Quality, experience and craftsmanship.

As artisans in wood, our goal is to take our client’s vision and faithfully render it with the finest methods and materials available. 

We are adept at sourcing hard to find items such as sustainably harvested wood and specialty hardware from around the world.

To meet our clients’ expectations of aesthetic excellence and utility in the final product, we provide innovative problem solving.

As a California licensed contractor (Lic. # 513643), we can also provide and coordinate the services of allied trades, especially metal, glass, stone, and electrical work in order to provide a truly integrated product.

If LEED certification is your goal, please note that our products are fabricated in our production facilities in San Francisco. We can provide chain of custody documentation from our material suppliers if necessary.

We would like to thank the photographers that supplied some of our images. 

John Sutton for many of the Brayton, Brayton&Hughes, and BHD photos.

Joe Fletcher for the Kuth Ranieri work.
