Plank Road Woodworks specializes in custom designed furniture for residential, office and retail settings. We are comfortable leading the design process with clients of all backgrounds to produce unique and well-made pieces of lasting aesthetic and functional value.
We prefer a simple, contemporary aesthetic with clean lines and balanced proportions. We emphasize beautiful wood grain and handcrafted details like exposed joinery, hand-cut pegs, or simple arcs. Our work is inspired by modern styles with natural materials, the Arts and Crafts movement, Japanese design and craftsmanship as well as Shaker and vernacular farmhouse styles.
Designing a piece of custom handcrafted furniture (or other custom wood project) is a collaborative process, and all suggestions and inputs are encouraged and welcomed along the way. It all starts with an idea that strives to be beautiful, functional, and durable. We sketch concepts on paper and design via 3D software to explore and communicate options. We discuss the balance between form and function and seek feedback before focusing on an approach and refining a final design. Most clients find the design stage enjoyable and because of it, the end product all the more satisfying.
Trademarks include simple, clean, contemporary design; premium hardwood; fine craftsmanship; and genuine customer service.
