About

Founded by Barbara Goldberg in 2014, Wood Designs by Barbara is located in St Augustine, Fl. 

How We Got Started – Woodworking has been an interest of Barbara’s since she was a young child. Her uncle, who was an electrician, would bring scrap wood from his jobs to Barbara when he’d come for a visit. He taught her how to use hand tools to create little projects. Her woodworking interest continued into Junior High and High School where she had the opportunity to hone her woodworking skills while taking several shop classes. She rekindled her interest in woodworking after visiting a N.E. Florida cypress lumber yard in March of 2014. She purchased some wood to see what she could do with it. Her friends showed interest and asked her to create gifts that they could give to their friends and family. From those requests Wood Designs by Barbara was born.
