EAS­TON — Broth­ers Johnny and Ge­orge Dent started their wood­work­ing busi­ness in 2004 in an old farm­house in the Wye Mills area. The broth­ers are co-own­ers of the busi­ness. They vir­tu­ally started from the floor up.

For years, the broth­ers have made metic­u­lously fin­ished wood floors. In the process, they have de­vel­oped a re­la­tion­ship with many lo­cal con­trac­tors, build­ing long-last­ing re­la­tion­ships with top builders, ar­chi­tects and real es­tate agents.

Their floors and fin­ish­ing work graces the floors of many homes in the area. Their em­pha­sis was on com­plete cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

“Us­ing these goals, we have been able to grow into the best floor­ing com­pany in the re­gion,” the broth­ers say on their web­page.

Over the years, they have learned and ex­panded their ex­per­tise of work­ing with wood to in­clude a wide va­ri­ety of spe­cialty re­claimed woods, beams and man­tels. They also now do cus­tom kitchens and cab­i­nets, and have a large se­lec­tion of tile and ves­sel sinks and van­i­ties.

A visit to their re­cently opened show­room demon­strates to vis­i­tors that they ap­proach work­ing with wood as an art form. Their use of fin­ish­ing, resins and colors make a ta­ble more than just a piece of fur­ni­ture. It is a piece of art. There are sev­eral styles in the show­room. The firm prides it­self on us­ing top qual­ity fin­ishes and stains to get the ex­act look the cus­tomer de­sires. They have fin­ish­ers with more than 20 years of fin­ish­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to give the proper de­tail work.

Tuck­a­hoe Hard­woods has the most ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of floor­ing in the area. They pride them­selves on hav­ing a floor for ev­ery project and bud­get.

Ge­orge has lived in China and in in­done­sia. He has col­lected woods from there from bam­boo to teak for their cus­tomers. He of­ten can be found be­hind a com­puter han­dling the book work of the busi­ness.

Johnny is more likely to get his hands dirty. On the day a re­porter vis­ited the dis­play room, he was on the phone work­ing with one of the three teams they had out on a job sight.

The show­room is on Com­merce Drive in Eas­ton. The build­ing backs up on the Eas­ton By­pass just op­pos­ing Lowe’s Home Im­prove­ment Cen­ter in the Eas­ton Mar­ket­place.

At the present time, cus­tomers should call ahead and make an ap­point­ment at 410-3103937 to visit the show­room. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but a visit can be made at an­other time upon re­quest.

“We are ready now to let peo­ple come and see what we do. We have dropped a lot of jaws as peo­ple come in and see what we have,” Ge­orge said.

The store will have a for­mal open­ing in sev­eral weeks.
