“For a growing number of us, it has come to a point where having something unique means more and more. We’ve shopped in catalogues and surrounded ourselves with machine-made pieces that are inferior in quality and material, from across an ocean. We shortchange ourselves when surrounded by these things. Goods with a fresh design, a maker’s touch, and a quality material – this is a truer value. These are goods that give back.”
Caleb Woodard (born in 1979) is a self-taught designer and second-generation furniture maker who was introduced to his love of working with wood as a young boy when his father helped him carve small animals from basswood. He founded his original studio and began building custom furniture in Washington, DC in 2005. In 2013 he returned to his hometown in Springfield, Tennessee where he works once again with his father in their small studio in the historic district.
His designs continually push the boundaries of form and function with a passion for the organic. He personally designs and builds each piece.
“And let the beauty of the
Lord our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.”
