Okay, Truth be Told - We Just Needed Somewhere to Gloat...

Let’s talk family before business.

We are a family of five:  Barry (Dad), Julie (Mom) Charlie, George and Sam (string of sons), and Izzy (cat).   You might say woodworking has us immersed totally.   Barry has a day job running the woodworking division of Walter Meier (JET & Powermatic woodworking machinery.)   Julie works one of our other businesses - and herds three sons and a cat. 

Due to Barry’s day job, as you might expect, we have a woodworking shop that could best be described as "amateur gone mad."

Bottom line, we love all things wood - which brings us to this venture.

We founded our business on three principles:
  1. Exceed the customer’s expectations
  2. Have a price which cannot be beat
  3. Be easy to get along with
Our financial business philosophy is quite simple also.  We don’t owe anybody any money and overhead is something we need the forklift for.

Schwaiger Woodworks is focused on high end hardwoods, mostly indigenous species, for the serious woodworkers.  Our hardwood flooring is a spin off of having lots of wood lying around.  We focus our hardwood flooring on four primary species: Walnut, Cherry, Hickory & White Oak. When it comes to quality of this flooring, the 2nd best joke is simply that. Our flooring is top notch material which is defected and end matched by some of the best guys in the business.

Schwaiger Woodworks is a cooperative effort with Oleksik, Inc of Rock Island, TN. Oleksik, Inc is owned by George and Mary Oleksik of Rock Island. George is the retired CFO of Powermatic and seems to know all things business and financial. Basically everyone in eastern Tennessee knows and loves the Oleksik family and string of children. In April of 2010 George opened a 6,000 square foot distribution center in Rock Island, TN and we are currently loading it with product.

Let us send you a sample and you can decide for yourself - or better yet come see us if you are able.  In the meantime, send us a note and let’s see if we can get you to look after one of these kids so we can stack some lumber.
