Modern Traditional Woodcrafts

Not your typical woodshop!  Located in Rochester, MN, everything is made using traditional hand tools only, unplugged, without power tools. 

Unique Design

Designs inspirations from traveling in SE Asia.  No plywood or particle board, and leaving the machines behind, these woodcrafts have a handmade look and feel.  Everything is made using solid woods with traditional, hand-cut joinery, and a natural finish.

Safe & Sustainable

Materials are natural & sustainable, safe for us and safe for the environment.  Finishes are made from natural oils and waxes.  With easy maintenance, they will outlast unnatural finishes.  Selected wood types are local and sustainable.
