Our Guiding Principle
"If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children."
This is Hakarat for the Performing Arts guiding principle. We also believe that art is the shortest/quickest path to learning. Through art, we tap children's curiosity and empower their creative expression. Over time they develop self-awareness and focus, communication and collaboration skills, and an inherent joy. This consequently leads to less violence and destruction in society and in the world. It also opens each child to unique opportunities of shaping their life for good.
Joe was raised in Canada by Alaskan parents and later moved to Utah in order to pursue a career in woodworking. Being disappointed with the quality of modern furniture in general, he founded Wooden Beavers.
James was a former biker, but wanted to do more with his life. In 2012, he moved from Florida to Utah. He met Joe at a cafe and soon joined Wooden Beavers. James also works with kids and teaches everything he knows about wood and nature.
When Jack was born, he was left in the cold by his parents. What could have been a tragic story, turned positive as a Grizzly Bear couple took care of him and taught him all he knows about nature. His skills are the best, but he doesn't say a lot.
Wooden Beavers Playground
When we start a new project, you can expect 100% quality and craftsmanship. All projects include no-nonsense tools and materials. On top of this, we also make sure to give an authentic appearance and that includes a well groomed beard.
No construction job would seem authentic without us wearing Lumberjack Shirts. No matter how hot it is outside, you should expect us to wear our signature red and black lumberjack shirts. On special occasions, we wear blue denim shirts.
When getting real close, you will be greeted with the true essence of masculine woodworking. A sent including (but not limited to) hints of coffee, leather, pinewood, tobacco, grease, oil, old tools, rust and of course, molted old forest cabin.
The new owners of Idaho Tea & Coffee House wanted to give their place a complete makeover. We turned this boring looking cafe into a remarkable place. Both inside and outside, we built new furniture made to last heavy use and bad weather. All the wood used for the project was delivered from a nearby sawmill.
