About Us

Operating out of Clinton, NY, Barnwood Designs is a collective of socially conscious artisans and woodworkers in Central New York state. At Barnwood Designs, we take a critical inquiry of the materials our society deems “waste”, and work to design ways for these materials to be re-used. Specifically, we reclaim wood from abandoned barns – beautiful, old-growth lumber that would otherwise succumb to rot – and craft these materials into functional, expressive pieces of furniture and decor.

Barnwood Designs is not just a wood shop; it is a proving ground for innovative modes of social and environmental transformation. Join us as we work to shape waste into beauty, empower our communities, and heal our earth! View our shops here!
