About us

Based in Carlsbad, California, Salt + Saw specializes in unique custom furniture and handmade goods.  

Lead artist Preston, started his woodworking education from a young age learning tools of the trade working with his grandfathers.  Both were avid craftsmen and woodworkers who believed strongly in functional designs and a careful attention to detail.  Many of the tools in his shop were passed down through two generations and continue to be used today.   

After majoring in Engineering, Preston spent his free time on nights and weekends growing his skillset remodeling homes and building small pieces out of a local garage shop.  His work was “artisanal”, “small-batch”, and “hand-crafted” long before it was considered cool and well before it required suspenders and a mustache.  His creative process is unique in that it leverages a strong engineering discipline and careful planning with an enthusiastic creativity.  Some of his most popular designs are recommissioned by request but his preference is to create new designs; always pushing both his ability and the level of his workmanship.
