Real Trees || Real Wood || Really Handmade


“Bringing lasting beauty from the remainders of something as beautiful as a tree is what I love about professional woodworking.”

-Justin Nelson



When I began woodworking, I was an officer in the Marine Corps and, more recently, a firefighter on a wildfire Hotshot crew. The small business environment is so starkly different from the strict structure I became used to in those jobs, and I love the diversity of my responsibilities and working with my hands.
I operate Fernweh Woodworking from the studio on our property in Central Oregon. My motivation for woodworking has always been the beauty I find in wood grain. Nowadays, customers seek one-of-a-kind home decor, they aren’t satisfied only with what they find in big box stores. Woodworking is a time-honored craft, I want to do my part to keep it not only alive, but fresh.
