Production Tips for Beginners

Last week, the Maker’s Row team traveled upstate New York to visit one of our top performing furniture and wood factories, Clean Air Woodworks. This small design-build-manufacturing firm focuses on modern designs, zero-VOC finishes, reclaimed and sustainable wood, and wooden creations of all types.

We sat down with founder, Matt Rogers who has worked with a variety of clients, including beginning product designers. “We can work with wood, metal, fabric, leather, fiberglass, stone, and plastic.” Outside of furniture, Clean Air recently helped one entrepreneur create her wooden handbag line.

In addition to talking about price points, Matt gave us some insight on working with beginners and how he tries to help make the production process as smooth and easy as possible.
