Materials Matter

Because we respect the planet and want to provide you with the very best quality products, we use the best materials our Earth provides. If you ask any of our craftsmen, they’ll tell you about their favorite wood to work with, and the memories associated with certain species. Yes, we take our wood very seriously at Glacial Wood.

Every custom, made to order wood manufacturing project comes with its own nuances and specifications. There’s the right material to meet those expectations, too, and our experts will show you why. Just as there are no two custom woodturning projects alike, there are no two wood species alike either. Knowing each of their characteristics and defining elements is something we take great joy in. It’s a beautiful job – someone has to do it.

Our lean manufacturing methods focus on the finished product, not maintaining a warehouse full of inventory. We stock raw materials. Period. We can order and work with any wood species that is legally attainable. We craft stunning custom products by creating wood blanks with a combination of any species.

Wood is organic, non-manmade, and you don’t know what’s inside. It’s a beautiful gamble each and every time we craft a piece of raw wood. As an artifact of nature, wood defies replication. Working with wood and meticulously refining our craft for three decades is a testament to Glacial Wood’s passion and stance as craftsmen.

Woodturning is a literal feast for the senses. The grain, the scent, and the way sawdust falls like confetti all celebrate the vision of each customer.
