Urbanwood Studio is located in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
I design and create live-edge furniture pieces. I purposely do not level the surface of the lumber by any use of a planer, but rather, meticulously hand-sand all of the edges and surfaces to release and reveal the natural beauty found within each particular piece of wood.
Every piece of furniture is functional and yet, in its simplicity and distinctive form is a work of art. I strive to liberate and expose the hidden beauty of every individual piece of lumber used in creating my benches and tables. Therefore, I intentionally retain the natural voids, cracks and imperfections present within each section of wood to accentuate and enhance its unique character. Since the design of the top of each bench and table is exclusively the natural shape and grain of the tree; every top is unique and truly one-of-a-kind.
