About Zen Simple

zen simple

Here in Camas, Washington (just outside of Portland, Oregon), working with wood is my passion.  I create each item by hand and I'm always on the hunt for new and interesting raw materials which means that each new piece may have a different texture or finish.  It's part of the journey.

I like to make batches of the same (or similar) products at the same time.  What this means is that sometimes we're able to ship your order immediately - if it's on the shelf - in other cases it means that we'll get to it in the next batch.

The environment also matters to me so I use salvaged or reclaimed wood where I can and "borrow" slabs from my Dad's barn when he's not looking. I also like natural finishes where it makes sense to use them.

Please stay in touch and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks for visiting Zen Simple!
