We are wood artisans, working to breathe life into custom woodwork furniture for our customers. Every piece is 100% hand made from start to finish. We create unique, custom pieces for each of our clients, involving them each step of the way to ensure their visions become reality. The Wright Edge handles every step of the custom woodworking process from beginning to end, including cutting, drying, sanding, planning, and even custom epoxy and frames. We do our own metal work to ensure each of our live edge tables is honored with the highest quality materials all-around.
Owner and founder of The Wright Edge, Doc Wright was a member of corporate America but wasn’t happy, so he started woodworking in his spare time. Although he has spent most of his life working with his hands, the live edge woodworking discipline was a new one. He discovered an unexpected level of passion and creativity in the craft, and has been dedicated ever since. A proud graduate of Texas Tech University with a degree in Geology and a minor in Chemistry, Doc went to work in the oil industry as a Geologist upon graduating. He traveled across the country for his job, which took him as far as Northern Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and much of the Central U.S. Once Doc discovered his true passion for artisan custom woodworking, he left the oil industry behind to solely focus on this new path in life. Doc lives and breathes for this passion, and his meticulous scientific approach to custom woodworking brings a new level of innovative craftsmanship to each and every Wright Edge piece.
