Dean Curfman started blacksmithing out of necessity. He built log homes and he needed tools. Thirty years later, he’s created a unique custom business that features hand forging and sourcing of live edge wood slabs. Oak Hill Iron + Wood is in downtown Morganton in a building that formerly housed Art Craft Press, an unemployment commission, and the downtown bomb shelter. With over 30 years of proven experience, Oak hill Iron thoughtfully designs high-end, always hand-forged architectural and artistic ironworks to complement residential and commercial operations. Oak Hill Iron has a team of artistic, professional craftsmen. All bring their unique skills into the mix, enhancing the team’s ability to complete the beautiful hand forged work that comes from this company.
In the showroom, visitors will find hand-forged, one-of-a-kind iron pieces complemented with gorgeous wood slabs and accessories to accent any living space. There’s an entire wall of samples for customers to touch and feel. Oak Hill Iron + Wood offers one-on-one consultations of custom projects. The selection of wood is ever changing and vast. In the back, visitors can find live edge slabs of all species and sizes. A customer can pick the exact piece of wood and the exact legs they want forged for it.
To support its product, Oak Hill Iron + Wood has two sawmills, three kilns, and a workshop.
