Hi there! My Name is Megan Shannon, and I’m the owner and operator of this one-woman woodworking operation. I've been creating furniture and art with wood for over 10 years. I started Tiny Bit of Wood in 2012 to create beautiful wooden pieces that are sustainable and affordable.
It is my dream to one day own a farm where children can learn, grow and have the opportunity to care for other living things. A place where I can have a community workshop and hold classes for people to learn this trade that I love so dearly. One of these visions has taken shape with the opening of Tiny Bit of School: inclusive classes for first generation woodworkers that normally wouldn’t have access to this art.

Both the process and inspiration for all my work stem from my respect for nature. I wanted to create art and furniture without harming the environment. I use locally sourced wood from tree trimming companies and mill it at my workshop. I try to use natural products instead of harsh chemicals to treat and stain my pieces. To me, it doesn’t make sense to destroy a forest so we can harvest its wood just for it to sit in our homes. Using local and natural materials and sustainable methods was never really a question, it was something I knew I was going to do since day one. In order to have wood to work with, you have to have trees--so I’m doing everything I can to preserve and protect them.
