Our Products

Our philosophy is to create beautiful and functional heirloom pieces for our clients. We use traditional joinery techniques.

Our workshop policy is to make certain that we use eco-friendly materials for each of our projects. We use wood products that are domestically sourced and that comply with the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). An FSC-certified product has been harvested and produced with an ecologically sensitive manner. Our finishes are non-toxic to the health of our clients and the environment. We use only all natural oils, waxes or shellac on our pieces - we do not use chemicals.
