ONE WOOD is a woodworking company interested in a holistic approach to creating unique hand crafted furniture. When possible we salvage trees destined to rot, be mulched, or burned, and bring new life to its lumber. Each year at the end of winter we transplant seedlings into advantageous positions to accelerate the growth of the forest and protect its diversity. We believe understanding the forest is just as important as knowing how to shape its trees. We find great joy in working closely with our clients, designing and creating unique pieces that will be cherished for generations to come.
Patrick Murphy (Owner)
I started my woodworking journey in 2009, learning the craft at Conestoga college. Upon graduating, I began working in Toronto's film industry as a set carpenter, building all manner of wild creations. In 2016 I ventured away from film and had the honor of building some beautiful restaurants within Toronto. During this time, I felt a calling to build custom furniture and began to take on commissions ranging from dining tables, coffee table, chairs, stools, and other home furnishings. A current focus on salvaging trees, transplanting seedlings, artistic carvings, and hand-crafted furniture guides my future and the future of ONE WOOD.
