One morning this week we met Chris Smith of CA Smith Photography at a lovely home in Kennebunkport to photograph some of our newer pieces: the Arris Sofa and Ottoman and a new table which I believe we will be calling the Gates Trestle Table.

The Wilson Dining Table has always been one of our favorites here at Huston & Company. The simplicity of the lightly curved edges of the table and the lean, graceful legs combine for an elegant yet everyday table. It's practical and timeless.

Are you looking for such a dining table? Practical, elegant and timeless? You're in luck. One of our friends here in the Kennebunks is selling his custom Wilson Dining Table and six...

On May 16th, Jason Jackson and I went to a “color development” seminar held at Atlantic Plywood in Westbrook, Maine. Jason is our very talented finisher, and he’s already got the color development thing down. But in recent months we’ve had many requests for custom finishes; finishes different from those we’ve done in the past.

As I work directly with our customers, it falls to me to understand what the customer is asking for, and to then clearly pass that information...

12/8/14 - This table has found a new home.

In 1999, we built this beautiful York Dining Table for a client here in Kennebunkport. She recently decided she no longer needs such a large table and would like to sell it, to give it a good home. She asked if we might be able to spread the word.

This is a standard York Dining Table, made of oak with Wenge inlay.
It measures 30”H x 84”L x 43.5”W and seats 8 very comfortably. It is in good...

Recently, at one of our Tuesday morning shop meetings, Ethan announced that our air compressor had died the day before. He had been keeping an eye on it for quite some time; giving it little fixes and repairs as needed, allowing it to limp along. But now it was, indeed, dead.

The air compressor sends forced air throughout our shop to power all of our pneumatic tools, such as hand sanders and our CNC machine. Without the compressor, we can’t do any sanding, we can’t use our wide-belt sander, our CNC and some of our clamping tools. Heck, we can’t even dust ourselves...

Here we are, moving out of February and into March. In with the lions, as they say. We have been moving quickly forward here at Huston & Company, but looking back also. 2013 was a big year for us; our 25th anniversary year and a very busy one too. We built approximately 105 pieces of residential furniture last year, and over 250 pieces for colleges, schools, libraries and businesses.

As we reflected, I asked each of the guys to tell me their favorite piece of Huston...

Just before Christmas, we all gathered at Flatbread in Portland to celebrate the season and a very exciting and successful 2013. I'm sorry we didn't get pictures of everyone, but as you can see, fun was had by all.

And good food. Lots of good food.
