          Custom Dining Chair

          Our client was in need of a new dining chair to complete a set she already had. The set had been in her family for generations, but along the way the larger 'granddaddy' chair went missing. After ages of not having a complete set, she now has that missing chair!

          Our skilled artisans used one of her dining chairs as a guide for the carvings and basic design, but the new chair needed to be wider and have arms. It all started with a sketch and after some time, hard work, and many conversations later, the 'granddaddy' chair is now complete!

          Curly Maple Beds

          We worked with our client to create two curly maple beds that would match some pieces a family member made for him previously.  The pieces were made using curly maple directly from Pennsylvania, in an early American style.  We added an ogee edge to the headboard and used hidden cam locks to join the rails to the headboard and footboard so they could taken apart easily later on.

          Both the king and queen size bed have interchangeable parts and we even created a custom made 12 inch rail that can be used when the bed needs to be stored.  This will allow them to be stored upright.

          Custom dining chair built to match a set already owned
          Our client had a set of carved dining chairs that had been in her family for generations.  But they were missing the "captain's" or "granddaddy" chair.  This chair needed to be wider and have arms, something that none of the current chairs had.  Our artisan started by studying a chair in her set and built the new chair to match.  Now her set is complete and she couldn't be happier!

          Custom chairs built from original art deco side panels
          When we started, we only had the side panels of these chairs.  Our amazing artisan was able to create a brand new middle framework and build out the skeleton of the new chair. Afterwards our master upholsterer finished the seat and back with new foam, decking and webbing, and new fabric!

          Recreated lion's feet for a buffet
          The original piece was damaged in a fire and the feet were badly damaged.  Our master woodworker was able to rebuild the marred pieces and hand carve them to match the original shape.

          The door to the clock face on an antique English tall clock had some badly damaged areas the the veneer needed to be replaced.  Our woodworker took great care to match the grain and pattern as best as possible so the final piece would look as if no work had been done at all.
