We were recently featured in the Oregonian for a unique set of furniture we created from a tree in our backyard.

We had an old English Walnut tree that needed to come down and we were able to transform it into a stunning set of live edge pieces.

Paul Heijnen is a Dutch designer and craftsman whose work explores the relationship between materials and construction. His latest project, the Construction Cabinet is a beautiful and provocative statement about scale, function and workmanship.

We are currently having a sale on our furniture inventory and we wanted to spotlight some our favorite pieces.

The Celilo Sofa, upholstered in gorgeous Robert Allen Collina Ripple Fabric is one of the most beautiful pieces on the floor right now. The elegant fabric interacts perfectly with the clean lines and profile of the Celilo Frame. The Celilo Sofa is also incredibly comfortable and just the right size for stretching out.

Making its return to the showroom floor, our Upholstered Panel Bed is a luxurious choice for the bedroom. Shown in Western Walnut, the queen sized bed is upholstered in an elegant gray and white stripe fabric from Kravet.

We're in love with Renovo Bicycles and so are our customers! Ever since we brought our first Renovo bike onto the showroom floor, we've fielded an endless stream of compliments and questions.

Renovo is a Portland based company founded by father and son team Ken and Stuart Wheeler. The Wheelers started with just one model and now have six bicycle models and worldwide sales.

Our founder, Marc Gaudin, was recently honored as one of KATU's Everyday Heroes! Marc was spotlighted for his work building beds for children who suffer from seizures.

Marc was nominated for the award by Kristy Kilfoil, the mother of Mirabella, for whom we built the first bed. Check out the feature here.

The Joinery seems to be having a baby boom. First, just over a year ago, our finish team-lead Kelly and his wife Megan had a beautiful (and very tall) baby girl Lilly.  Apparently Lilly made parenthood look so tempting, 6 other Joinery employees decided to give it a try. Here’s Kelly, Megan and Lilly shopping for a Christmas tree:

We often get requests to help customers restore or repair a piece of furniture that means a great deal to them. We recently completed a project for a woman who wanted to rejuvenate the rocking chair she had used as a child.

We were able to piece the chair back together and restore it to its original (adorable) condition.
