We had a special order come in for a custom built loft bed for a rather small room. It was requested to have a book case on the end and to have the option to move the bottom bed closer to the window or away from it. The home owner wanted it to be painted to match the trim work in the room.
We got the work done and installed it while the children were away with their mom. What a nice thing to come home to!
We just got done installing ahandrail system that a customer requsted. When he hadhis house built, he had a standard handrail installed.
He had envisioned having telescopic, boxed newel posts and straight balusters painted white.
After meeting with him, he decided he wanted walnut handrail and stair nosing with the newel posts and balusters painted white.
Warren had bought the lumber and started cutting out all the pieces to make 4 posts, of which 2 were large, and 2 were shorter, and 2 face fronts to apply to the walls. He then cut and sized up the balusters to fit the stairway.
After that, we painted the posts and balusters with the paint the homeowner requested, and stained and finished the rail and stair nosing. Now it is ready for installation.
In one day we installed the top banister an in two days the rest was completed.
After it was installed, the customer said it is better than what he’d imagined.

One of the projects we love making is brand new furniture. We had a young lady and her fiancée come to us with their dreams of a rustic dresser and matching book shelf.
They liked the thought of using #1 common cherry, which we had in stock.
She liked the idea of cutting in recessed heart shaped handles.
After a couple of weeks, we had the dresser complete.
Now to get started on the matching bookcase. ? We used birch plywood for the back and solid cherry for the sides and shelves. We used curly maple for the raised panel doors and then used cherry as the trim work around the cabinet.
If you need new furniture that you just can’t find anywhere else, contact us to help create what you’re looking for.
We have been in the process of making a custom chest of drawers. The young lady who requested it, wanted It to be rustic cherry.
Warren really enjoys making hand cut dovetails on the furniture he makes. He assembled the frame of the furniture with the hand cut, but with the drawers he wanted to do it a bit differently due to there are a lot of drawer boxes to make.
Since hand cutting the dovetails would take quite some time, he wanted to use his dovetail jig, but due to the size of the jig, he decided to make one on a larger scale to match the authentic look that he is after.
The jig he has would cut half inch dovetails, so, Warren started designing a jig to cut three quarters inch dovetails. It only took him a couple of days to get it completed.
The jig worked perfectly! Now the drawer boxes are on their way to being completed.
We have had folks ask us, “So, what kind of woodworking do you do?” And to that we say, “Custom!”
So, what does custom mean? The first meaning is “a habitual practice, the usual way of acting”. While that fits us, what does that mean to you? Another definition is, “made specially for individual customers.” It’s about finding out what YOU want and making it to YOUR satisfaction.
Customers often bring hand sketched drawings or photos from the internet and ask, “Can you make this?” We usually can, and enjoy making the unique project for them.

You know how it is when you have company and you need to enlarge the table. Well, this one customer has this beautiful white oak harvest table that would not work properly.
The table had jute straps that were not attached completely to the leaves of the table. The leaves were jamming when the table was being shortened. It took some effort to pull and push to work the slides.
We took the leaves out and worked on getting the straps attached in their proper place, then we discovered a skid board was missing, fortunately we had a scrap board in the tool box that was just the ticket.
We took bar soap, (paraffin wax is the best) and rubbed the wooden tracks underneath to get them to run smoother and quickly.
The table now is working very smoothly! We were able to close it up nicely.
