The Elmwood Story
Like many small businesses, Elmwood Custom Goods was born out of necessity. One day Chris realized that he needed a desk for school work. After looking at prices he decided he could probably build one himself for less than buying one at a store. That first piece certainly wasn’t much to look at but it did way more than provide a flat work surface; it created a growing passion in Chris for making things with his hands. He was soon making things for family and friends and loving it. Fast forward a few years and Chris met Nick. Nick shared similar passions but had a keen eye for what running a business looked like. After a few hangouts in the shop Elmwood Custom Goods was born. The name came from a few things; Elms was Chris’ grandfather’s last name who was also a woodworker. The “wood” part should be pretty obvious…

Who we are
Chris Salih – President

After spending time in his shop, it didn’t take long for word to get out. Focusing on high quality woodworking, Chris was able to produce high end pieces for reasonable prices, a practice that still is utilized by Elmwood Custom Goods LLC.

Woodworking was more than a hobby for Nick. Coming from a background in construction Nick was able to work with his hands on many different projects.
