In 1945, George Nakashima opened his woodworking business simply to earn a living using the skills he had learned as an Eagle Scout in the Pacific Northwest, as an architect in the Far East, and as a woodworker in the Idaho desert.
We continue to custom-mill sustainably harvested hardwoods—maximizing both yield and their innate beauty—and to select the resulting planks individually for each project. We strive to create the “antiques of the future” as a collaborative, integrated process throughout which designer and maker work hand-in-hand, now guided by Mira Nakashima’s keen sensibility.

Nakashima Foundation for Peace
It was George Nakashima’s dream to provide Altars of Peace for each of the seven continents on the planet, seven “small points of light encircling the globe.” The Nakashima Foundation for Peace is dedicated to seeing George’s dream realized.
