Eric & Kerry

The Hardenbrook Hardwoods story began in 1983 when we began creating a variety of handmade cutting boards, knife blocks and free-standing butcher blocks. While Eric ran the shop, Kerry drew on her years as an artist to refine designs and help with sales. As a result, the business did well until a recession and the birth of two awesome children demanded a more steady source of income. The decision was made to close the shop and Eric took a job making adhesives for Oregon’s wood products industry. Then, in 1989, the family packed up and left Springfield for the high desert of Bend, where Eric became a general contractor. After 20 years of building homes and several years as an internet marketing consultant, it was time for a change. Hardenbrook Hardwoods reopened in the spring of 2015 and has been delighting customers ever since!
