We bring to our endeavors in furniture making a commitment to the principles,
ideals and craftsmanship established in the formative period of the Arts & Crafts movement
that is rarely found in any other furniture maker, large or small.
We rely on tasteful design and uncompromising craftsmanship to define our view of the past and the future of the Arts & Crafts Movement. Our furniture will continue to enhance lives long after we are dust. We regard the privilege of affecting your life by our work with the utmost seriousness.
We will honestly detail the positive aspects, and the shortcomings of each piece that we build.
If available, we will tell you where to get a similar item of equal quality,
or where to get equal work done cheaper. We are our own harshest critics.
However, it is with 25 years experience that I can say, "There are very, very few options".
The once incomparable, American furniture industry is practically nonexistent now.
Even the finest names in furniture making are conducting their manufacturing overseas.
I have to put on the mental brakes here, or I will devolve into an extended rant.
The industry destroyed itself from within, then moved the monstrosity offshore.
The Arts & Crafts Movement, at the start of the 20th century,
was a repudiation of the initial
elements of this decline in craftsmanship, throughout the furniture industry. Today, we stand firm
in our commitment to honor the treasure that is our forests by producing a high quality product
that is desirable and durable, through a process that is sustainable and ecologically sound.
Take the time to visit with History and Philosophy pages to find out more about us and what
we are working towards. In the Shop Tour section we will detail many of the methods, materials,
and techniques that we use to construct furniture. Also, we will show you around the woods
where we cut our logs, the mill where we saw our lumber, and the kiln where it is dried.
We invite you to respond with questions or comments in the Contact Us section.
