Our Inspiration at Handcrafted by Schmidt


At Handcrafted by Schmidt, we love spending time outdoors, and we grew up passing much of our free time hiking, camping, hunting, and fishing among the extraordinary beauty of nature. We also grew up learning about the value of hard work and having a passion for what you do. When we got the opportunity to work with the Amish and learn their centuries-old techniques for hand crafting hardwood floors, we jumped at the chance to discover and perfect the old-world craft.

Our inspiration comes from combining all three of these things: using a time-honored tradition of artistry and hard work to showcase the natural beauty of hardwoods. We are proud to use our inspiration with every hand-scraped flooring project to tell each customer’s unique story, bring their dreams to reality, and make them an important part of our story. With over 100 hand-scraped and textured flooring projects under our belt, we are always finding new ways to ensure our inspiration is clear in each masterpiece we create.
