Wickham Solid Wood Studio
Custom Furniture Handmade in Beacon
Wickham Solid Wood studio is dedicated to exploring the expressive qualities of solid wood. We collaborate with our clients on custom projects that connect the thoughtful eye with the skilled hand.
The studio was founded in 2004. In addition to precision solid wood fabrication, we provide consultation, shop drawings, prototyping, coordination with other trades, delivery + installation. We maintain a large inventory of kiln-dried, live edge hardwood flitches. Studio visits are welcome, by appointment.
Owner Jessica Wickham’s evolution as a woodworker began in Japan, where she lived for five years and was deeply inspired by Japanese aesthetics and traditions of fine craft. In Tokyo she was introduced to Japanese hand planes and edge tools, hand-forged instruments that have been in continuous use for hundreds of years. Her experience of the convergence of traditional culture and modern design set her off on a path of discovery that brought her back to her home town, New York City and then to the Hudson Valley where she began milling live edge slabs and eventually to Beacon where the studio now operates.
