My name is Garth Franklin and I’m the owner of the one-man operation Franklin Woodworking. I pride myself in working one on one with my clients to construct heirloom pieces that we can both take great pride in.
I first started woodworking at Colby College when I took an immersive month long furniture building course my sophomore year. I immediately became obsessed with the craft and spent the majority of my free time out at the wood shop between biochemistry labs and lacrosse practice. Upon moving to Utah, I met the talented Chad Parkinson of The Furniture Joint and spent two years under his watchful eye learning the ins and outs of commercial custom furniture building. I started my own business in 2015 and since then have been enjoying the ride of creating custom pieces.
