Our River

About Us

We started out making gifts for family and friends and before we knew it, a hobby turned into a profession. Our shop is located in downtown Gleason, along the banks of the renowned Prairie River, one of the Northwoods' most luscious and beautiful streams.

Cedar SignNot only do we craft professional-quality cutting boards and kitchen products, but we also create beautiful custom crafted signs to fit every need- residential, commercial and even municipal.

We have the ability to essentially carve any graphic or any font you desire...  Our signs can be made of any material you prefer, for example: cedar, walnut, cherry, or red birch. 



I love my cutting board! It's big so I can chop all my veggies at one time, wide enough to stand on end when not in use, and it looks great. Stays on my counter, whereas my old ones were kept in the pantry. - Marge, Oklahoma City, OK

The large wood cutting board is just the right size whether chopping veggies for salads or cutting meat for dinner.   I use the board several times a day.  It is easy to clean with soap and water and once a month I rub it with mineral oil and it looks like new again.   I recently received a second board from Riverwood Originals and love that one too. - Kris, Portage, WI
