DomEx Hardwoods Customer Testimonials

We saw your ad in Fine Woodworking for Holly wood and we decided to order some from you. First of all you were such help in ordering the wood and second when we received the Holly it was BEAUTIFUL. Ordering something over the internet can be scary as you don't know what you will get in return. Dave and I have been looking for a good source to get Holly from and when he saw your ad we were excited, so we gave you a try. You and your wood did NOT disappoint at all. We are so pleased with it. We ran it thru our sander and were so excited at how truly beautiful the wood was. We use Holly in our double bevel marquetry, segmented turnings and furniture projects. We definitely will be ordering again from you. Thanks Troy!!

We received the saber case today which we had ordered to protect and display the saber our son was awarded upon his graduation from Virginia Military Institute in 2014.  I want to pass onto you how beautiful the case is!  Wow!  While it was well represented in your on-line photos, the case totally exceeds our expectations!  It is simple and elegant and the craftsmanship is outstanding.  Well done!  Also, I want to let you know how easy it was to order.  Very straightforward.  And it arrived within a few days and safely packaged.  Again, well done!

Thank you very much for the memorial flag case. You did a wonderful job on it! My family and I both loved it! You do great work and were wonderful to speak to. Thank you again! My family and I will definitely be using your services in the future.

Ally - Talala, OK

The display case is perfect! You made a deserving family very happy.

Lucas - Tyler, TX

Hi Troy, finally got the holly and you are correct - it is premium grade. I will make plenty of inlay lines with it!

Brian - Hawthorne, CA

The cherry wood Flag Case/Shadow Box arrived on Monday, 28 Jan, right around 1:15 p.m. (impeccable timing). It was simply breath-taking, my bottom lip was on the floor, and my eye balls were bulging (lol)! It arrived in absolute perfect condition and right on time as per your guarantee; further it was extremely well packaged! I organized the Box which enhanced its beauty. I tell you this Box was the "highlight" of the ceremony, so many "ews" & "aws"; and the recipient just could not hold back her tearful emotions. Nearly everybody asked me where did I find such a fine piece of "Art". I was grinning from ear to ear, as I was soooooooo happy that my Heavenly Father guided me to you. I certainly appreciate your excellent conversation/guidance and service, you made me a very happy woman!!! My sincere gratitude is hereby conveyed to you for all you did in assisting me in being able to present such a fine piece of Art to my long time (nearly 28 years) friend & colleague. Again thanks so very much!

Marilyn - Compton, CA

I just received the Holly. You indeed didn’t say a word too much about the quality. It is indeed gorgeous and I’m looking foreward to working with it.  Thank you for your excellent service!

Leo - The Netherlands

We finally finished the instrument which I used from the Holly I purchased from you.  Our instrument maker had never seen white wood before in his life.  As soon as he saw the wood he fell in love with it, but he was not sure what it would sound like. Rest assured it sounds better than the traditional wood they have been using for the last 70 years.  The wood was so easy to work with and it bent well too.  Even the fret board of the instrument was made from your holly.

Gilbert - Australia

This is just to let you know that the wood which I ordered from you (Honduras Rosewood) arrived yesterday, and I am absolutely delighted with it! It is a beautiful piece of wood, and it is exactly what I had been looking for! Thank you very much indeed for dispatching my order so quickly.  Your service has been second-to-none at every step of the way, and I would like you to know that I really do appreciate everything which you have done for me. I was extremely impressed by the speed with which the wood arrived - exactly one week, to the UK, including the day or so which it spent at customs - this really is excellent, and I will certainly be ordering some more rosewood from you in a few weeks time! Many thanks once again for your excellent service!

Peter - United Kingdom

I received the military shadow box. I must say that I am very pleased with the service you have given my order, from setting up the special order for the custom box to the speed of getting the order to me. And the quality of the box is great. I could not have wished for better service. Thanks, thanks and thanks. As for finding your sight, I had been looking for several days on the net and could not find anyone with a box big enough for my needs. I saw that you offered custom boxes and none of the other sites did. I used AOL for my search and the term "shadow box" I had to go thru a lot of sites to get to you. I am so glad I took the time. My thanks again for your excellent service

John - Knoxville, TN

Hi... The black palm arrived today ... I ran it through a surface sander s4s ... Holy !'m@$)((:/- it is one of the best I have purchased in 37yrs... maybe the best . Many people (most) do not know what it is , and those that do want the best for a commission piece. 1/2 of it will be turned into a cane for a vet. So thank you... you have made two individuals very happy!

