2017

As the year comes to an end, we wanted to take some time to reflect on all that this year as brought us. This is our 2nd year in business and we're just starting to get our gears in motion. 

We began the year traveling the US with Arbortech for the Woodworking Shows. While being away from the Urbn Timber shop was a struggle at times, we were lucky to meet & connect with fellow woodworkers across the US.  

Just as Spring came around, we expanded into 2 additional units in our current space. One of the units houses our metal shop where Josh Willford designs & creates custom steel bases to pair with live edge wood. The other unit - a slab showroom - where you can come browse 100's of unique live edge slabs available.

One of our favorite projects of the year was creating a 3'Wx10'L Book-matched Black Walnut Dining Table for Jim Shawley & Kayla Ziegler. This project combined unique design elements including a book-matched set of walnut, a waterfall leg on one end (that wasn't easy to glue together) and a custom X steel base.  

By the time we source the log, air & kiln dry the wood (about 18 months), it just now becomes available to the customer. We're finally at the point  where we can supply a broad selection of local Columbus live edge wood on a consistent basis. We were able to reinvest into our tools & machinery thus reducing lead time & increasing efficiency.

In 2018, we're looking forward to cutting into the logs we've gathered this year, traveling the US with Arbortech and a new Wood Wizz. We appreciate all of your support and wish you all a Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!
