The Joinery is partnering with students enrolled in the Architecture and Design program at Sabin-Schellenberg, a professional technical high school serving the North Clackamas school district, to showcase and auction their innovative creations made from scrap lumber donated by The Joinery. Students will use industry leading 3D modeling software and digital manufacturing equipment to convert scrap wood into consumer products such as puzzles, coasters, and artwork.

Our new Jarvis Standing Desk and Jarvis Conference Tables infuse movement into your workspace, which helps fuel creativity and engagement. Designed in collaboration with Fully, another Portland-based B Corp, these pieces provide a unique and sophisticated touch to any active workspace, not to mention a testament to our shared love of creating quality products using the best practices for the environment.

When A to Z Wineworks began looking for a conference table for the new building overlooking its vineyards in the Willamette Valley, The Joinery entered the conversation due in part to our status as a fellow B Corp. A to Z wanted particular functionality in the table, but also a product that incorporated their company values around environmental performance and community engagement. The result is a custom modular table that provides optimum flexibility as well as rich beauty.

There is definitely a family resemblance between the Sebastian Bookcases and the Sebastian End Table, including racetrack-shaped legs, a light and open feel, and contrasting end grain plugs that provide a beautiful design feature. But in contrast to their cousin, the Sebastian Bookcases are made with thick solid wood shelves that provide a sense of heft and sturdiness. The shelves cantilever beyond the legs and are evenly spaced to keep the pieces visually clean and symmetrical.  They come in two standard sizes, providing versatility to accommodate any space. Come see the Sebastians at either our Woodstock or Yamhill showroom.

This holiday season we partnered with Colorhouse Paint to transform our Hayden dining table and chairs into three distinct holiday looks by changing up the color pallete thru the paint and table settings. With Colorhouse's direction and amazing paints our Hayden dining set transforms into the perfect gathering space in all three looks.

PASTEL PINK PALLET

Colorhouse Paint used their SPROUT .06 as the starting point for this amazing pink vignette and paired it with ceramics by Eutectic Gallery, Icon Ceramics and accessories from Crate and Barrel.

The design intent behind the Hayden Dining Table was to create a simplified trestle table with an overall clean and light form. Unlike normal kitchen duty, in table construction we kept things clean by removing the aprons.  We focusd on subtle details including exposed splines at the top and bottom of the legs, and a slight angle to the bottoms of the feet that keeps the table light and elevated.

A graduate of Maine College of Art, where she studied woodworking and design, Olivia began her professional woodworking career on the East Coast. She honed her skills on several challenging projects, including building a house in Maine. On an island. In the winter. While living in Massachusetts.

We figured this was pretty good training for understanding how climate can affect wood furniture (among other things!), and were very excited when Olivia joined our team two years ago.
