About Us

Gibson Boards is a small operation in New Orleans, Louisiana. We pride ourselves on providing locally sourced and sustainably made goods.

All of our wooden goods are handmade here in New Orleans. We carefully design and curate every piece so that each is as beautiful as it is useful. We strive to maintain simplicity while emphasizing quality. We never use stains or dyes so all colors and patterns are indicative of the natural grain of the wood. Every item is handcrafted from the highest quality sustainable hardwoods that we source from local New Orleans lumber yards.

We also source products from other local artists and makers in our community. We value craftsmanship and authenticity above all else and love supporting creatives that share our passion. If you have any questions about any of our items or those of the artists we support please send us an email at shop@gibsonboards.com.

Sustainable Practices

Our devotion to sustainable practices spans from the lumber yard to the shipping tape. 

We do not use wood species that are classified as endangered or threatened on either the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species or the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species Appendices.

And every piece of our shipping and packing material is 100% biodegradable:  

  • Biodegradable packing tape

  • Recyclable & biodegradable shipping boxes

  • Compostable packing paper

So we ask that you please compost or recycle all of your packaging upon receiving your item(s).
