Attention to detailEach piece of hardwood used is of the best quality and is hand selected for quality and grain character. The wood is purchased in the “rough” and milled to the proper thickness in our studio. This often allows us to make the entire piece from the same board, ensuring consistency in wood color and grain character. Every piece is made from solid lumber. We're proud to say you won't find any particle board in our work.

 

Time tested joineryWe use the same time tested joinery methods traditional to the Arts & Crafts Movement including mortise & tenon (“through” mortise, “blind” mortise, “pegged” tenons), tongue & groove and ship lap. No nails or staples are ever used; Screws are rare, and concealed if possible. This type of joinery and attention to detail results in pieces which are true to spirit of the Arts & Crafts style.

 

Quality materialsDue to the wide selection of products we craft, a variety of finishing processes are employed. We prefer a five step, hand rubbed, wax finish which produces a rich, low luster finish that looks natural and emphasizes the grain in the wood. On pieces requiring a more durable finish, we utilize modern polyurethanes to offer more protection.

 

 

functional artworkOur intent is to provide “Heirloom” quality functional art and accessories in the tradition of the Arts & Crafts Movement for your home or office which are not available elsewhere.  We are always looking for new products to develop. We welcome and appreciate any ideas or special requests that you may have and offer gift certificates if one of your ideas is added to our standard product line.

 


About Me
experienced artist
After owning and operating a commercial cabinet business in Arizona for 15 years, I moved to Michigan and for another 15 years worked as Design Engineer / Project Manager for a premium quality woodworking company which catered to high profile clients. During my time with this company, my passion for woodworking was rekindled and I began making small, detailed pieces in the Arts & Crafts style for my own home. In early 2009, I decided to listen to the urgings of friends and family and work full-time  on projects for other individuals who appreciate the beauty of timeless wood pieces.

blessed to serve

"Jesus has blessed me more than I deserve, and the success of my business is not in my hands, but in His. My part is to always be fair and honest, to do the best work I can, and to treat my customers well (Col 3:23). The care that I put into each piece is a small way of honoring Him and of showing my gratitude for the gifts He has given me. These pieces are not “widgets” to me, they are my legacy and I “know” each one intimately. I will never sell anything that I am not proud of." - John Shea
