Owner Joe Davison has many years of experience in the hardwood industry, which allows him to offer customers the quality hardwoods their are desiring.  For our international customers we can select logs for your orders using Joe’s diverse knowledge of hardwoods.  Joe also works closely with veneer mills to assure our international customers that have custom cutting done domestically receive quality veneer products.  Customers may also make appointments to make log selections themselves.
