How Long Does
Quality Last?

My father and grandfather both made wood furniture. Quality has a way of staying in the family. A childhood love of trees has led to a lifetime of enjoying fine woodworking and sharing this joy with others.

-Mike Fisher, Founder

In 1975

Mike Fisher slips a love note into the first box he made and gives it to his high school sweetheart. In 1978 he leaves college to launch Heartwood.

A New Leaf

In 2015 Mike builds a wood stand to declutter his desk. He then asks, “How many other desks could use the same help?” This question inspires the Understands project.
