We create fully functioning wooden bicycles, some wood selected from local urban forests. Each is individually designed and handmade (not CNC) by Master Wood worker Bill Holloway of Masterworks in San Jose Ca. When possible, wood is selected from the inventory at The Green Sawmill in San Mateo, Ca. where they recover and mill trees from local Bay Area communities. The attention to detail and craftsmanship make each one truly "Art in Motion" as they cruise down city streets turning heads where ever they are. These bikes are truly a sign that craftsmanship is still a live and well in these time of mass produced two wheeled machines.
Own a wood bicycle we have already made or tell us what you have in mind. We will even carve your logo on the frame!
The finish/sealer/stain we recommend is low VOC and friendly to animals, humans and the environment: safe-to-use Penofin® Verde rosewood oil. This finish is easily maintained and leaves the “wood feel” as it protects.

Bill and Mauro also design and create one-of-a-kind masterpieces in wood—interior and exterior projects like custom doors, gates, molding, furniture, cabinets and carved features. A flair for traditional as well as contemporary design gives their work a timeless yet fresh look. Consulting with their clients they choose the style, varieties of wood and custom design features desired.
Environmentally conscious, they use urban wood sources—dismantled homes and buildings, lumber from tree removal etc.—when possible. Uncompromising craftsmanship sets Masterworks Wood and Design apart from companies doing work at the “accepted standard.”
