Urban Timberworks

Artisan Furniture from Salvaged Urban Trees™

Lightning Strikes a New Beginning

In 2005, lightning and a chance encounter with an Oregon white oak sparked the beginning of Urban Timberworks. In the heart of Portland, we came upon a felled oak destined for firewood, and knew we couldn't let it simply turn to ashes. Transforming urban wood into contemporary furniture thus formed our mission: We turn reclaimed wood into custom, modern furniture.

Our Purpose

We find inspiration and enjoyment from nature and express this passion in our woodwork. Salvaging trees from the urban forest is how we do our part to help protect the wilderness we love and feed our obsession to work with wood. We hope the treasures we create inspire a spirit of preservation for our natural world.
