    Steve is absolutely wonderful to work with. Our camper dog house is just perfect. Once we ordered all along the way Steve kept us updated of the progress and consulted us so we could pick colors etc. He pays special attention to every detail. We are absolutely thrilled with our purchase. Would definitely recommend!! Thank you

    I'm very pleased with the quality of the product that I ordered. If you are purchasing the cellphone it really is a cute gift for toddlers. Mine loves it. I was also pleased with the customer service.

    Just got it in the mail today and I love it! Great quality, a reasonable price, shipped quickly, and I received updates from the owner as my order progressed. Would definitely recommend to other.

    I was too excited to wait for Christmas and gave this to my tot the minute it arrived! It was an exciting moment for the little one! She held it up to her ear and gave it many kisses. Even the dog got to pretend to call grandma! The picture is very clear. Also, I love that the seller included an extra "phone" for free! The "screen" is a bit off center and so high up it's over the edge a bit. The clear coat is pooled and bubbled in several areas. It is also chunkier than I thought and would be easier to hold if it was half the thickness. Overall, the seller is sweet and kind and the product is very VERY cute and a big hit.

    This is the cutest thing ever! We got one for our 15 year old dog to lounge in when we’re in the hot tub. Steve is awesome and customized it for us with “Lifeguard”! The workmanship is fantastic and Steve’s communication and speed of delivery are second to none. Thank you Steve from us and Ollie the Havanese!

    Thanks Steve. I originally ordered the chair to complete my summer decoration theme. When I received it, my great grand daughter, who is three, definitely had a different idea. She just loves the chair. The work quality and craftsmanship of the chair is A+. Thanks Steve for the love that went into making something special for me and my great grand daughter who now calls the chair "hers" . She sits in almost everyday. Love you work.

    Steve, the owner of this shop... is just great... not to mention how good his product is. I ordered his custom adirondack chairs . They were delivered timely, and the craftsman ship is just beautiful. Steve kept me apprised of his build cycle so sent me a txt when the product was shipped. I cannot say enough good things about Steve and his products. FIVE STARS for STEVE and BigCreekMercantile

    There couldn’t be a more impressive or perfect Etsy purchase out there! Steve kept me updated during the FAST building process with messages and pictures. Then my pup’s sunbathing chair arrived earlier then expected and expertly packages! Riley loves watching the world go by from my deck and now she can do so in style! Already had lots of compliments from neighbors passing by! Thanks for such a beautiful piece of handmade art!

"I won't rest until every dog can."

As a Carpenter, I built my first chair so I could relax and watch the sunset at the end of my day. When neighbors would stop by, they’d ask me to build one for them too. Then, I realized my dog needed his own matching chair! Furniture for dogs and their humans...that's how it all started. Handmade. Everyday.

My company is named after the logging and saw mill company owned and operated by my Dad and my Uncles: Big Creek Lumber Company.

    I built my 1st bookshelf at 14. I learned when I combined the art of design with the shaping of material, worth and value was produced in both product and person. My path was clear.
