Welcome to Urban Whittler. Handcrafted custom furniture and home décor!

About Us


Believe it or not a door had sentimental value!

We were giving my childhood home a much needed renovation and one of the items that desperately screamed out for updating was the front door.  It seemed a shame to throw it out. Not only was it hand made by my father but, it was uniquely large and solid wood.  I wanted my father to somehow have a contribution in my new home, as he had passed away, so I turned the door into our dining room table.    From this, a passion was born.  Soon noticed by my wife who frequents Pinterest.  Everyday we looked at new innovations people had and she asked can I do that?  Of course, I said yes.    The Urban Whittler was born!
