Beech Tree Woodworks is a unique, sustainable woodworking company based out of Olympia, Washington. Started as Beech Tree Building Company in 2001 by Nic James, Beech Tree Woodworks is committed to creating high-quality, hand-crafted, custom-built cabinets, built-ins, and fine furniture. We at Beech Tree Woodworks work closely and collaboratively with our clients or our clients’ designers, architects and general contractors to create a look specific to our clients’ needs, tastes and desires. Beech Tree Woodworks’ mission is to create long-lasting, “green” cabinets, furniture or built-ins that will be passed down for generations.

The name Beech Tree Building Company was inspired by a lone beech tree growing on the property where Nic built his workshop. The tree’s distinct beauty—its breathtaking, ever-changing colors and cyclical patterns—symbolizes Beech Tree Woodworks’ dedication to using nature as an inspiration in the work we create and to sustainability.

Beech Tree Woodworks is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certified. We are committed to “green” building, using locally available wood products from ecologically-based forests. Our core belief encapsulates both a deep commitment to artistic design and to leaving the smallest footprint possible.
