J&M started over 40 years ago by Maria Carwithen, Joseph Matkowski and Michael Matkowski siblings who started their business as a plant stand selling greenhouse and nursery products from Florida. About 35 years ago they purchased property in Madison, NJ and have continued to build J&M into the family-owned enterprise it is today.

Wooden Pieces

Wooden creations

Exclusively available at J&M Home and Garden a New Jersey based company, Wooden Creations.   Hand crafted by a local artisan from recycled found wood from the tri-state area. Making each bracelet a one of a kind customizable piece of art.  Available wood types currently include Apple, Maple, Walnut, Holly, Cherry, Sycamore, Blackwood and Canary.  If you have any questions please feel free to call and speak directly to the master woodworker himself Mike Matkowski (973) 377- 4740.  Please allow two week turn around time on all custom orders.



Our process starts with the wood.  Our master woodworker has dedicated over 40 years to learning about the textures and growing patterns of different trees and utilizes this knowledge to choose the best raw materials to create his designs.  Most of the raw wood comes from local fallen or dying trees that J&M Landscaping has brought back to our shop, our artisan then takes what is considered to be "broken" and creates beautiful pieces that connect us to the landscape around us.
