Urban Timberworks

Artisan Furniture from Salvaged Urban Trees™

Our design and woodworking discipline draws from past and modern masters who sought ways to express the inherent beauty of wood for wood’s sake. Urban Timberworks follows in the footsteps of fine woodworking pioneers such as: George Nakashima, James Krenov and Sam Maloof

Our practice of re-sawing precious slabs felled trees reveals an exquisite array of book-matched patterns that we join together utilizing a variety of fine woodworking techniques. Our eco-friendly wood finishes help ensure that each piece of fine wood furniture that leaves the Urban Timberworks workshop stands the test of time. 

Most custom furniture projects begin with a visit to our workshop in Southeast Portland, where we stock a plentiful supply of sustainable hardwoods and softwoods, sourced mostly from Portland's urban forests. Once you make your salvaged wood slab or stump selection, we pair it with a modern design that matches your aesthetic. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of contemporary wood furniture custom made for your home or office.
