Design PhilosophY

We love woodworking.  The experience is rewarding, even when it's difficult.  The smell, the feel, the satisfaction of bringing something to life and to explore with each new day is why we come to work. 

We pour our unique approach to working with wood into our collaborations with our clients.  Design is a team effort.  While we all are inspired individuals, architectural scale projects call for a team approach.  To this end we offer our version of events via our original product line, and collaboration through our custom work.

Our inspirations include de Stijl, Shaker, Wright, Nakashima, Nouveau, 19th century industry, nature, and of course....the humor that flows through the workshop.  Subtleties are important, that a piece or a finish shouldn't play out as an experience on first approach.  We want our work to be more than a visual pleasure, it should be a tactile one as well.  By experimenting with material texture and surfacing we want to encourage your curiosity.  We want you to touch our work, we want the experience of design to be something that pulls you in a subtle and satisfying way.  Design should be fun, it should be a reflection of the world we want to live in.  Beautiful, satisfying, curious, and well lived.

We have many years of experience in shops and on jobsites across the country, we can speak the language of architects and contractors.  We use old world knowledge and skill to inform our approach to design.  CNC, water jet, engineered products from plastics to custom glass we collaborate and play well with others across a broad spectrum of materials and tastes.  When we bring you into our world, into our shop, you won't be a stranger.
