Our Story

“In the course of reclaiming lumber and materials over 35 years for The Woods Company,
I gathered up a phenomenal amount of old things.
Foundry patterns, machine parts, architectural salvage,
antique machines, and beautiful wood.”

The Artifactory warehouse holds a curious collection of sculptural materials and industrial furniture, as well as a museum of the American Woodworking industry.

“The late 19th through the mid 20th century was an incredible  time in America. The rapid manufacturing growth and intense innovation of the industrial revolution pulled our country’s economy up by its agrarian roots and propelled it into the modern age.​
Today, as American industry declines in the age of corporate global manufacturing,
we honor the past by collecting machines and artifacts from early industrial sites.
Reclaiming gorgeous antique wood is just one part of the picture.
The ARtifactory, The Woods Company’s latest venture, tells the story of our industrial past.
We create new and interesting products from unexpected sources and materials, 
and supply artists, sculptors and designers with rare and distinctive materials.”

Classic Machine Works – our machinery company,
lists our inventory of vintage & production woodworking machines for sale.
