My name is Jamie.
I make heirloom furniture that is not just a part of your house. I make furniture that is a part of your life.
Unlike forgettable mass-produced furniture stained and camouflaged to resemble wood, my furniture is more than a temporary function. A well-made, solid wood piece of furniture has purpose in its beauty as well as its function. Wood has a life and a personality of its own. It cannot be mass produced from a factory. It has grain, movement, depth. It is deceptively both light and strong. When crafted with attention, it is smooth and unresistant to your touch. When free from stains and paints that mask its nature-created art, it has a gentle, welcoming smell.
I design furniture that is simple and understated with a complexity that will reveal itself as you live your life with it. Its richness will add to the quality of your life as you and your loved ones return to it again and again.
The furniture I build for you will last the years of your life. The entry table will welcome you home and greet your guests. The dining table will take on the marks of the wine you share, the scratches of your children’s use, the wear on the bookshelf where you remove and return your favorite books over and over. A well-made piece of furniture connects people. The value of genuine wood furniture increases because your life presses memory into it. Memories that are handed down to future generations.
I make furniture that is worth life, time, and investment.
