about us

Who are we? Good ol' fashioned woodworking is who we are. A father-&-sons woodshop, R. Olson Design was founded by Ron and his son, Rick, in 2006. Since then, they managed to coax the third "R" in the trifecta, Ryan, into joining the crew. Combining Ron's forty-years of experience in the trade with Rick's fresh approach to design & fabrication and Ryan's steadfast craftsmanship, the shop has built a solid foundation for a vast spectrum of woodworking projects.

Undeterred by an accident involving a soldering iron and resulting in a third-degree burn in his fathers shop at a young age, Rick has long been captivated by tools and what they can accomplish. Rick never strays to far from his favorite medium, trading the walls of the woodshop for the towering stands of woods around Oregon.



Just like a level, Ryan's even-keeled and keeps projects on track so he can return home at a reasonable hour to his new son, Ben. When he's not solving wood-related riddles in the shop, Ryan trades his nail belt for a poker face.
