Why Mike

About/Bio

Realizing my passion for art and craft, I founded the business in 2006.  I switched from a full-time career in Information Technology to full-time woodworking. My woodworking began nearly 25 years ago as a boy helping my parents remodel an old colonial home. Over the past 20 years, I've built countless projects, refining my design and craftsmanship skills every step of the way.

Craftsmanship

With custom built furniture, the quality and craftsmanship are second to none. While you may find staples, hot-melt glue, particle board, and other engineered materials in furniture from even the best quality furniture stores, you will not find them in any heirloom quality piece that I make. I use only the best quality materials and centuries-proven joinery techniques to make sure that the furniture produced stands up to a lifetime of use.

The Shop

Fine woodworking requires a mixture of power and hand tools.  My shop, small by some standards at 500 square feet, has the best of each.  Large European woodworking machines help me make quick work of turning rough lumber into furniture components.  My hand tools pick up where the power tools leave off, removing milling marks and cutting joinery.  Working with well-tuned tools allows me to work to a high degree of precision.

The Shop

A place for everything, everything in its place. -Benjamin Franklin

My Mission

My mission is to craft furniture that makes use of the natural beauty of wood and create pieces where form follows function, where simplicity is grace, using time-honored woodworking techniques to ensure that the furniture is made to last.

Specialty

My specialty is creating heirloom-quality furniture and quality cabinetry that creates the same sense of pride for the owner as I take in making it. The pride and satisfaction comes from the attention to every detail in my workmanship and the human connection between me (designer and builder) and you the customer. Every piece I build is custom designed to meet your requirements and exceed your expectations. Each piece is hand signed and guaranteed. 

Satisfaction

The personal satisfaction you get from owning a piece of custom built furniture is difficult to describe. Pieces that we have delivered to customers have given them great pride and excitement.
