Eventide Custom Wood & Metal

Eventide Custom, a full service custom wood and metal shop, is located on the bend of the majestic Mississippi River where explorers, Native Americans and pioneers made their mark in history. We are just across from Nauvoo, Illinois, a city steeped in rich history and one of the launch pads of the American frontier and wild west.

Specializing in products manufactured from reclaimed wood, Eventide Custom gives new life to lumber harvested from local hardwoods in the mid-1800s up through early 1900s..

Reclaimed Wood

Most of the hardwood we use was harvested locally and dates back to the hand-hewn times of the 1800s. Wood that might be discarded or destroyed is reworked and upcycled into flooring, furniture, cabinets and signs.


Eventide Custom offers a wide variety of solid hardwood flooring including oak, walnut, heart pine, hickory plus many other native species. Our tongue and groove flooring is made to order in the customer's choice of 2-inch to 8-inch widths with 4, 5, and 6-inch widths being most popular. Orders are flat planed or skip planed according to the customer's preference. Pricing varies by product availability, ranging between $4.50 and $7 a square foot. Eventide Custom pricing is substantially lower than flooring purchased at large retailers. And our quality is best. We use only hand selected solid hardwoods and each piece is inspected with care. Our reclaimed flooring is beautiful and provides a smooth and rustic accent to your home or business.


We build custom cabinets with real wood using 5/8-inch or 3/4-inch oak plywood for base construction and solid wood doors and facings. We can also build new cabinet faces and doors to revitalize current cabinets. Soft close hardware is used for quiet close drawers. We specialize in cabinet faces and doors made from reclaimed hardwood that is skip planed for a stunningly beautiful rustic appearance.


Eventide Custom manufactures harvest tables, benches and shelves from your choice of wood. Table tops can be personalized with your family name, initial or a favorite saying. Using our CNC router we create a custom insert with your name, initial or saying and set it into the table top to create a one-of-a-kind heirloom.

CNC routered signs

We can design and carve any sign to suit your needs. Using a Fireball Meteor CNC router, we can create signs up to 8 feet long. Signs are cut into hardwoods, barn siding and live-edge slabs. With this machine we can also machine custom wood, aluminum and brass parts. We will add etching and carving granite slabs in the near future.

Live-edge slabs

We stock oak, walnut, hard maple and red (aromatic) cedar on site

for custom furniture, sign orders and individual sale. 

Metal-work and Blacksmithing

Eventide Custom manufactures wrought iron work including gates, newel posts, railings and ornamental iron works. We have two coal fired forges and we beat our iron the old school way. With a history of 5 generations of blacksmiths, we have the experience to repair old items such as plow shares and to recreate old iron devices for restoration projects. We also offer metal fabrication and welding services.
