About

Welcome to our shop located in St Charles MO which is just across the Missiouri River from St Louis MO. We hope you enjoy browsing our collection and will come back often to see what's new. If you have questions or feedback for us, please let us know. Your thoughts are welcome and appreciated.

For many years I have admired and enjoyed quality wood furniture. To me, there is something very special about receiving a gift from nature and making it into a thing of beauty and usefulness which will provide comfortable, reliable service and last for many years.

Over the years I tried making a few things like cabinets, benches, side tables and such - some from plans, some from scratch. While I did achieve some reasonable results, without the time, tools and knowledge, it was nothing special…

For many years I have admired and enjoyed quality wood furniture. To me, there is something very special about receiving a gift from nature and making it into a thing of beauty and usefulness which will provide comfortable, reliable service and last for many years.

Over the years I tried making a few things like cabinets, benches, side tables and such - some from plans, some from scratch. While I did achieve some reasonable results, without the time, tools and knowledge, it was nothing special.

About five years ago, I came across a couple of fine, vintage and once beautiful pieces. They were damaged and destined for the dump. They had well known maker’s names and were made with top quality solid wood and I thought “what a shame.” Well, I brought them home and at that point began to study, research and learn serious restoration, refurbishing and repair techniques.

I was hooked. I began seeking out projects and discovered that the city is like a huge mine, with hidden treasure - sometimes in the most unlikely spots and sometimes in plain view.

Now we are expanding our efforts online to include making more restorations available for purchase, offering custom restorations and introducing our own line of casual, comfortable and functional line of furniture and accessories - The St Charles Wine Country Collection.

Ours is truly a team effort. Besides offering very able advice and assistance in the woodworking shop, my soul mate, the beautiful Terry Marie, produces her own line of custom wine presentation accessories , tote bags, scarves and enjoys dealing in vintage designer clothing.

Again, we hope you enjoy browsing our shop and find something you like. Our selection constantly changes, so check back often. Please contact us with questions or for more information.

Thanks for looking,

Stan and Terry Steen, Proprietors
