About Peg Woodworking
Peg Woodworking is a Brooklyn based company created in 2014 by designer and woodworker Kate Casey. With an intense material curiosity born out of several years as a sculptor and fabricator each design is approached with the utmost attention to form and function.
Paying tribute to the clean lines and intricate weaving found in Shaker and Scandinavian design Peg Woodworking provides a contemporary take on traditional design. While gathering pattern inspiration from Nordic, Peruvian, and American Indian weaving, each piece is hand woven in-house with a unique array of patterns and colors. Through combining the intricate aesthetics of the hand weaving with the angular geometry and clean lines of the woodworking each piece finds a harmonious balance of bold and delicate details.
Since starting Peg Woodworking in 2014 it has remained an all female run operation, we are proud to participate in community outreach programs which expose young women and under resourced communities to woodworking and design.
