Designed Different. Built Better.
Made in San Francisco from reclaimed wood.
Living the Dream
Wood Thumb is the vision of two brothers, Christopher and David Steinrueck, who set out to make a living by building beautifully designed products that embody sustainability, craftsmanship, and ingenuity. 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 make life better - and a little more fun.
Our design aesthetic mixes rustic with contemporary minimalism and the beauty of reclaimed wood. From blending materials like wood and metal to combining traditional techniques with modern tools -- we find ways to bring a fresh take to everyday products. It’s for the urban woodsman inside you. It's for the contemporary craft beer lover, or high tech aficionado with the antique desk. 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. We breathe new life into old wood, yet each product still shows hints of its previous life. You can tell from the grooves to the colors -- It’s like honoring the past and giving it a new life in the present.
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 feel it was shaped and finished by someone who loves their work and that dedication shows from start to finish. Each product is designed to enhance your life 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 gathering place for our community -- in throwing everything from late night design jams, brewing beers, or classes. We embody the San Francisco spirit that seeks to create, collaborate and innovate.
The Magic Sauce
Each of our team members are skilled and passionate artisans in their own right. Honoring each person's abilities and contribution is a core tenet of how we operate.
