We Don’t Compromise on Quality

wood flooring

After more than four decades in business, Goodwin continues to operate with the same high standards we did when we started back in 1976. Architects, designers, and building design professionals especially appreciate the time, quality, and craftsmanship that goes into each and every Goodwin product:

  • We use what is arguably the strictest grading standard in the industry. Our 100% American-made wood is milled with strict grading guidelines to ensure our customers truly enjoy the finest products on the market.
  • Goodwin invests in quality, accurate machinery. Our mill is operated by skilled craftsmen who have an eye for quality. In fact, our founder George Goodwin is still the company sawyer!
  • Our on-site storage facility ensures that our woods can be perfectly preserved until they are ordered. This means you don’t have to wait for the entire milling process to be complete or the season to be right to enjoy antique wood that looks freshly milled.

The Goodwin Difference

There have been many imitators over the years and there are still companies who claim the same standards as Goodwin.  However, the proof is in the quality and craftsmanship, which is why we challenge you to compare Goodwin’s wood side-by-side to any other finished wood in the world and you will clearly see why we are considered the industry gold standard.

Wild Black Cherry – A Wise Investment

Goodwin was proud to partner with our good friends at LEVEL Architecture and THEORY Construction to provide some of our beautiful, highly sought after wild black cherry for one of their latest projects.

Notice how the wild black cherry baffle wall and ceiling are used to break up the room space in a contemporary way.  The versatility of reclaimed, recovered and sustainably harvested wood allows expert design professionals to creatively apply the material and elevate ultra-contemporary settings.

It’s amazing the big impact a little wild cherry can make. Are you interested in taking your home or office to the next level?  If so, your friends at Goodwin are ready to help.  Give us a call today!

Heavy Roast and Heartpine

The Opus Coffee House  #7 – located in the Gainesville, Florida Innovation Square district near the University of Florida – has a new look just in time for the start of the school year.  Students and patrons of Opus Coffee House #7 can now enjoy their java in a warm, relaxing atmosphere adorned with beautiful antique longleaf heartpine.

The project designer, Nancey Jones of LEVEL Architecture + Interiors, specified Goodwin’s antique longleaf heartpine for a gorgeous feature wall and bar front.  The bar front is blue sap stain and then hand-stained mocha brown by Heritage Wood Finish Company.  Both perfectly complement the subtle polished concrete floors.

Nancey Jones was kind enough to provide us with the renderings and photos of the project which allows us to showcase the remodel from start to finish.  Take a look:

Sneak Peek: River-Recovered® Heart Cypress

A financial consultant in Ocala, Florida is incorporating River-Recovered® Heart Cypress Select and Character into his downtown office.  The owner of the space was inspired by the photos of the Visit Tampa Bay office with its rustic wall paneling acting as a foil for the sleeker finishes. As a result, he is paneling the front entrance reception area and the breakroom with Heart Cypress. He is also incorporating it into the ceiling of the bathroom.

While the project is far from complete, our client was kind enough to take some photos to give us a sneak peek.  Take a look:

We cannot wait to see the finished project!  Stay tuned…we will be sending a photographer out to get some photos once it is complete.

The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art and Legacy Vertical Heart Pine

The 80,000 square foot James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, Florida features a vast collection of art acquired by Tom and Mary James.  The couple, who has always been captivated by the art, wildlife and landscape of the western United States, has collected more than 3,000 pieces over the past five decades. The James Museum houses 400-500 of the most premier works of art from their private collection.

Goodwin partnered with Corey Cathcart of Integrity Floors to provide 300 sq. ft. of 3 ¼” building reclaimed Legacy Vertical Heart Pine during the construction of the James Museum.  He installed this beautiful antique wood on the underside of the gorgeous bridge that crosses over the simulated sandstone canyon that encompasses the museum entrance.  Take a look:

Antique Wood Design – We Do That, Too!

