Our Guiding Principles
We produce a significant portion of the wood furniture that we offer at our workshop located in the former Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Our production focuses on producing solid wood residential furniture. Our materials; often cherry, walnut, maple or oak, are sourced locally.
We employ traditional, time tested, construction techniques; mortise and tenon joints, dovetailed drawers; all hallmarks of fine craftsmanship that we have strived to achieve for 35 years.
Our finishing process employs plant oils, waxes and resins; the entire process deemed safe both for our employees as well as our clients. It is important to us, the makers, who labor every day in the shop, that our work contain no toxic substances and that none be employed in our process.
Several design themes, derived from stlying traditions in our heritage, flavor our work.
Our production process is a blend of traditional wood working integrated with computer aided design and manufacturing techniques. This process, enabled by the nature of computer controlled manufacturing, returns a bit of the cabinetmaking methods of two hundred years ago. We achieve efficiencies making one piece at a time.
We are happy to make modifications to our designs where practical to suit a particular need. Indeed much of our work is customized variations on our standard repertoire.
We invite your visit to our showroom to see examples of our work in person and discuss your particular needs.
