Samara Woodcraft and Design LLC

A ‘samara’ is the winged seed of the maple or elm tree. We used to call them helicopters. They are a beautiful example of form and function in balance, and one of my earliest memories of design in nature, mixed with play.

Samara Woodcraft and Design is here for you to create any design solution for your space. I can help you think through design, materials and building methods that align with your values and aesthetic, and that feel great. We can build small structures, furniture or objects to enhance your indoor or outdoor living spaces.

I love working with wood the most, for it is alive, and it reveals its life story as you carve. From its growthplace in the forest or a city street on out, it continues to absorb and express the elements of its environment forever.
As soon as you learn to read wood, you see all kinds of stories.
