Designed Different. Built Better.
Made in San Francisco from reclaimed wood.
Living the Dream
Wood Thumb is the vision of two brothers, Chris and David Steinrueck, who set out to make a living by bringing beautifully designed products that embody sustainability, craftsmanship, and ingenuity to the masses. It is a company of ongoing experiments. The perfect blend of entrepreneurial makers and designers, with a kick of cowboy innovation creating beautifully designed products that integrate sustainability, craftsmanship, and ingenuity.
From blending mediums like wood and metal to using traditional techniques with modern tools -- we bring a new take to everyday products. Our design aesthetic mixes rustic with contemporary minimalism. It’s like your local woodsman meet the cool bartender. It’s for the urban logger and the beer lover. It’s for the people who love those people. And it’s for people who just love unique and unexpected products.
We Know Wood
We are passionate about wood – especially wood with character. We use reclaimed redwood, old bourbon barrel staves, birdseye maple that had been hiding in a storage locker for years...and anything else that has a story to be told. We breathe new life into old wood, yet each product still features signs of its previous life. You can tell from the grooves to the colors -- It’s like touching the past.
Around the Shop
Our Craftsmanship is Showing
When you pick up our products, you can see how it’s made. There is no part that is unnecessary and everything is created with intention. You can clearly tell that it’s made by someone who loves what they do and shows it from start to finish. Each product has been handcrafted and made to last.
We are San Francisco
As makers located in the heart of the SOMA district, we are not satisfied with just making things but also cultivating a thriving and robust maker community. We designed our workshop to be a place of gathering for the community -- in throwing everything from late night design jams, brewing beers, or classes. We are the embodiment of the San Francisco spirit to create and collaborate on beautiful innovative products.
The Magic Sauce
We are only as good as our team. That is why all of our team members are skilled and passionate artisans in their own right. Commitment to keeping our team happy is a core tenet of how we operate.
