A COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
For all but 40 years, Talarico Hardwoods has been known for producing the
highest quality, and best selection of Old-Growth Quartered White Oak you can find. With today's
new-found appreciation for old-growth lumber and mission-style furniture, we continue to focus on acquiring
these hard-to-find, big, old-growth logs and produce the highest quality lumber from them.

Certified Sustainable Harvested woods
We here at Talarico Hardwoods are very concerned about conservation issues and we do stock many sustainable harvested hardwoods. First, We do not do any logging. We buy all our logs from reputable loggers and log merchants. All our Spessart and Pfalz forest Oak logs are PEFC certified and comes out of Enduring/Protected forest culture areas.
All of our other Europeans Logs come from private lands and Estates. Our domestic logs come from private lands and urban areas.
TALARICO HARDWOODS is proud to offer you our wide selection of the highest quality,
precision sawn, tight grained, rift and quartered lumber. In addition to White Oak, our selection includes
quartered Cherry, Ash, Sycamore, English Brown Oak, French Oak, and curly English Sycamore. We also carry world-class highly
figured and bookmatched lumber.

When I walk into my studio everyday I am surrounded by great wood,
beautiful cabinetry, and music all day long. I do my personal
woodworking in here and also sing with my vocal group "The Spirits In
The House" every Monday Night. There is music playing all the time
because it is BIG MEDICINE. This is where I find my peace everyday.
