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!

We always begin with a thorough consultation. You’ll meet with an expert on our design & build team to understand your goals and the vision you’d like to bring to life. We’ll discuss your intended purpose/use for your piece, where it will be used/displayed (location/climate/activity), and the look and feel you’re trying to achieve, among other things such as wood & other materials used, color/stain, finish, hardware, etc.
Once we’ve understood your vision, we’ll produce a mock-up of your piece, so you can see what it will look like and make any adjustments necessary before we begin the actual build.
You’ll have the opportunity to review your piece(s) during the build process & provide your feedback.
Once complete, we’ll schedule a review with you and make any final adjustments necessary.
Your piece will be delivered to your desired location with white-glove service by our seasoned logistics team.
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.
Veneer matching on a clock face door
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.
