August 2016

The Woodstock Community Business Association (WCBA) dedicated Sunday, September 11th, to their 2nd annual Woodstock Gives Back event, and The Joinery is happy to be involved again this year by partnering with Friends of Trees and hosting a "Build your own birdhouse" kids activity.

Join us for a day dedicated to local nonprofits. On Sunday, September 11, 2016 from 10.00-2.00, over 20 businesses throughout the Woodstock area will be raising funds and generating awareness for the charity or non-profit of their choice. Portland is widely known for its scores of active and empowered neighborhoods. This year we have again chosen Friends of Trees as our non-profit partner.

Friends of Trees has been caring for city trees and green spaces in Pacific Northwest communities since 1989. The Joinery is excited to partner with them by donating the planting of five trees for every furniture purchase that day.

Stop by and get a photo with Garry, make a Bird House with one of our craftsmen and get more information on Friends of Trees and enjoy the lively Woodstock entertainment.

To learn more about all the events going on that day visit the Woodstock Give Back Facebook page here.

Whether you’re deliberately downsizing your living spaces or not, square footage comes at a premium these days, and you can’t always get what you want. Drop by The Joinery, however, and you just might find you get what you need: our new Klamath Dining Table is designed to let you dine in style in nooks, crannies and other smaller spaces.

Its dimensions are smaller and its anatomy simple — but its design and construction are to our same uncompromising standards. This table features a radiused edge detail on the top, along with tapered legs, and a slight angle at the bottom of the supporting stretchers. The Klamath Dining Table is 42" round and 30" tall, perfect for the smaller space dining experience.

Last Chance for 2015 Pricing

Psst. Here’s an arresting insider trading tidbit we’re only telling our closest friends and constant readers: when our new catalog comes out in September, new furniture pricing will officially go into effect.


We’re delighted to introduce our newest addition to our prized Celilo family of living room and dining room furniture: the Celilo Media Console. We think it encapsulates the highest expression of the Celilo design theme, originally developed by Liz Holoubek in 2010.

Available in two standard size options  — an 18”x49”x20” 2-drawer version and 18”x72”x20” version with additional center flip-down door — the Celilo Media Console was designed by Taryn Johnson to fit within the Celilo look-and-feel while casting its own distinctive spell.


In July Robin, our Shop Foreman, celebrated his 20-year anniversary with us. He’s legendary in these parts as “The Chair Guy” for his particular finesse building those most complex pieces of furniture. As one of his compatriots said, it goes to show that like the furniture we build, quality lasts and lasts. Yeah, we may still give him grief. We’re as apt to call him “Ruban” or “Rubinsky” or “Bobarino” as his real name — but these days, “Bobarino, Sir!” is always implied.
