About

Handcrafted Wooden Wares

Welcome to the Whitney B. Woodshop Etsy Shop!

I'm Whitney, a part-time woodworker and full-time college professor. When I'm not grading papers and teaching, I'm usually making a mess in my small Boston apartment. ("Honey, there are wood chips in the bed again," is a common refrain in our home. My partner is, obviously, very patient.)

I came to woodworking fairly recently, in part because I wanted to build strong, modern furniture at a more reasonable price, and because I needed a way to manage my anxiety. I started with bookshelves, moved on to media consoles and dining tables, and then scaled way back to utensils, cutting boards, and other custom projects.

Each piece is designed by me and made with the intent to preserve and amplify the natural beauty of the wood. Because all items are handmade, every item houses subtle variations that signify a very human element of handmade work that I value more than absolute uniformity.

Aside from woodworking, I have an affinity for coffee, reading, dogs, flannel shirts, combat boots, and whiskey sours.

Feel free to check out my Etsy shop, and to follow or tag me on Facebook and Instagram @whitneybwoodshop

Thanks so much for stopping by!
