WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Established in 1992 by Cliff and Lori Witt, Witt Hardwoods is a family-owned and operated business with Cliff Witt being the core of the business.

Witt Hardwoods is the definition of a family owned and operated business. Outside of Zeb’s friends, typically no outside help is hired.
Once we start a job, whether it be pushing a walnut grove for burls and logs, logging buckeye, or even cutting slabs, our number one concern is the environment. We love nature, therefore it is important to us that every step of the process, every tree, every cut is done correctly and conservative. We are not rapacious or wasteful. We use every inch of the bi-products of our wood.
Not fond of chemicals, altering nature or harsh glues and substances, we take pride in delivering wood that is in it's natural beautiful stage. No kiln or technology is used to speed the drying time. Everything is naturally dried. Of course, if you want psychedelic colorful fun buckeye wood, we outsource the impregnation process.
We are a family of unique characteristics, personalities and talents. We love to share our wood journey and uniqueness of our business with anyone. Our wood represents the dreamers, the doers, the entrepreneurs, the money makers, story tellers and lovers of life.
An avid hunter and fisher, gourmet chef and vegetable gardener, Cliff possesses a personality and talents that you can't ignore. Cliff's experience and expertise come from working in the wood industry 25+ years. With an eye for detail and an ability to view a log and determine the quality, color, and figure are skills he possess and carries on to his customers.
