I'm Michael Ortolano, founder of PDX Woodworks.
With over 16 years of experience handcrafting wood furniture in the Pacific Northwest, I bring care, attention and quality to each piece I create. Over the years, I've mastered techniques and skills that allow me to create furniture that elevates both residential and commercial spaces. Drawing from extensive knowledge of material, design and functionality, I'll help you take your piece from ideation through execution.
Woodwork for me is not just a business, it's a passion. It's foundationally important to me that my clients get more than just a great piece of furniture, but they get an experience that personally considers them at each step of the design process.
I care deeply about your experience from start to finish, taking personal care to ensure each piece of furniture is designed and built with your lifestyle in mind. This allows you to have a personal connection with your final product, which is what makes this job so rewarding for me.
When I'm not designing and building furniture at the shop, you can find me enjoying life with my family, our chickens, dog, birds and cats.
Thanks for visiting our site and we look forward to working with you.
