About

Board & Bevel

I make artistic homewares that are durable and functional. I was sick of hating my furniture so I decided to make my own. I know you too have experienced the frustration of a table leg that wiggles, and I encourage you to do something about it as well. Not everyone can make their own, but allow me to make you something that you can hold onto for years to come. Contact me for custom items, or to purchase pieces I have listed.

 

Me

My name is Matt Hert and I have always made things. When I was a child, my dad would take me to the local orange ‘big box’ store to do their weekend crafting projects. Later, I begged my dad to teach me how to carve (which he didn’t know how to do), but he bought me a block of balsa wood and a carving knife. I spent hours in the garage carving that block into a simple wooden ship. As I grew older I made things like skate ramps, ski rails, or camera equipment. A few years ago I started building things for my home. When others think, “I bet it’s cheaper to buy,” I think, “I bet its more fun to build.”

I want to personally make things for you. I will make you whatever you want. I have a catalog of work for sale, but will custom make and design things specifically for you.
