Made in Minnesota

It has been almost a decade of log furniture creations for us here at Vienna Woodworks! We started out in Superior, Wisconsin and are now located in Waseca, MN. While the two locations are quite different, the beauty of the Midwest continues to inspire us on a daily basis.
The Superior, WI location, especially along Lake Superior's North and South Shores, is something that we will always cherish. The rolling hills, abundance of pine trees and the atmosphere of Lake Superior is difficult to describe, and is one of my very favorite places in the whole world! As a matter of fact Chris and I often talk about retiring to Bayfield, Wisconsin when we are ready to go back to creating rustic pieces as a hobby rather than run the busy shop we now have in order to support our three (now teenage) children.
We started making simple log beds along with case goods to go with our bedroom furniture such as log dressers and from there our collection has grown. We now make bent branch log beds, log slab beds, and a few other variations that are unique and a little fancier. There are also four different styles of log bunk beds that we do. All of these can be seen in our store site and our rustic gallery.
The Waseca location has grown quite a bit, especially in the last two years. We have added a lot of space to our shop, finishing room, lumber and log storage, and shipping area. Waseca is a farming community, and has it's own unique inspiration. A big part of that is the barn wood furniture that we began building about three years ago, and this collection of reclaimed furniture has been the driving force behind our incredible growth. We still get a lot of requests for our log pieces however, and have expanded the collection to include juniper and hickory log furniture as well.
Our northern white cedar log furniture is still one of our most popular lines which includes furniture for every room, along with log mirrors, log lamps, and log staircases. We are very fortunate to have such a fantastic customer base throughout the United States and Canada, and it is very fulfilling to know that others share our love of unique pieces of furniture that are hand made to order.
