Experience & Creativity

Reconnecting with a childhood passion for woodworking after retirement from corporate America, I now utilize both my engineering and artisian backgrounds to produce one-of-a-kind functional works of art that are built to last.

Our Process

We sawmill 100%Texas Hill Country Cedar (ashe juniper) and South Texas mesquite for all of our furniture creations. These trees are hardwoods and possesses a naturally high oil content for durability and longevity as well as unique grain and coloration patterns much like the human fingerprint.

Uncompromising Quality and Limited Quantity

All of our outdoor furniture has a MINIMUM of 3 coats of marine grade urethane, exterior Rust-Oleum coated screws, and galvanized or stainless hardware for both lasting appearance and durability thoughout the years. I am a USDA Biopreferred (Green) builder creating usuable lumber from a renewable resource.

I build each one-of-a-kind piece of furniture one-at-a-time, so you won't find mass quantities of anything in my current inventory. I am NOT a big box store. I have a  4 - 6 week construction interval on most items, so if I don't have an item in stock you can order it.
