Our lease has been extended for several months longer in Attleboro.  The sale of the building is taking more time than expected. 
The showroom at 20 John Williams Street is open Saturdays 10 am to 3 pm.  The workshop and office have been moved to our home.  Steve is still building custom furniture from reclaimed materials and antique furniture restoration.  He is available Saturdays to discuss customs projects. 

Steve has been a hoarder of very old salvaged materials for a long time and he has more than he could every use.  We have been selling this collection for the past 20 months!  We still have a huge variety of really good antique and vintage materials such as wood, beams, metal bases, carts, hand tools, hardware, doors, windows, etc.  There is no junk here!  Great stuff for do-it-yourselfers, antique dealers, hand crafters, sign makers and home makers.   

We are also selling Steve's "creative art furniture" in Attleboro such as farm tables, end tables, kitchen islands, coffee tables, etc.  Stop in often to see what's available.  The best way to contact us is [email protected].

Texture and Paint

Our Secret Ingredient?  It's our Paint, Finish and Durability.

 

Through the years Stephen has studied and worked in restoration from small pantry boxes to wonderful buildings.   He has been fascinated by the importance of "texture".  Even as he scans the countless decorator magazines, it is obvious texture creates the ambiance whether in fabric, wall coverings or furniture.  Stephen believes that a fine creation can be destroyed by an inadequate finish.  Spending some time working with a sculptor friend whose medium is Styrofoam that he shapes and epoxy coats before applying stone effect finishes, Stephen was enlightened to a style of texturing previously unknown to him

This sculptor's techniques coupled with Stephen's years of study and practice of the painted finish has brought a new found dimension to a method already admired by my peers.  Great lengths are taken to bring the original colors, tones and character out of the fabulous wood acquired.  In short, the trick is to bring forth the original time worn surface and not to produce a new one.

You will find our furniture to create an atmosphere all their own adding a warmth and tone that will set forth your deepest creativity.

As were the turnings of our forefathers, our turnings are made one at a time, by hand.  Slight variances in calibration are welcome evidence of true hand work.  An even greater feat is to finish these turnings so they look 200 years old.  Paint has to be worn to the right degree in the right locations.  Even little details like the protruding peg worn ever so slightly by the abrasions of time truly denote the utmost attention to detail.

The interplay of deep contrasting colors has always been our favorite.  Note here the addition on the panel of some light faux graining.

Our antique White paint has always been a favorite as it compliments any decor.

With proper manipulation of existing finishes and the (quite erratic at times) use of glazes, finishes can actually take on the look and feel of leather.

Please be reminded here that you are looking at brand new wood made to look old.
