It’s structure exuding firmness, history, and broad shoulders. Like a foundry for the purpose of putting out railroad spike after railroad spike, the workshop at Aaron Carlson is truly a sight to behold. But with all that strength on the outside there is a delicateness taking place within that is divergent and warm.
Handcrafted wood pieces do that to us. Creating comfort in a room, adding warmth and inspiring gatherings. Aaron Carlson has been bringing those feelings to homes and businesses since 1891. At the shop they stress the importance of that history. Amongst those in the woodworking business, Aaron Carlson has made their name for never turning down a project, so that table you need to fit perfectly under your chandelier while also not blocking the sliding door to the backyard is just as exhilarating to them as it is to create a stage for performing artists.
Then there is the scale of their work. Although located in Northeast Minneapolis, you can find their mark in prominent places all across the cities. From the wood covering the scoreboard in the Xcel Center to the hostess stand at the ever popular Spoon and Stable to the gorgeous ceiling at the Ordway Center for Performing Arts, Aaron Carlson has created delicate pieces, leaving its impression on Minneapolis and St. Paul with attention to detail that is as fine as the wood grain they are working with.
