Theo Padouvas

About Theo’s work: “I specialize in making furniture that will last. Utilizing techniques developed by the Japanese thousands of years ago, I build furniture that is held with an intricate system of wood joinery. This type of joinery is stronger than any joint made with glue or nails and will last many lifetimes.”

Originally from Queens, NY, Theo moved to Oakland in 2010 to join the incredible music scene here. On a whim, he decided to pursue an old childhood dream of being a woodworker and enrolled in some woodworking classes at Laney. Now he’s building custom furniture for people.
