Pieces Koppen Woodworks philosophy is to honor the life of a tree by giving it a second life, to be considered an heirloom and appreciated over time. Each piece is unique and handmade using traditional joinery techniques tools with high-quality oil finishes, respecting the tree's origin and preserving its natural state. Furniture is custom made for the home or workspace and will be branded with the signature Koppen Woodworks logo. Materials Material is sourced from local timber suppliers across Ohio and all wood is personally selected by Jake. He has strong connections with local mills and suppliers who assist him in finding the highest quality materials. Staying true to the Koppen Woodworks philosophy, Jake searches for hard wood from trees having been harvested near the end of their life so not to disrupt nature.
