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.
Need we say more? You’ll be richer in September by the amount you save in getting your orders in now. So if there’s a place in your house that’s been pining for something in handcrafted hardwood from The Joinery, it pays to procrastinate no more.
From in-stock inventory to pieces custom-built especially for you, what you order this month is at pre-inflation prices on orders delivered by the end of this year. So why wait? This is an inside tip made especially for to-day traders!
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.

Introducing our new kitchen multi-tasker!
The Joinery is proud to roll out (on locking casters!) our latest design! Our Butcher Block Island Table for kitchen use provides a great recipe - combining versatility, incredible beauty, and The Joinery’s incomparable craftsmanship.
The Small Butcher Block Island with End Grain in Oregon White Oak.
These versatile butcher block kitchen tables can be used for food preparation, double as a kitchen table, or simply add warmth, character and storage to any kitchen.
They come in three different sizes – and can be made from any of our six standard wood species in either edge grain or end grain.
The bottom stretcher makes for a convenient footrest and allows stools to be tucked in under the table to further maximize space. Or, opt for a bottom shelf for additional storage. Plus, locking casters make it easy to move around as circumstances require.
The Joinery is proud to again be named one of Oregon Business magazine’s “100 Best Green Workplaces.” This year we moved up to #39 on the list, a great validation of our continued efforts to improve our environmental performance and the lives of our employees.

The Winning Customer
A New Home for Premium Furniture
When Portland’s premier maker of handcrafted, solid wood furniture, the Joinery, decided to transform their downtown pop-up shop into a permanent showroom, every square inch was considered.
"We put an enormous amount of heart and planning into designing the space so that it would reflect what we do best, so that it would be a thoughtful representation of how we work," said owner Jon Blumenauer.
Every woodworker at the Joinery contributed at least one permanent design element to the 4,700-square-foot space. These pieces included a custom whitewashed reclaimed fir and western walnut reception desk, a rift-sawn white oak kitchen, and a live-edge barn door featuring Krownlab’s Baldur hardware system.
