About

We’re Rugged Unusual – tough, unique art and furniture designs.

Rugged Unusual is a two-person woodworking collaborative based in East Nashville, TN.

“I always thought my bartending career would end with me in a woodshop. I’d be old and grumpy with a fridge full of beer and I’d take out a lifetime of frustration with old customers by woodworking. Then Covid-19 happened and my passion project got moved up. The pandemic really forced me into pursuing something I love and I could not be happier. I love working with my hands. I love the feeling of finishing a project and being stoked about it.”

-Harley, Co-Founder

“I’ve been a carpenter for 20 years, I’m excited at the prospect of working on the creative side of things. Harley keeps things creative and I keep things logical and well put together. We’re a great team and we’ve made some amazing art and furniture. I’m confident we’ll make even more unique art and furniture as we go. “
