About YB Normal Custom Woodworking

YB Normal Custom Woodworking works closely with interior designers, architects, and individuals to create “Functional Art.” When a client says, “I want something that no one else has,” we deliver.

We create innovative, yet practical and durable reception desks, boardroom tables, executive offices, home offices, bars, and much more. Materials such as hardwoods, veneers, laminates, metals, glass, 3form, granite, and Italian-conversion polyurethane and polyester finishes often envelope our furniture making funky, abstract design and practical durability a standard in all of our designs.

YB Normal comprises a 6,000-square-foot studio and employs a diverse collection of artisans—all with the fierce driving passion to be different, artistic, and excellent in every aspect of their craft. From unique furniture design and construction, to applying top quality materials and cutting edge finishes, YB Normal artisans are creative thinkers pushing the envelope in design, physics, and functionality with every piece of furniture. As the name implies, this is not traditional woodworking.

Ted Geers Biography

Ted Geers, President of YB Normal Custom Woodworking, transformed his insatiable curiosity and driving passion for custom woodworking, furniture design, and functional art into a full-time business in May of 2000.

YB Normal originated from Ted’s frustration with the woodworking industry’s lack of originality, creativity, and artistic application. YB Normal designs and builds furniture that is unique, functional, and some times, shocking—never replicating furniture that has been “done to death.”

Ted and his crew routinely do the “impossible” because they know there is always a way to make something work. They welcome challenging ideas and designs and relish the opportunity to build furniture that will inspire others to try something different, to not accept the “norm,” and to express a client’s personality through his or her furniture.

Ted and his wife Jodi have been married for 22 years and have 4 children: Marcus, Eric, Rogan, and Katie.
