"When trees mature, it is fair and moral that they are cut for man's use, as they would soon decay and return to the earth. Trees have a yearning to live again, perhaps to provide the beauty, strength and utility to serve man, even to become an object of great artistic worth."
- George Nakashima
Oak, Maple, Walnut, or something completely different?
We have a large selection of solid hardwood to see and choose from. All woods we use are natural. Patterns, grain structure, colors, knots and holes depend on how the tree was grown and cut, so it’s understandable that every piece will be different.
Follow the link below for a look at the wood samples.
Solid Hardwood – Durable and beautiful
Solid hardwood furniture is beautifully natural. We design and apply our expertise in every piece we make. Our designers and carpenters work together to create a unique piece that works in your style and space. Every hardwood species have unique constraints. Make sure you pick a reliable designer who can make suggestions on materials and finishes. For instance, certain woods in thin planks have an ability to warp. Our designer can decide if a breadboard is necessary or if there is any other ways to reinforce solid hardwood from warping.
Solid Hardwood – Ages with grace
Solid hardwood furniture is exciting as every piece of furniture and surface is different. Tannin in solid hardwood often react with UV light, causing some woods that have a higher tannin content to go deeper and richer in color. Like a good scotch in an oak bourbon cask, the color can express itself into a greater color and the furniture will become more beautiful.

Here’s just some of the solid hardwood furniture we’ve custom made in the past.
We’ve made TV cabinets, shoe cabinets, benches, bar stools, table (lots of tables!) using solid hardwoods like the pieces in the photo: White Oak, Walnut, Red Oak. Other hardwoods we’ve used are exotics like Merbau – a very oily water resistant wood used in outdoor furniture and marine decking.
