Chris, Leigh, Aaron, and Elliot are the heart and soul of Spoken Wood Design. We work as a team every day at our workshop in a small town in southwestern Wisconsin, with an occasional visit from one of our dogs. 

We start by selecting the perfect cut of wood for each piece, and then we plane, sand, and apply finish (or not!) to reveal the wood's character and personality. 

The history of our wood:

Our lumber is trimmed from massive hand-hewn beams salvaged from old barns in Wisconsin and Iowa. Amish crews disassemble the barns and salvage as much as they can. This wood was cut from old-growth trees in the 19th century by hand saw and ax, and then shaped by hand with adzes and muscles. 

Our mission:

Bringing one-of-a-kind, sustainable beauty into your home.
