Custom furniture from local, salvaged trees.

Green River Woods is a small woodworking studio and urban lumber operation in Asheville, NC. Founded by Matt Christie in 2008, we mill our own lumber from 100% locally salvaged trees, supply  live edge slabs and kiln dried lumber to fellow woodworkers and the public, produce our own small batch wood finish line, and work with clients all over the country to design and build custom furniture.

We value environmental sustainability as locally-grounded knowledge and praxis, to be brutally judged by the global future. We insist on fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, grain and finish, and enduring form and function.

Working cooperatively within a talented community of local arborists, woodworkers, sawyers, kiln operators, metalworkers, beekeepers, artists and makers, we strive to make creative and best use of fallen trees.

Bee Good Wood Oil®, a premium food safe wood finish, is still made one small batch at a time. By popular demand, our Bee Good Wood Butter™ is now too a small, good thing-in-the-world as a more concentrated paste wax, available in a variety of sizes and stores:  100% natural and easy-to-apply fine wood protection. Be good to your wood, and support your local beekeepers/pollinators.

Custom woodwork begins with your imagination and our experience. What would you like us to build?
