Meet the Craftsman: Doc Wright
Owner and founder of The Wright Edge, Doc Wright, was a member of corporate America but wasn’t happy, so he started woodworking in his spare time. Although he has spent most of his life working with his hands, this discipline was a new one. He discovered an unexpected level of passion and creativity in the craft.
A proud graduate of Texas Tech University with a degree in Geology and a minor in Chemistry, Doc went to work in the oil industry as a Geologist upon graduating. He traveled across the country for his job, which took him as far as Northern Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and much of the Central U.S. Once Doc discovered his true passion for artisan woodworking, he left the oil industry behind to solely focus on this new path in life.
Doc lives and breathes for this passion, and his meticulous scientific approach brings a new level of innovative craftsmanship to each and every Wright Edge piece.
Responsibly Sourced Materials
Why kill something when we can bring life to that which is dead?
We’ll never cut down a live tree to make a table. We use what others might consider ‘waste’ as the raw materials for our furniture, turning dead, fallen, and disaster trees into beautiful works of art.
Much of our wood is sourced locally, using regional wood native to the state of Texas. We also have a partnerships with an organization in California that supplies us with some gorgeous exotic woods.
We waste nothing. Our partners and purveyors are hard-working, roll-up-the-sleeves folks just like us and we give back to local business by sticking with their crafts and services.
“Texas isn’t a logging state, so you don’t see this type of work here. This is very unique for Texas. We do need a special setup to do this. Our shop is in Oak Cliff, entire setup is in Red Oak on 8 acres. 36” band saw that can cut up to 20 feet. We have a state of the art kiln system including a solar kiln for drying wood.”
