
A healthy global environment is always a primary consideration for us. We focus on areas of the world where there is sound forest management. We sell a lot of state certified sustainable products such as German Spessart Oak and also deal in many salvaged woods, an example being reclaimed American Chestnut. Trees are a renewable resource when managed properly.
We are able to offer the finest grades of these timbers at fair market prices by hand selecting our material at the source. Rick Hearne started this business over 30 years ago as a logger. Through experience he is able to pick 1 log out of hundreds of the same species that for one reason or another is more extraordinary due to figure, color, etc. Rick and his son, Brian Hearne, are our primary log purchasers and spend a significant amount of time traveling the globe looking for beautiful exotic wood. We are always on the look out for the next “one of a kind log”; these logs (flitches) are what make our business truly special.
This business has become a passion to the Hearne family and it can be seen in the vast amount of beautiful wood that we have collected; at any given time our inventory holds 1 million board feet of lumber in over 140 different species. Our goal is to offer our customers the most diversified collection of unique timbers that can be found from sustainable sources, coupled with excellent customer service.
We take great pride in our business and every order is important to us. If you are a homeowner, fine furniture maker, architectural millwork company, cabinet company, musical instrument maker or any user of fine wood, please look no further. We want to show you one of the finest collections of wood in the world.
