Modern rustic home decor | Handmade in Indiana

Welcome to Kaizen Woodworks. I make a variety of rustic home decor items using both reclaimed wood and new wood. My build and ship time is usually pretty quick, 1-5 days for most items, because Kaizen Woodworks is not a side hustle or a hobby, it is my full time job, my obsession, and my life.

Now for a little back story...
My name is Kyle. I am a husband and a father of two amazing children. I am a full time woodworker and build everything in my garage in Northern Indiana. My shop offerings are a reflection of my artistic style and personality. I am a technology junkie and try to infuse that with my creations whenever possible. The word “Kaizen” is Japanese for “continuous improvement” and is how I try to live my life.

Thanks for looking!

The Idea

I strive to make great quality handmade decor that is both beautiful and functional.

Style & Quality

I only use high quality, sturdy materials. The reclaimed wood has a very distinctive look, it is sourced from friends, neighbors, or local farms in the Northern Indiana / Southern Michigan area. Reclaimed wood may be warped or bowed, it may have irregular grain or knots, and usually has a few cracks, it is sunbleached and sometimes green from moss, these "blemishes" serve to give each piece its character. I make sure that each piece of wood I use will be sturdy and reliable, despite looking beat up, they are built to last. Each necklace stand is unique and the look will vary. Please message me if you have any questions.

100% Handmade

For the most part, I am a one man operation. Occasionally, when large orders come in, or during the busy season, I may get some additional help from friends and neighbors. Each item is handmade with love.
