Hi, I’m CJ Marquardt
and I’ve been passionate about woodworking since I build my first desk over 20 years ago.
While I endeavor to expand my woodworking experiences, my current focus is on unique handcrafted furniture and kitchen pieces.
In addition to my woodworking, I am also a Professional Structural Engineer. I have found that this relationship between woodworking and engineering has provided me with a more complete understanding of the behavior of wood and how I can construct unique pieces using that knowledge.
In addition to kitchen and furniture pieces, I’ve also created carved signs for various organizations, including Ramsay Signs and the Oregon Zoo.
I enjoy adding personal accents to each individual piece that I create, and I love to incorporate special details that will catch your eye.
I’m also an active member of the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers and attribute much of my skill and expertise to this organization. I’ve studied with numerous professionals, including Alexander Anderson of Madrone Studio and finishing expert Michael Dresner.
My workshop is located in the small town of Scappoose, Oregon, where I live on a farm with my beautiful wife and three sons.
I invite you to explore my Portfolio page to see some examples of my work. If you have any questions or would like to request a custom order, please click here to request a quote or go to my Contact page.
