Celebrating 44 Years of Quality Custom Millwork

Eric Hollenbeck, his family and staff welcome you to the Blue Ox Millworks, where the craftsmanship tools and techniques of the last century are utilized to produce authentic custom millwork for private homes and commercial buildings throughout the United States.  Our customers have included hundreds of homeowners, as well as governors' mansions, national parks, historic cathedrals, even the President of the United States. We are your Victorian millwork specialists, but we also specialize in meeting the millwork demands of new and original architectural designs.

Blue Ox's custom woodworking epitomizes the quality and longevity of the previous century’s craftsmen, and will last far into the new century, whether  custom-made interior and exterior moldings, balusters and columns, custom wood windows, wood doors, redwood gutter, corbels, gable decorations, any Victorian gingerbread or Victorian reproductions. Our expert craftsmen can match any pattern.  For reproductions, renovation, restoration, or just that special touch for your new home, whether your needs are structural or decorative, visit our millworks page, and find out how Blue Ox can go to work for you.

Summer Workshops

The Haunted Mill Tour

Halloween is coming, and the Blue Ox is opening its doors again for the Haunted Mill Tour. Get information at

We pride ourselves on authenticity. From our blacksmith shop to our historic craftsman's apothecary, from the world's largest collection of molder knives to our wide assortment of hand planes, Blue Ox is a craftsman's paradise presided over by a true craftsman. With over forty years of experience, Eric has become a master communicator in the delicate language of wood and he shares his skills at our living history park.

See America's frontier past come alive. Take one of our tours and watch our craftsmen use antique machinery of the 1800's and early 1900's to do custom woodworking, restoration, print and bind books, or mix stains and varnishes. Bring a group and take part in one of our hands-on workshops where you can blacksmith a nail or create your own ceramic tile.
