Wood Bodies Custom Carpentry

Wood structures to live in, on, and around

I'll help you make your place more beautiful, more homey, and better organized, using small places efficiently, big places elegantly.

We'll develop pieces just for you, through friendly conversation.

I have a lifetime of experience with wood; decades of study of Space, Place and Home, art, engineering, and feng shui.

I'm based in San Pablo, above Berkeley in the SF East Bay. Call me to discuss a project and arrange for a site visit.

Let's have fun building something you really want!
