Wood + Grit was launched when rustic and pallet furniture had just started to gain popularity.
Growing up in Milford, Jared has always done carpentry work working along side his twin brother Joe. While operating his own landscaping business, Jared began making pallet furniture in his spare time. Little by little it became more popular and demands got greater. His very first pieces were made as gifts for friends and family for Christmas, 2013, in the comfort of his cold garage early winter.
After starting with small pallet wood items such as wooden flags, coat racks, shelving, wine racks and signs, the business quickly expanded to larger pieces such as coffee tables, end tables, armoire closets and kitchen tables! Eventually running out of room and deciding to take the new business on full time, Wood + Grit moved into it's first commercial unit of 1,200 square feet. After only a year in the location we then moved to a 4,000 square foot unit in Milford where our showroom and manufacturing shop is now located.
With the expansion of the company, we now have a creative, talented and easy to work with staff devoted to creating one of kind, hand crafted pieces for homes all over Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and around the country. Also, we've expanded with our on-site crews, working with designers in residencies along with commercial locations.
Starting from nothing, Wood + Grit as has grown from a small part time hobby into a full time custom furniture shop and retail store in a short amount of time.
