About

FROM OUR HANDS WE BUILD ECO-CONSCIOUS, UNIQUE, CUSTOM FURNISHINGS.. FOR YOU!

WHAT WE MAKE is a family owned and operated reclaimed wood furnishings company.

WE started building handmade furniture over 15 years ago, and in the past 5 years have focused on using reclaimed materials. All of our furniture is finished with no or low VOC eco-friendly finishings which remove most of the toxins traditional furniture bring into your home.

WE take every measure to produce our reclaimed wood furniture in a sustainable fashion and pride ourselves in using green products.

WHAT WE MAKE, MAKES US...

WE build reclaimed wood furniture that will be the focal point of your home. Each piece has a unique industrial-modern feel that can be combined with any style or become your style. WE take pride in our designs and love building furniture inspired from the materials we use. Everything WE make, makes us who we are!

WHAT WE USE...
. reclaimed old-growth wood from midwestern barns
. hand welded metal
. lightweight, durable, special blend concrete
. green, non-voc, eco-friendly finishes

Please feel free to contact us with any questions on our furniture or for custom requests!
