About The Walnut Place
Michael Henwood and Robert Beauchamp founded Beauchamp
Henwood Hardwoods, aka The Walnut Place, on the premise of offering woodworkers a place to come
and purchase lumber from a company that understands how the wood will be put to use by the woodworker.
Experienced Furniture Makers
Michael and Robert have over 45 years of custom furniture making experience between them and understand
fully the challenges which face every woodworker starting a new project.
You can view some of the furniture we have made at
We understand how important the
selection of material is to making your projects go as smoothly as possible.
We also understand the complexity of matching wood for panels or drawers fronts to matching wood throughout a
fine piece of furniture. Our goal is to sell wood to you that we would like to use in our own projects.
When we select wood for your project, we will do so with as much care and consideration as if we were
choosing it for our own projects. You can be assured we will be
selecting it through the eyes of woodworkers making the best choice we can on your behalf.
If you ask us to provide you with beautifully figured matching boards for a table top, you can be assured
we understand what you are looking for, and that what we send out will certainly make a beautifully figured
matching table top.
All of our Lumber Comes From Salvage Logging Projects!
These include trees such as:
- Trees that were standing but dead or dying (due to disease or old age) which we removed.
- Trees we are given from tree trimmers who have removed them for clients.
- Trees knocked down from storms, or trees which are slated for removal because of imminent
road or building construction.
Michael and Robert both have been milling lumber independently for over 25
years before we started our business together. We believe each tree should have the opportunity to have a
second use as beautiful furniture. We hope you will find the color, figure, and beauty in the wood we offer.
Thank you for visiting us at The Walnut Place.
