Products and Services:
The Wood Cycle is a family owned business using locally harvested hardwoods to produce custom furniture, cabinetry and a wide array of other fine woodworking projects. Most of our wood comes from Dane County, including many urban logs. We are equipped to saw logs into lumber and dry them in our solar kiln, all to produce custom kitchens and other built-ins, fireplace mantles and other architectural features, plus custom furniture and smaller gift items. We often use a customer's own tree to furnish their home. All these operations occur on a converted farm 8.5 miles south of the beltline on Fish Hatchery Road; where our gallery, shop and sawmill are all located in restored farm buildings dating to the early 1900s.
The business name reflects our attitude. Besides an enjoyment of bicycling, we share a desire for "environmental efficiency" by using local resources, minimizing wastes and replanting what we harvest. This is my family heritage. The use of local woods for fine woodworking was customary throughout the history of the profession. Why export logs and import exotic woods or manufactured furniture when we already have Wisconsin's strong craftsman heritage and the most beautiful woods in the world growing right here in Dane County.
My family has a 150+ year Wisconsin heritage of craftsman artists and, of course, farmers. Personally, I learned woodworking from my grandfather, a cabinet maker, watchmaker and jeweler. He in turn learned the trade from his uncle, a craftsman described in the book "Craftsmen of Wisconsin" by Bertha Kitchell Whyte. Woodworking had been a lifelong hobby, a passion turned profession in 2002 after 20 years sitting in an office. My nephew joined me in the early days and we have since added 3 additional craftsmen with a passion for wood.
