Our Origin Story

Our founder, Jason C. Braatz, sought to make a bigger difference in the world. He tested the viability of a computer made from sustainable materials by making the first Wood™ computer prototype from a broken pallet that he found in a dumpster behind the local supermarket. He painted the case around the keyboard with eco-friendly paints and made sure that nothing he could do with it would set it on fire…besides taking a lighter to it. So Jason set out to launch a company to mass produce this solution and offer it on a larger scale, and thus Wood™ was born.
