Gear Grove – Our Story

My husband and I married in 2009, had our first daughter at the end of that year, and moved into our new house a year later. The next two years were filled with home renovations and the birth of our second daughter. During these years, and many before, we worked regular, 8-5 jobs. I spent years in IT and my husband in Sales.

We often talked: If we could do anything, what would it be?

In 2012, we formed Gear Grove. It comes from our love of hand-crafted wood designs, and photography.

What’s to love about our design products?

Each one has a story; a story about where the wood came from, the ideas behind the designs, and when it was made. In other words, our customers know that the red oak bench they are sitting on was carefully made from a fallen tree from the north woods of Wisconsin. We like to think of it as a connection.

Most of the wood we use is repurposed or reclaimed. It often comes from the land at our cabin, shipping pallets, or salvaged from houses or buildings ready to be demolished. Our tables, benches, headboards, made from maple or oak, all have a history.

Our most inspirational project?

The Pavilion
Over a series of 3 months we, along with family, spent every weekend at our cabin to build what is now the gathering place for friends and family. Everyone worked tirelessly, salvaging trees, de-barking them by hand, and eventually standing them upright to hold up the structure. Those 6 trees are now the foundation of the pavilion, and on top of them are 8x8 beams lifted by a hand-made crane. The decking and shingled roof came next, followed by the bar and lighting.

A month later we had our annual party, and it rained. It rained all day. The pavilion had never had a greater use than to not only shield all of our guests from the weather, but to bring people closer together to enjoy that day, and each other’s company.

The idea of creating something with soul is what drives us. A table with old wood, aged, and imperfect, or that bench from the fallen tree now has life serving as a relaxation place.

A story and a promise, that all of our products are: Made from the heart with nature in mind.

We love what we do. We hope you love what you see.

Additional policies and FAQs
Natural Variations:
Reclaimed wood is a natural product and may have feature variations inherent to salvaged materials such as natural color variation, visible nail heads or nail holes, knots, hairline cracks,oil stains, and waving.
Customers should expect slight variations from photos.

Change Requests. We begin to process custom orders as soon as they are placed. Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to make any changes to your order. We will make every effort to accommodate your change request. However, we cannot guarantee changes can be made after your order is placed.

Pallet Furniture:
Our pallet furniture is made from reclaimed shipping pallets. The wood is sanded and stained or protected with a clear coat. These tables have a beautiful, rustic, natural look. Pallet boards are matched for thickness within 1/8 inch of each other. For this reason, some tables may not be completely flat or smooth.

Care and Cleaning:
To maintain the quality of your wood furniture, do not expose it to direct sunlight or excessive temperatures; extreme changes in humidity can cause warping. Use coasters, to protect the furniture surface. Use protective mats under hot dishes. Use a protective pad when writing with a pen. Blot spills immediately with a clean cloth. Dust often using a soft, clean, lint–free cloth. Use a non–silicone and non–wax polish; do not use soap, water or wax.
