Arts and Crafts or Craftsman style furniture is some of the most simplistically beautiful and durable furniture available. I say my furniture is "authentically hand crafted". This means each board is hand selected for both beauty and strength and every part is cut, fitted, sanded, and finished by hand, no computerized equipment is used. The best types of joinery are always used in the pieces found here, rather that be mortise and tenon, lap joints, dovetails, etc. The finish used on these pieces is some of the best available it holds up extremely well against water and UV damage. In short this furniture is built to last and of some of the highest quality available. We hope you will enjoy our heirloom quality finishing.
The Greene and Greene inspired lighting is also authentically hand crafted using hand selected Mahogany with real ebony. The best types of joinery are used for the construction of the fixtures. These fixtures are finished with hand made copper foil glass panels. This process is very involved each lead line outlines an individual piece of glass. These pieces are cut and ground, fitted together and the wrapped with copper foil. Once this is done the pieces are soldered together. The processes for building one of the fixtures can take several weeks.
