About our store
Asheville Hardware first opened its doors in 2007 at 91 Biltmore Avenue (now home to Wicked Weed Brewery) with a commitment to bringing high quality tools and hardware to Asheville's surging craft and construction community. By 2010, we had begun to drift away from hardware as our loyal customers gravitated towards our ever expanding selection of woodworking tools and lumber. In may 2010 we moved to our present location at 10 Buxton Avenue in the heart of Asheville's up and coming south slope. Here we have over 12,000 square feet of retail space showcasing our unique selection of fine tools and locally harvested inspirational lumber. From scrap wood sold by the pound to Sawstop table saws, we supply both the novice and the professional woodworker.
The past 5 years have seen a great resurgence in the use of natural edge or slab lumber in the art of furniture making. The live edge aesthetic has a great diversity and versatility in its ability to be incorporated into many different architectural styles and craft traditions--from rustic to modern to contemporary. We are proud to be the regions largest retail supplier of locally harvested live edge slab lumber. See our currently available slabs here.
