Ironwood Designs Is No Longer Taking Orders


Matt Shuster, the founder and sole proprietor of Ironwood Designs, suffered a cardiac arrest and passed away on June 11. Our objective is make sure every pre-paid order either gets fulfilled or gets refunded. Matt was a great person, and he supremely valued the relationships he created with his community of customers. It is devastating to have to bring you this news and, again, we appeal for some patience as we try to move forward.

Matt leaves behind his wife and young daughter. We have established a GoFundMe to help his family. Contributions are welcome

If you have questions, please email

If you have an open order, please forward your details to We are trying to understand what pieces are available. We will complete your order or give you a refund - please be patient.

To the Ironwood community: we are looking for the right person to carry on Matt's legacy in high-quality woodworking. If that might be you, please email
