Craftsman + Artist = Artisan
Enger Grove is an artisan wood shop located in the pine forests of Bemidji, Minnesota.
Craftsman John Enger applies his aesthetic eye and old world techniques to everything from timber frame cabins to custom furniture and kitchen gear such as rolling pins and cutting boards.
Enger Grove is committed to longevity. A well-built timber frame will stand for lifetimes — the same is true of a kitchen table or butcher block. We apply the same ethic to sourcing materials. Much of our lumber is sustainably harvested by John in accordance with a long-term forestry plan to keep our grove healthy. It’s milled on our Amish-built sawmill and the scrap heats our shop.
Why Custom Furniture?
Be Truly Original
When you buy custom furniture, you’re entering into a process of creation — imagining something totally new, and watching it become real. John crafts each piece to match the client’s vision and his own. The resulting objects are purely yours — brought to life in solid wood and beautiful, functional joinery.
John makes tables, headboards, baby cribs, rocking chairs, stools & more. Have an idea? John will make it a reality.
So much of humanity’s woodworking knowledge has been lost. John is passionate about carrying on what remains.
