About

Love of the trade, love of the people

The Beginning

Founded in 2000, Joel Bare Woodworking is located in the heart of Lancaster County on a quaint family farm. We have been creatively designing and building custom wooden countertops and furniture for almost 16 years. We put our heart and soul into every custom wooden piece.

Quality Craftsmanship

We are proud to say that we are not a production shop and our pieces are not mass-produced. We work one-on-one with residential and commercial companies including high-end kitchen business', designers and contractors to build a unique custom wood butcher block countertop, island, bar top, or piece of furniture. Our exclusive pieces are built with the finest materials and individually hand crafted. We work with different grain patterns, colors and tones, and quality craftsmanship that you will truly admire. Since our pieces are custom, we build them according to your specifications which include the detail, size, color, shape, and finish. We deliver to anywhere on the East Coast from Virginia to Maine.

What's Important

One of our greatest loves is being in our woodworking shop and growing personal relationships with our clients. We take pride and value getting to know whom our clients are and what their needs and wants are. We will work directly with you, not through a second party. What makes us stand out from the rest is that we build relationships with our clients that turn into friendships.


Our desire for the future of our business is to create beautiful pieces, appreciate the true artistry in woodworking and value traditional, time-tested methods. When we build a piece of furniture, we aim to uphold the integrity of the piece while tailoring it to compliment our clients originality. We only use the finest quality materials that will withstand the test of time.


"I really love what I do and relationships with my clients are just an added bonus." - Joel Bare
