Portland is known for being both crafty and outdoorsy so it makes perfect sense that we would be home to one of the world’s most beloved utility tool makers. Founded in 1983, Leatherman manufactures its famous multi-tools, knives, lights and accessories right here in Portland.

Simple geometrics can be a great choice for upholstery, because while they add visual texture up close, from a distance and in the expanse of a room, they tend to blend together to create a united color scheme. Our Celilo Stool recently have come onto the showroom floor, rounding out the Celilo Dining Group. The spare, modern lines lend themselves to a spot of color to break up the graphic quality of the chair. For the stools we have on the floor, we chose a small Robert Allen pattern called Motivation, in Prussian. This fabric is available in 4 colorways, and has a delicate quality to it that make it ideal for upholstered pieces that don’t need bold statements, but where a little interest is desired.

Motivation might look fantastic paired with another highly textured piece, like the Soliloquy pattern Ondule. This unusual pattern brings thoughts of water, or sand dudes, and has such sophisticated and subtle feel to it. The patterns, while contrasting, work together to bring out their individual beauty.

How long have you been working with The Joinery?

Almost 6 years.

Here at the Joinery, we work hard to minimize the amount of waste created by each piece that we build. One of the most useful and beautiful solutions that we’ve come up with is our end grain butcher blocks. These can be made to fit on kitchen counters, islands or bathrooms. They are available in End Grain and Edge Grain and in any of our standard wood species. Prices are by the Square Foot. Please call our showroom for currently square foot price details.

The Banjo Chair has finally made it’s way all the way through the shop, and we love how it turned out. Based on an antique chair owned by a long time customer, we designed and built a custom chair for him for his hobby, playing the Banjo.

The chair has many parts and employs some fairly elaborate construction techniques, including steam bent portions that took some doing to get right. Here you can see the steaming process, and an attempt gone bad:

The Harpoon House is an innovative dwelling built by Portland based designers, Matt Kirkpatrick and Katherine Bovee. The couple constructed their home with a focus on efficient methods and sustainable materials.

We are drawn to the Harpoon House’s distinctive wood siding which was made using mostly FSC ® certified wood.
