Welcome to
J.A. Woodworking

Jared Patchin started building furniture in 1991 when his father bought Shutter Crafts. A local company that built wood shutters right here in the Treasure Valley.  He would spend time at the shop playing with scraps of wood and a handsaw, building rickety end tables, chairs, desks, and a countless number of swords.

In the ensuing 20 years the tools have changed and so have the building techniques.  During his college years at Boise State University, where he began by studying civil engineering and then changed to production management, he began learning and developing the woodworking techniques necessary to build high-end fine furniture. 

He has now been running J. Alexander for 17 years and still finds joy in making end tables and swords, but they are far from rickety now.
