« Part 1: New wood source Local Wood In Berryville, VA Part 2 of Local Resources series Part 3: Vienna Hardwoods - Vienna, VA »

To continue my local resources listings..

Herbine Hardwoods is located in Lucketts just outside of Leesburg, the owner Rick Herbine owns a small farm and has a kiln and sawmill on premise. The hardwood business is a side business and by appointment only so you have to call him ahead of time and leave a message. He is good about returning calls and setting up a time meet.

They have a large selection of various local species plus some odd stuff throw in here and there. They almost always has cherry, oak (Red and While), popular, walnut and ash. They also have a shorts area where there is a collection of 4-5 footer that are sold at a discount.

When I was last there he had several large box elm slabs that were really cool with their red streaks. There was also the large piece of 5/4 live edge spalted maple that had to come home with me. Rick knows his wood and is a good guy to talk wood with.

I’ll vouch for Rick’s milling – I have used him regularly over the past few years. I bring the tree’s to him (my brother in law’s trailer) and I’ve gotten just milled, and milled and kiln dried. No complaints at all.

Have your say...
