Commission Work                                                                     Home

 

Do you appreciate hand-cut dovetails, special and rare timbers, live edges? Can't find the piece that you want? Want to design your own furniture but need someone to craft it? Would you like to incorporate that beautiful backyard tree that the last storm blew down into a work of art that celebrates the tree's spirit? Don’t you just love the natural, raw qualities of nature’s timbers?

 

  

 

Please contact either Sandy or Gary if you are interested in having a special piece of furniture art created just for you and your particular requirements.

 

  

 

Commissioned work includes private art collectors; corporate/commercial art; execution of interior designers' custom designs; execution of designs by individuals who desire to spread their horizons; and design/execution provided to assist with the realization of your style.

 

  

 

Contrary to popular belief, commission work can often provide an affordable alternative to purchasing off-the-rack, mass-produced pieces. And unlike so much of today’s furniture, our custom pieces are designed and crafted to stand the test of time and remain in use for generations.

 

Recent projects include matching walnut-burl side tables; a massive 600+ pound, 11-1/2 foot wide walnut bed; a pair of matching live-edge spalted maple bedside tables; boat tables; bookcases; coffee tables; display tables (including a special one for the Coupeville Library); display cases; a chess table; a maple/purpleheart kiosk for Whidbey General Hospital; a massive 4 foot by 10 foot custom table; etc. Some of these are shown below...
