Custom Live Edge Furniture | 100% Unique | Women Owned Business | AgainstTheGrain Woodworking | Noblesville, IN


Gathering inspiration from the unique character of hardwood, AgainstTheGrain Woodworking embraces the boldness that is Live Edge wood and creates one of a kind furniture and home décor to accent any home, office, or co-working space.


We promise that each hand-crafted piece showcases the natural characteristics of the Live Edge slabs used to truly unlock the beauty within which presents itself once placed in your desired space.

The perfect combination of rustic and modern


We have high standards

In our efforts, we not only use high quality Live Edge slabs, we focus on the life span of the wood starting with where it is sourced.

These aspects provide the landscape for each design and invoke the inspiration to take something from its raw form and turn it into a piece of furniture just as unique as you.

Locally Sourced

Unless specifically requested, we build our products from wood locally sourced from Indiana, with an emphasis on wood that ended its lifespan in a natural way.

Dried Fully

Once milled, the wood is stacked to air dry for a period of time, followed by being kiln-dried. It is only then that the wood is ready to be used for your custom creation.


Hand Selected

When you place your order, we hand-select a group of slabs based on grain patterns, curves, and imperfections - natures perfect balance. You get to choose which to move forward with.


Our most popular projects

Each handcrafted piece is tailored to your style, budget and space. In fact, you can confidently tell your friends your order is one-of-a-kind.

"Everything about our experience was fantastic. Stephanie was helpful throughout the design process and we were involved in making key choices (it was fun!) We received updates, including photos, throughout the build. When it came time for the “big reveal” we opted for delivery (definitely worth it)! The movers she arranged were pros), and she came in person to make sure everything was perfect. We LOVE our new table. If you want a true artist, AgainstTheGrain is an amazing choice!" - Dean

We get it. You see other local wood artists and think to yourself, why should I go with AgainstTheGrain? While we invite you to shop around to see what works best for you, we can say with pride what we bring to the table (no punt intended):

  • Specialists: We are not general carpenters. Our specialty is working with live edge slabs to produce unique products.

  • Premium Materials: Along with premium slabs, we finish our products with top of the line products that enhance the natural look of the wood and accent with modern, customized steel bases. 

  • The Experience: From the time you inquire about an order to when the product is completed, you are involved the entire way. We will review your design together to ensure you get what you want, you get to choose your slab(s) if desired, and you get regular updates once your order is in production. The result? No surprises and an awesome journey for you as you watch your slab go from a raw piece of wood to a one-of-a-kind art piece.
