“Wonderful. I was able to get some nice pieces of wood to make cutting boards. The gentleman that helped me was very nice and helpful. I will be going back for more wood, and their great service.”

“After purchasing a foreclosure in Accord NY, I needed some wood products. My builder recommended Excelsior to me because it is where he gets most of his wood products (including flooring, siding, etc.). His recommendation was spot on! The team at Excelsior, including Ron the owner, are professional and excellent at what they do. I continue to go back to them for additional projects that require wood and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“Owning a home in Woodstock, I was looking for something unique that would fit into my cottage. A friend recommended I check out Excelsior Wood Products on Sawkill Road.
I was greeted by Christina Sauer, a most vivacious young woman who guided me through the process. Mind you, there was no sales pressure, no ‘make up your mind NOW’; she seemed to know what I was looking for to complete my cottage dining room. She showed me the different types of wood and then after carefully choosing my soon-to-be table, we chalked out the slab of black walnut. Christina would call me every few days to keep me in touch with the progress of the table and finally, I got to see the beautiful craftsmanship of THE table. I cried the first time I saw it…never seen such a beautiful piece of nature! She introduced me to the man who took that raw slab of wood and made it a place where I will break bread with family & friends.
I can’t talk enough about the professionalism and the perfectionism I was exposed to. Many thanks to all who saw my vision and made it happen. I am sure to be back for more unique pieces of nature.”

“We enlisted Excelsior to make a coffee table for us out of Coney Island boardwalk wood. Working with them was an absolute pleasure. Christina was our go-to person and walked us through the process. She was comfortable taking our suggestions and including them in the design of the product. The table is absolutely gorgeous . . . just what we had envisioned it would be. Chris, the woodworker assigned to our project, was fabulous to work with. He is a true craftsman, so much so that we were delighted to have him sign our table. The Excelsior team knows what they are doing and do it so very well!”

“We purchased the most amazing reclaimed barn wood floors for our new addition that is the focal point for the room. The floors have a unique character that makes the large space both beautiful and warm. We were very pleased to work with Excelsior on this project, as they were very professional and extremely creative with the design. The delivery was exactly on the date and time as promised. We plan to work with Excelsior again for our next project – and hope it will be more than a floor.”
“The best place there is in the northeast for custom wood products! From one-of-a-kind furniture pieces to custom finished wood flooring and siding, they maintain high-quality standards and stand by their products. I’ve been a repeat customer for over 10 years now.”
“Christina provided a large amount of reclaimed lumber we needed for a manhattan project. The crew at excelsior took great care to provide exactly what I needed to get my project completed in time.”

“We built a LEED-certified home and used Excelsior’s reclaimed heart pine in many ways: flooring, benches, and posts. Ron sourced and obtained amazingly gorgeous beams from a factory in Ohio that were planed into gorgeous, wide plank flooring. I built the house along with a lead carpenter who was initially skeptical about working with such long, wide reclaimed wood. He was also skeptical that the finish would work as promised. By the end of the installation, our carpenter said, ‘This was the easiest, best floor to install. And, I can’t believe a single coat of VOC-free flooring oil could be so easy to use yet so beautiful.’ A year later, the floor looks great. Even more, it feels great on our feet.”

“Hi, Ron. Just wanted to let you know that the floors are nothing less than AMAZING!!!!! We are so happy. I can’t stop looking at them. Thank you so much for all your attention to detail. The colors are so rich. Thanks again”
“In 2012, we had Excelsior Wood Products install flooring in our waterfront home. We chose Antique Pine reclaimed wood. This type of flooring complimented the renovation of the existing structure which was built in 1940. With its wide planks, distressed finish, and deep rich brown hues, the antique pine flooring has withstood our lifestyle by the water, our two labs, and family gatherings with grandchildren. We loved the final result with this flooring so much that we decided to have Excelsior make our staircase and custom build our kitchen/dining (huge) table. The staircase is beautiful with thick, solid treads. Ron custom-made our table with Coney Island Boardwalk. The design and size are amazing. We highly recommend Excelsior Wood Products. The owners and staff have great customer service and really take the time for your personal needs and questions.”
- Cindy, Saugerties, NY
“Great place to turn your imagination into reality. Helpful staff with all sorts of wood for flooring, walls, furniture, etc. I even made window valances from the beautiful old wood I picked up from them. They are knowledgeable and willing to take the time to work with you. A must-visit if you are truly interested in fine wood projects.”
- Cj Cutugno
“I wanted a piece of reclaimed wood for a fireplace mantel. I visited the shop and I have to say I was overwhelmed, in a good way, by the selection of wood that they have. The service was excellent.”
- Lorrie Coppola
“It was my pleasure to work with Ron Sauer and his team at Excelsior! They were a delight to work with to customize our new construction home built in 2011, in Lake Hill, NY. Ron and his team fabricated custom trim and moldings for the entire house, they also installed reclaimed wide-width red oak floors with beautiful finish throughout, made custom reclaimed beam mantels for our fireplaces, installed reclaimed wood ceilings in two bedrooms as well as beam wraps. They also installed reclaimed Ipe from the Coney Island Boardwalk on our large wrap-around porches and screen room. This was stunning and gave our home a piece of history and made the home feel it had been there forever, rather than the typical new construction feel.
However, our favorite work Ron did was design a live edge island top for our kitchen. It was a piece of art and the centerpiece of our kitchen! We received countless compliments on the work they did. The Excelsior team was prompt, materials were fabricated with care, delivered on time, installed beautifully! I would highly recommend Excelsior to anyone looking for beautiful craftsmanship, excellent service, and a unique product. Excelsior delivers.”

“Here at Mills-Norrie State Park, we have a very busy campground with over forty-five sites and ten cabins. We serve a diverse clientele from a large number of geographic locations ranging from very rural areas to New York City. We recently had the good fortune to obtain the kiln-dried fire logs which we sell to our campers for campfires. Our campers absolutely love them! They are clean, easy to light, and a completely “green” product. They are also insect and disease-free which with the recent concerns about the Emerald Ash Borer, gives us confidence that no damage or disease is being spread in our forests. We have also used these fire logs in our woodstoves and fireplaces and found them to be very efficient, clean-burning with a minimal amount of ash. Finally, it should not be understated how friendly, courteous, and professional all the folks at Excelsior Wood Products have been to us. A win-win situation all the way!”
