About Mad River Woodworks

Mad River Woodworks was established in 1981 and has been under new ownership as of January 2023. Our shop is located in the city of Arcata, on the northern coast of California just below the Oregon border.  We work and live in the heart of redwood country.

The goal of Mad River Woodworks is to produce the best possible millwork at a reasonable price using materials best suited for your project. Our customers range from homeowners and contractors, to preservationists and architects. We pride ourselves on our repeat business and referrals -- some of our continuing clients date back 15 to 20 years.  Of course, new customers are always welcome!

The catalog can be used for off the shelf projects, or as a springboard for your imagination. Custom work is gladly accepted.  We often work off photographs and architectural dimensions.

I look forward to personally helping you with your next project .
