This has been one of the most special months of my life. Firstly, my second grandson, Chase Ryan Cieszynski, was born to my son, Chris, and his wife, Jesse. A few days later, my second son, Brian, got married to his fiancé, Mollie Daze, with my youngest son, Lee, standing as Best Man. One of the advantages of being older is we have witnessed the progression of families evolving and we know how incredible the love is that develops in family units. Now I get to watch as the wonders of the world unfolds to another little bundle of love and to have the joy of being able to welcome a new daughter to our family. Thank you God for focusing love on my family!

Recent News:

As our Sawyer, Steven Beiler, likes to say, Rick Hearne "spent some time on the other side of the pond" (he made a quick trip to England). He was there to hand select our Fall/Winter stock of English Sycamore. Rick was very happy with what he found and bought a full container's worth of 4/4, 6/4, and 8/4 quarter sawn material, some is highly figured. Additionally he purchased a couple of very large, very burly English Brown Oak logs. We expect to receive this material in the next couple of months; please give us a call if you would like additional information: (888)-814-0007.

The Annual Hearne Hardwoods Company 4th of July Party was also a huge success. As always Rick and Pat were wonderful hosts, and the pig roast and fireworks were fantastic.

Featured Wood: Zebrawood

Zebrawood Mircoberlinia brazzavillensis, or "Zebrano" in Europe, is named for its chrematistic dark and light striping. The wood is primarily imported from Central African countries such as Gabon, Congo, and Cameroon. For stability and to create the stripy pattern, it is almost always quarter sawn. Also worth noting is that Zebrawood is a species all to itself, and it is different from Goncalo Alves which is occasionally referred to as Tigerwood or Zebrawood.

Similar to other tropical hardwoods, Zebrawood is dense and can be a bit difficult to work. It is most commonly used to make fine furniture, cabinetry, musical instruments, high end automotive and aircraft interiors, inlay work and veneer. Normal dimensions for this lumber are 4-12 inch widths with 8-12 foot lengths. We stock 4/4 and 8/4 material.

If you would like additional information please give us a call: (888)-814-0007.