Walter - Washington, PA

I was looking for a nice snowy piece of Holly for a cane I'm working on and did a search through a mega search tool. After a few tries, it came up with a short ilex list. DomEx was included. After visiting each site, only yours had what I was looking for...actually better than I was expecting. The Holly is wonderful and worth the price. I can probably make three cane handles out of the piece. Wish you all the best with your new site. Once my site is up and running, I'll be sure to include a link to DomEx as a resource supplier.

Vlad - Spring Grove, PA

The military hat box arrived this afternoon.  The box arrived today and fully intact, thanks in no small part to the excellent packing job you guys did. The box looks great, just as I imagined it. I really want to thank you for all you did to make this happen. You really went above and beyond the call of duty. It was a real pleasure to work with you guys and I will hold on to your card and will recommend you to any of my coworkers. I will ensure they give you more time to work with than I did though.

Rick - Fort Bragg, CA

I was looking for inlay material (I am an enthusiastic hobbyist and wood collector) and Google search for holly wood lumber took me to your ebay offering and storefront. I then went direct to your website which by the way, is a very good one and easy to use. I strongly suspect I will be visiting again. You are bookmarked in my "Wood" folder.

Mike - Gainesville, GA

I have spent the day carving the piece of holly I got from you into an instrument...I will show pics when further along...It is amazing wood...almost no grain at all to worry about and carves like frozen butter.  I will buy your entire inventory of I wish!

Jeff - Ontario, Canada

Took a look at your web-site – IMPRESSED! Very well organized,  clean and straight forward. Not all this fancy pop-ups and effects trying to disturb you. Just exactly what I need in a simple and delicate way. Good job! Keep up the good work! Hope we can make more business!

Sigurd - Norway

I really just stumbled upon your website. I had been searching for some holly for a few days and finally just did a google search for "holly lumber."  I have purchased quite a bit of Holly over the years and I received my purchase from you yesterday. I have to say that the boards are all very nice with minimal defects and I am very impressed at the quality of the 8/4 board that I purchased. Holly is hard to find in 8/4 and I don't need it for this project, but bought it to have for future work. Thank you for living up to your claims of having "premium" material and I will certainly keep you in mind for future needs and will recommend your site to others.

Nick - Millers, MD

Everything arrived in good shape. The case looks awesome. Everyone was stunned at how marvelous it was once assembled. We had quite a few ex-military present who commented about how it was the nicest style they'd ever seen (and they'd seen quite a few military retirement cases presented).  Thanks again for processing this so quickly.

Matthew - Palmdale, CA

This was the best experience I have had as a customer. Thank you DomEx Hardwoods for the 2 beautiful pieces of Holly. I am building an electric guitar "Iceman" out of purple heart and holly. I think the white of the Holly with the purple heart will be exquisite. Thanks for making my transaction an easy one without complications. Anyone who is looking for truly exotic wood at a price that is very reasonable need look no further than right here. I will be shopping with you all again.

Angela - Loveland, CO

I just want to thank you again for the Flag/Coin Display case! It is absolutely beautiful and I am so excited for my son to receive for Christmas. I also want to say that I was very impressed with the amount of personalized attention you gave my order both initially when I asked you about the display case and especially with the shipping issues. Thank you again and with out a doubt I will be ordering from you again in the very near future!

Monica - Monticello, IA

I received the shadow box and am very impressed that it made it with no damage.  Whoever packed it totally understands packing.   The box is extremely well made and heirloom quality.  I absolutely love it!  Thank you so much!

Gary - Snyder, TX

The case arrived yesterday, and I couldn't be happier! It looks fantastic, and the sword and scabbard fit perfectly. Thanks for working with me to make this possible. My grandfather would be so happy to see it in this display!
