Van Heyneker Fine Woodworking is a business owned and operated by Josie and Van Heyneker. Both Josie and Van started out as classical musicians and have spent considerable time overseas. Eventually, though, they turned their talents to the art of woodworking, and for more than 30 years have been developing a loyal following of discriminating clients.
They produce commission based, one-of-a-kind pieces in their Mendenhall shop, ranging from classical and contemporary furniture to paneled offices and libraries, general cabinetry, and many other unique woodworking projects. They are also proficient in antique furniture restoration that involves carving, lathe work, veneer, inlay, and finishes.
In addition to their work for homeowners, builders, and architects, the Heynekers have done work for many of the regional museums and historical societies.
Josie and Van invite you to contact them or drop by the shop to discuss any project you may have in mind. You’ll be able to see whatever they are working on at the time. There is also a small retail hardwood lumber business located next to the shop, providing you with a choice of mahogany, domestic hardwoods such as black walnut, cherry, maple, red or white oak, or other wood for your project.
