is from generations of experience. I have learned from my father (and Grandfathers)
how to create quality furniture that will last.
We at Our Woodshop are proud of what we make and the way we make
things. We never use the so called "engineered lumber" or what I consider
glorified cardboard like you find in so many kinds of furniture now
Most of the
things we make are made of nothing but real honest to goodness natural
wood boards. We use mostly pine, poplar, oak, hickory and old barn siding, but if you want
something else, we can do that too. We hand select the lumber to get
the best stock available. I
buy hard woods directly from the man that
cut down the trees.
use a Kreg Jig to make pocket holes and screw things together so that
things will be good and tight for generations. I made one cabinet and when I had the shell done, just
for kicks I counted the screws, there were 95!
have an assembly line, employees or a factory, everything is made by one of us from beginning
to end. Cathy and I (Thomas) are proud of the things we make and love the thought that
what we make will be passed down from generation to generation.
has to be an EXACT size, let us know, we'll make it that way.
We use Minwax stains, if you want something stained , check out their website and let us know what color you want.
We use PolyWhey by Vermont Natural Coatings to finish our hardwoods. It has a hard finish, is easy to work with, it won't hurt the environmnet and actually smells good. Check out their website at http://www.vermontnaturalcoatings.com.
things White, Barn Red, Hunter Green, Midnight Blue and Black. Or, we
will paint it any other color you want if you supply the paint.
use wooden knobs and antique brass self closing hinges or hand made hinges. If you want
something special, tell us. if you want something.... different, we would rather
you supply it so there is no confusion.... We will help you out.
Our goal is to make exactly what you want and make sure that you are
a happy customer so that you will come back and you will tell your friends
about us. It's just that simple.
PS, People keep asking if we fix furniture or refinish furniture. We don't but we would be glad to make something for you.
