Spectra Wood is a family-owned and operated solid wood furniture maker based in Pennsylvania's "Happy Valley". The company began when Larry Roeshot and his son, Doug took up a hobby of crafting cutting boards and turning candlesticks from Pennsylvania's finest hard woods. Their hand-made wares sold out and their basement workshop quickly evolved into a nationally respected furniture manufacturer. Spectra wood has now been proudly crafting American-made furnishings for almost 45 years. Today, Larry's son-in-law, Andy Friberg, runs the company, which employs over 100 dedicated craftsmen in Sate College, Pennsylvania.
Spectra Wood has always been committed to sustainable and local Pennsylvania forestry, sourcing their beautiful black walnut and american black cherry woods from less than an hour away. Depending on the occasion Spectra will also make use of other local Pennsylvania woods including ash, birch, poplar, bird's eye maple, and tiger maple. Spectra Wood's furniture makers combine the best traditional techniques such as mortise-and-tenon and dovetail joinery alongside modern CNC equipment that provides unparalleled precision. Spectra craftsmen are trained in old values that respect quality and durability, and take pride in building truly heirloom quality Mission & Shaker style furniture.
