Spire Woodshop

Spire Woodshop is located in Gloucester, MA and is a collaboration of two. We create a variety of wooden items ranging from spoons to furniture, each piece individually crafted. We aim to provide our community with handmade objects that are as beautiful as they are functional. Most of our products are created from locally sourced urban lumber, trees that are already being cut down or would have otherwise been discarded. We are interested in not only giving trees a second life but also telling a story of the community we live in through the furniture and goods that we create.
