The Story

Amish Sawmill

We start with real trees, in a real stand of forest.

HONEST SOURCING

The Amish have stood by environmentally friendly practices long before being green became trendy. At HoCoFab, we go back to the root source—a stand of forest that is sustainably harvested, one tree at a time. Our wood is chosen for its quality and obtained with low-impact methods that protect surrounding trees.

Only the finest…

FRESH FROM THE SAWMILL

Only the best hardwood specimens are selected for use in HoCoFab designs, after they are graded and sorted. Our Amish craftsman ensures quality at each point of the manufacturing process.

HAND-CRAFTED, HAND-FINISHED

No detail goes unnoticed when Albert and his team of Amish master craftsmen turn a plank of hardwood into a finely wrought masterpiece. When the wood element of a HoCoFab piece is ready for finishing, it travels a few miles from Albert’s woodshop to a shop that specializes in the kind of surfaces that love to be touched and yet will last generations. A combination of spray application, hand-sanding and wiping techniques result in a finish that enhances the beauty of the wood species and only improves with the patina of time.

The secret sauce is in the joints and the finishing… 

 

THAT POP OF COLOR

When the hardwood arrives in the HoCoFab studio in Santa Fe, painstaking care is taken to choose the powder coated colors for the steel elements of the design. Each piece is unique, set apart by style, wood species and color. And, of course, HoCoFab can make something that harmonizes with your décor yet will bring it new life with fresh color.
