We pride ourselves at our willingness 
and ability to offer our customers custom work. We are happy to build something that you have dreamed of or adapt something that is currently in one of our Collection. 
Often we can modify dimensions, wood specie, finish, color and some  details. 
Below are pictures of custom sold work.

Side table crafted from 130 year old salvaged exterior oak barn boards
Cabinet crafted from the sane  vintage barn wood used for the table above this.
Again, same vintage 130 year old barn wood bur crafted into an awesome clock.
This very large coffee table is crafted from the same 130 year old antique oak barn wood but the wood has been planed to show the beautiful mineral deposits and character, The table top is the exterior boards and the legs are crafted from some of the barn beams.
This is a Sassafras side board for outdoor dining deck. It went with a beautiful matching dining table that had two  long side benches 
With the exception of the batten that attaches  the table top to the base there are no screws or nails in this table. The base is entirely hand cut mortise and tenon construction with a hand carved peg attaching the cross rail. 
This table was custom designed and crafted from 160 year old heartwood Pine that was originally the floor joists for a road side inn. We planed  all of the boards. to show the magnificent mineral deposits, grain and nail holes. 
For my oldest son, Marc Ashley's 21st birthday I built him this live edge coffee table from Honey Locust wood. From the same tree I kept a 12 foot long board to build my youngest son, Dustin Rain's 21st birthday gift.
This very tall live edge mantel pendulum clock is what I designed and hand-crafted for Dustin's 21st birthday. It is built  using wood that was from the same Honey Locust tree that his older brother's table was crafted from. 
This customer had an antique table that had been left to her by her Mom that she really wanted to use but  the table top was in unrepairable condition and just didn't have the look that she wanted.
She brought me a picture out of a magazine that showed a very rustic table top with a lot of grain figuring in it. She loved it. This is what I built for her. It is highly figured oak with a hand applied finish. I custom painted the frame and adapted it to an all wood top. I had already restored, re-finished and re-upholstered the antique  oak chars for her, It made an awesome set for her beautiful home.
Beautiful Rustic Branch Stool made for a repeat  customer in Missouri. The mortises were cut with an antique brace drill, the tenons were hand cut with my carving knife and the seat is hand woven splint in the Herringbone pattern. 
​We completely rebuilt this table. It started life in the 1920's as a kitchen table. 
After  several hours of taking apart and rebuilding followed by a hand painted and French Polish finish it turned into this beautiful Romantic Prairie/Shabby Chic coffee table.
Its new home is just out side of Las Vegas with a customer that fell in love with it!
