    About Andrew Traub

    Thank you for visiting Andrew Traub Studio. This website showcases some of my current as well as past projects and has a link to my etsy store where you find more photos and work for sale.

    Originally from southern California I have been living in Boise, Idaho for over two decades. I have a small workshop where I make a variety of artisan projects, take on local commissions and often help artist friends by providing frames and structure for various installations and works in their studios.

    My designs and woodworking are unique in that they’re often modern yet rustic and refined yet industrial. The wood materials I use include salvaged lumber, juniper, beetle kill pine (often called blue pine), OSB, and some engineered beams like LVL or Timberstrand. I also like to char wood with a torch, a Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban.

    Please use the “Store” link to browse what I currently have for sale on etsy. Once there you can see reviews from customers and view some of my sold items in case you’d like me to resurrect something. Even though etsy charges fees, they are low enough that customers are able to order and purchase some of my unique handmade work without the added expense of buying through a retail store or gallery. You're dealing with me directly using the secure format etsy has created. I also offer some direct sales on this website for a few items that are ready to ship.
