We source much of our lumber from locally-salvaged trees that would otherwise become firewood or waste. Local varieties include: elm, ash, cottonwood, box elder, birch, willow, and anything we can get our hands on. We believe all species of tree have the potential to become something both beautiful and durable.

Additionally, we work with a variety of commercially-available domestic and exotic lumber, including: common softwoods, black walnut, alder, oak, ipe, teak, and tigerwood.

With years of experience crafting exceptional and unique wood pieces, Sapphire Woodworks has something for every taste. Our attention to detail and unrivaled customer service sets us apart, and our commitment to local sourcing and crafting helps to keep local business thriving. Our aim is to exceed expectations in every way- come see the Sapphire difference!


Live edge table design options include: species, plank width, table base and finish. We have sources to work with virtually any species suitable for tabletops, including both hard and softwoods, as well as new and reclaimed lumber. In some cases, tabletops can be constructed from one solid piece of lumber, though most designs use 2 or 3 planks for the top. We offer table base options with both rustic and modern designs that utilize solid posts, industrial steel or logs (upon availability).


We build completely custom, solid wood counters shaped to fit your space. Popular hardwoods include: walnut, maple, and cherry, but we can use any type of wood desired. We offer custom cutouts for sinks and other accessories. Formats include: live edge, wide plank, face grain, edge grain, and end grain.


A labor of love