Although many of our clients are building design professionals, every so often a homeowner comes to us seeking our antique wood design expertise. Take a look at these photos of a 20 ft. tall ceiling we designed for a home in St. Simons Island, Georgia.

The owners desired to incorporate a traditional look to what was a really high, float away, white ceiling. We designed a gorgeous antique wood ceiling crafted from Goodwin’s River-Recovered® Heart Cypress Select. The 717 sf coffered sinker cypress ceiling – 9” wide tongue and groove installed on a 45 degree angle – was designed to add warmth and visual interest. The larger wrapped beams running east to west are 14″ deep and 8″ wide. The smaller wrapped beams running north to south are 10″ deep and 6″ wide. All of the sinker cypress was finished on site with oil.

Incorporating Multiple Antique Wood Products to Achieve a Unique, Modern Look

This vintage beach home on Florida’s First Coast is being remodeled and incorporates a variety of Goodwin woods to achieve a unique, modern look.  Still under renovation, this home in sunny Ponte Vedra, Florida (near Jacksonville) is taking on a distinctive style all its own.

Once complete, the home will feature 2360sf of Goodwin’s Vintage Precision Engineered (building reclaimed) heart pine ceilings and floors.  This is the first time that we know of where an engineered product is being incorporated into a ceiling.  It looks absolutely gorgeous!

The custom crafted contemporary stair rail, stairs and treads are Legacy (building reclaimed) solid heart pine.  Legacy heart pine was also used for the upstairs hall shelves.  All Legacy wood was then stained a beautiful, deep, rich chocolate color.

Finally, the River-Recovered® Heart Cypress Character used on the vaulted ceiling contrasts nicely with the light gray painted walls.

We love sharing sneak peeks of building and remodeling projects in progress.  We look forward to posting stunning photos of this newly remodeled beach home once complete.

River-Recovered® Heart Pine and Heart Cypress Add Contemporary Grace and Elegance to High End Home

Our good friend Mark Jefferson of Jefferson Woodworking sent us a sneak peek of a high end residential project he is in the process of completing for a client.

Mark used Goodwin’s River-Recovered Heart Pine Vertical Clear to face the stair treads and the central stringer (spine) in this very contemporary floating staircase:

River-Recovered Heart Cypress Vertical Clear and Pecky Cypress make up the feature wall and gorgeous ceiling.

The side angle close-up shows how the pecky alone is raised, thus giving a depth and three-dimensional aspect to the surface:

Why does Mark choose Goodwin wood for high end projects? “It makes a difference for discerning clients – the look plus a story,”  explains Mark.

Goodwin enjoys working with talented craftsmen like Mark who are as passionate about delivering an excellent product as we are!

Stay tuned for more photos once the project is complete.

Heart Cypress Feature Wall

Heart Cypress Feature Wall Adds Beauty and “Grace” to Non-Profit Reception Area

Grace Place, a non-profit organization in Naples, Florida that helps children and families, now has a gorgeous River-Recovered® Heart Cypress feature wall in their reception area to recognize their generous donors.  The wood feature wall was crafted using 120 sq.ft of River-Recovered Heart Cypress Select and Vertical with trim.  Dan Petersen of Heritage Wood Finish Company coated it with his signature UV Diamond 7, a proprietary finish he formulated specifically for Goodwin.

Goodwin partnered with David Corban Architects, who were referred to us by our good friend Tenna Florian from Lake/Flato Architects. This is one of the most creative uses of a wood feature wall we have seen.  What a unique and beautiful way for a non-profit organization to recognize and demonstrate how much they value their donors!

Add a Little Character to Your Home or Office in 2018

Have you seen our River-Recovered® Heart Cypress Character feature walls?  They are a hot seller and are absolutely stunning.  In fact, heart cypress character’s unique fine grain, arching grain patterns and vertical pinstripes makes it a popular species for feature walls, paneling, ceilings, trim and anywhere else you want to add subtle beauty.
