Introducing our new Newton Tables!

We are thrilled to introduce our new range of dining and coffee tables: The Newton Tables.

The Newton Tables balance the lightheartedness of mid-century modern design with the longevity of handcrafted, hardwood furniture, creating a timelessness that works in most any décor. There’s even a hint of campaign furniture thrown in there!

Our Newton range includes two dining tables, available with or without an extension; and two coffee tables. All of the tables in the Newton range are offered in two signature...

My stack of catalog price lists has dwindled down to a very small pile, begging us to get to the printer for some more. This process begins, of course, with a review of all of our prices in case we need to make changes. This time around, we do need to make changes.

So, we will be issuing new prices on our signature designs - those found on our website and catalog - on June 10th.

And that means…THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO PLACE AN ORDER! If you are considering a new piece of furniture from our catalog, order before June 10th to ensure you receive the current price.

To feed his love of woodworking, he began to dabble in turning: reading books, experimenting with different tools and lathes. He’s never taken a wood turning class. He taught himself how to sharpen his own tools too. He’s into it...
