Our Story

The Joinery began as a furniture refurbishing and repair business in 1982. From those early experiences, we learned how a product’s design impacts not just aesthetics, but performance and longevity as well; and how classic woodworking techniques influence both product quality and beauty. These important lessons informed our evolution as a company.

Today we are proud to employ team of highly skilled and dedicated people to design, build and sell our furniture. We use time-honored joinery techniques to create masterful pieces in a variety of modern and traditional designs. We challenge ourselves to continually improve, innovate, and create furniture that is as functional and durable as it is beautiful. Our Portland, Oregon woodshop is a paragon of balancing modern technology with traditional hand craftsmanship. We invite you to drop in and watch our craftspeople at work.  

The products you will see here represent only part of our offering. If you need modifications to a standard piece to make it perfect for your home – or you have a vision of something entirely new – we invite you to talk to us: our designers and craftsmen will work with you to make sure you get exactly the look, feel and function you had in mind.

The Joinery makes significant investments in environmental performance and the health of our community.  We are a certified B-Corp™ and have become a regular on its annual Best for the Environment list. Our company and its people actively participate in a wide range of local and regional causes, and we are proud of their many notable contributions.
