Barehanded Woodworks is a company that stays true to the craft of hand making unique items. Each piece is designed, shaped, and finished by hand. We strive to make sustainable, eco friendly products that will last a lifetime. A couple principles we live by are tree-to-table, and reclaim-to-fame. Recycling fallen trees and decrepit buildings is one of our heart lines.
Our design teeters between contemporary, rustic, and raw classics. We intend to provide uncommon products that are conversion pieces. Each and every item has a unique story. The materials that are used may be reclaimed from an 1800s barn that once was the town office, or the live edge slab may be the family tree that you grew up swinging on as a kid.

As well as countless breweries and restaurants such as IB Forum, El Tianguis Rolled Taquitos, Attitude Brewing, Ale Smith Brewing, Pure Project, Raglands, Mishmash, Ryan Brothers Coffee, and more.
