when we saw one of WTT's bookshelves here on etsy, we thought it was exactly what we were after, only smaller. so we contacted anthony and, over email, agreed to a custom size and timing. a few weeks later we are happy to say that we have a piece we really love, that will last us a lifetime, and that the experience of working with anthony to get exactly what we wanted could not have been easier. this was, in our opinions, a big piece, and one that would show any cut corners. there are none - it is beautifully crafted, clearly made with care, and the work of someone with tremendous skill and attention to detail. couple that with the fact that anthony was/is super nice and has a great dog, and you've got the ingredients for our next furniture commission, should the need arise. couldn't be more impressed.

I was searching for a unique table that fit our space and worked functionally with our kitchen. The WakeTheTree Etsy site was the only place I could find that had the product craftsmanship and design I envisioned to enhance our space. WakeTheTree was a great experience overall due to excellent communication, attention to agreed upon time line, and presentation of products. The table arrived this week packaged extremely well with clear directions on assembly. We are thrilled with the artfulness of the table-great proportions, beautiful materials, and even better than we expected. Kudos to WakeTheTree
Before my love of furniture, there was love of trees.
As a boy, I climbed them, dreamed in their branches, and napped in their shade: growing side by side, the trees and I. Their constant presence intrigued me - the way they slowly evolve, barely changing year to year, connecting human lifespans. We remember them by the tables we eat from, the desks we work at, the floors we walk upon, and the shelves from which we choose books. We are indebted to trees; After all, they give us life.
My love for wood was reinforced at a young age when my father shared the craft of furniture with me. He taught me what it meant to work with my hands, paying close attention to detail, to build good solid furniture that would last. I spent my days and evenings in his shop, learning the skill, experimenting with the medium, creating from my imagination and often just sweeping the floor.
Wake the Tree Furniture Co. was born in 2014 out of a desire to better people’s lives through this skill. We believe in simple, practical furniture design; furniture that elevates the natural beauty of wood while fulfilling a specific need. There is something intuitive about crafting wood into furniture: awakening the tree by making it into a beautiful object that can become a part of your everyday life.
I hope to talk with you soon.

Frequently asked questions
Which shipping service do you use?
Smaller pieces will ship USPS, FedEx or UPS. Larger furniture pieces will be shipped common carrier freight or with other delivery companies. Please contact us for upgrades such as white glove delivery service.
Why isn't my tracking information up to date?
Please understand that once your package leaves our hands, we have no control over the postal delivery service. Postal tracking is spotty at best, as they rely on drivers to physically scan the label and sometimes the scan is missed. As a result, tracking may lag behind the actual package. We find it best to look at the timeline provided by the postal delivery service as a guideline, not a sure thing. If your order is time-sensitive, please consider purchasing an available upgrade. In rare cases, packages may stall at your local post office before going out for final delivery. in these circumstances, you may have to visit your local post office in person to claim your package.
How long does international shipping take?
All International orders are shipped Priority unless an upgrade to Express shipping is purchased (we recommend purchasing this upgrade if your order is time-sensitive). Priority shipping is estimated to arrive in 6-10 days, but this is not a guarantee. International shipping is unfortunately a little unpredictable and, in some cases, can take a considerable amount of time. Although international shipping usually takes about 2 weeks, packages can take up to 4-5 weeks due to possible Customs delays. Please note that international tracking information is often incorrect. Once your package leaves the United States, USPS transfers responsibility to your country’s postal service.
Can my item be marked as a 'gift' on Customs forms?
It is illegal for us to forge information (such as claiming a lower price or marking packages as a gift) in order to avoid Customs fees. If the item is a gift and you are an international customer, we suggest that the item be shipped to you rather than directly to the gift recipient, so that the gift recipient is not made responsible for these possible fees.
Can furniture specs be modified after the order is placed?
Furniture is made-to-order and the process begins shortly after we receive your order. We may or may not be able to make modifications to your order depending upon where we are in the build process. Please make sure details and dimensions are correct prior to purchase.
