About Us

We are Kevin and Esther Kruse and we are the owners of Northwest Woodlabs and are located in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. We have three boys, Grayson, Easton, and Lincoln. 

We started this business because we wanted beautiful, functional, educational, practical, heirloom quality toys for our own children and soon realized how so many of you wanted the same for your own family. 

Everything that we make is made right in home. The design work happens in our dining room. The cutting, sanding, and finishing happen in our garage. Work meetings happen after the kids go to bed or while we're making dinner. We take all our pictures wherever the light is best in our house. Everything is packaged and labeled on our kitchen counters or on the floor of our bedroom. It is truly a family owned business. 

We care about making products that are intentional, safe, beautiful, and heirloom quality. I mean, why would we make you something that we wouldn't give to our own children? Thank you for being here and supporting our little business and family.
