The Tiny Shed

I’m Jordan Saia, owner, operator and craftsman at Tiny Shed--a custom furniture shop offering original designs made from 100% sustainable reclaimed wood.

Combining a background in Fine Arts at Pratt Institute with 15 years of experience in carpentry, I create timeless pieces that blend natural beauty with functional design--using high-quality materials sourced right here in the Pacific Northwest.

At Tiny Shed, I’ll work with you to find the perfect solution for your space. Although I work with douglas fir, pine, cedar, black walnut, spalted maple, and variety of other materials, I specialize in unique creations using a dense hardwood referred to as “fishtail oak,” for its almost iridescent qualities. This stunning wood blends shades of chocolate, honey, rose, cinnamon, burgundy, and copper, in a breathtaking pattern not unlike the scales of a fish.

I first stumbled upon it in the industrial section of NW Portland, where grayed and weathered shipping dunnage made of the material sit, waiting to be transformed into your one-of-a-kind piece.

You can order directly online, with free shipping to anywhere in the U.S., or contact me directly to discuss your special project.

Our raw Fishtail oak stock, is kiln dried and stacked in the shop. Every board is milled to order. We go through a very labor intensive process to saw, straighten, plane, and clean up every piece that will eventually be joined for your piece.
