What an outstanding experience from beginning to end! What I needed (custom stools) wasn't quite what Chester had posted in his store -- but when I emailed him and started asking him about alternatives and modifications, he was immediately responsive, again and again. He had thoughtful design solutions to accommodate our needs, and he promptly drew up plans and sent them for our approval. And while the work was "custom," after a fashion, Chester picked a fair price in line with his other furniture. Then the stools were hand-delivered *way* ahead of schedule. Trust me, if you like what you see in the shop, this is the guy you want to be making your furniture!

Excellent stool. It is well crafted and the woods used to construct it are beautiful. Would definitely purchase additional pieces of furniture from this seller.

This beautiful walnut stool is a quality handmade item that will outlive me! The attention to detail and use of fine materials makes it an item to treasure. Its generous contoured seat is remarkably comfortable, and the overall feel is one of solidity and stability. Combine all that with quick, pleasant, and personalized service, and I can honestly say this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I most highly recommend this very talented woodworker.

About

Handmade furniture is more enjoyable for both user and maker.

My process is simple and clean, I use locally salvaged trees and lumber. A dangerous tree removed from a yard can be turned into a one of a kind dining table or chairs, or hardwood beams removed from an old barn can be repurposed into a set of stools or a bench. Here in Asheville, NC and the surrounding areas this is a common practice and I feel lucky to be amongst fellow woodworkers and artists with a common goal. Most of the time I can tell clients where the boards used in thier project came from, and which local sawyer milled them. This process supports local tree services, sawyers, kiln operaters, galleries, and many more. When you invest in a piece of furniture from me, you also invest in the community and the envirnoment.

Should all furniture last generations? I think so. Investing in handmade furniture is exactly that, an investment. My goal is to create well-made family heirlooms with hardwoods and fine craftsmanship.
I consider my original designs to be somewhat minimalist; keeping it clean, simple, and comfortable.

Joinery is what makes a craftsman. Today manual skills are somewhat rare and I take pride in them. I believe making a quality product is the best way to pay respect to my clients. Handmade work catches your eye, it warms your soul; people want honest goods, and that's what I make.
