The Story

Erin True, the owner of Urban Wood Goods, founded the company 9 years ago on a crafters marketplace called Etsy. Erin was a former art teacher in the Detroit area for 8 years before relocating to the Chicago area and falling in love with both the look and idea of Old Growth salvaged wood on an adventure to source the perfect piece of wood for a bench she wished to make for her home. Erin's Etsy shop, resonated with the Etsy community and a growing number of architects and designers for custom furniture made for the home, offices, retail, hotels, restaurants and universities.

Grown & Built here.


Everyday is an adventure. It’s the thrill of the hunt, connecting to the past and breathing new life into something that has served a different purpose over the last 100-200 years. It’s an amazing feeling to see this material as the structure for a building in Chicago, and days later seeing it roll up on a truck to our woodshop, so that we may transform it into furniture.
