Turning Green Organic Woodworking
Turning Green is best known for natural wooden frames made using sustainable lumber and reclaimed city trees. Our commitment to green goes deeper than just our name. The concept of our designs, our woodworking practices, and our business mindset all focus on organic themes.
Our main source for wood is Horigan Urban Forest Products - a family operated business, which mills and kiln dries Chicago area trees that come down for reasons such as storms, bugs, or disease.
The concept of our designs originates with nature itself, and our goal is to make functional wooden art while accenting the unique and individual beauty of each tree. True to nature, our work uses the tree’s bark, coloring, knots, worm scars, and/or moss as a focal point, making our work organic in form as well as in its origin.
