Form, Function and the Fantastic
Wormhole Workshop’s custom woodworking takes the minimalistic beauty of mid-century modern design and fuses it with new purpose. Whether it is an unusually shaped frame for an heirloom sweater, or a walnut dining table to awe your family for generations, we can work with you to make something uncommon.
A custom walnut frame with maple splines beautifully encases this family sweater, handmade by Jay’s grandmother using wool from the family sheep herd and accents from their fluffy samoyed dogs. Commissions for all sorts of framed encapsulations are available.
Shaping frames to suit the unusual needs of artwork is one of our specialties, and we have no shortage of strange, in-progress works at the studio. Sometimes we just like to sell off our experiments in the store to clear room for more mad science. The selection changes rapidly, so sign up for the mailing list if you want to stay in the loop.
Walnut Dining Table
This elegant 3x7’ table is crafted from beautiful, old black walnut sourced from Jay’s great-grandfather’s mill in Illinois. It is minimal design with sharply beveled edges makes the table appear to float from many angles, yet it is very solid, durable and strong, We love doing furniture commissions, but also make a limited run of newly designed works whenever possible.
