Announcement    Welcome to East Side! We pride ourselves on the careful artistry and attention that goes into every single handmade item.

Our tobacco lath frames and decor is made from naturally weathered material, making each piece uniquely beautiful. Thank you for stopping by!

Our full line of beautiful frames have been used by needlework designers for the past 25 years and are fully customizable for your needlework, art or best-selling products.

In 2019 with the support of several family members, we started creating small occasional furniture as well in an effort to create full-time work for me, which has worked out! We now stock several items in this line and are willing all your custom needs. The wood that we use for this furniture is reclaimed oak fence boards, which creates a very solid and beautiful piece of furniture that will last for years.

In 2021 due to popular demand, we released a whole new line of poplar furniture that is finished with a very unique and elegant texture that will be sure to catch the eyes of anyone that walks into your house!

Introducing: The MetaWood Collection

This exclusive line of hand-crafted furniture features a seamless integration of metal and wood.

Many of the pieces combine powder-coated matte black rebar and specially finished poplar wood to create a modern industrial look.

Our proprietary water-based finish is particularly unique. It transforms the poplar wood into an oak feel, drawing out the grain and enhancing the look dramatically. You can feel the texture, but the finish is smooth with no snags or harsh edges, making it wipeable and easy to maintain.

Our customers have told us that "feeling is believing." MetaWood is elegant, eye-catching and innovative, quickly defining a new style in design and finish. These leading-edge conversation pieces will be a dynamic new addition to your collection.

Best of all, this poplar-based furniture has the look of oak, but without the weight or cost, and all produced locally in the USA.

=================================

Background:
Located in the Amish community in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania (near Lancaster county), my business started as a hobby in 2012. With a background in construction and woodcraft, I became interested in working with tobacco lath because of the originality and rawness of the wood. I enjoy the simple process of “using what you have” and showcasing the natural history of the material.

I started with the common star design, and soon my customers helped shape the product line by providing input and requests for new pieces. In fact, the framed prints came directly from a customer request. I attempt to make each design unique and try to add a couple new items each year.

The lath currently used on our frames and crafts is the wood used to dry tobacco. I obtain it from local farm dispersal auctions. The tobacco lath is dark, natural wood used to dry tobacco naturally weathered from years of use. This ensures that every piece has its own unique character, unlike any other. The material we use is hard to find, which makes your decor even more valuable.

In 2013, I started promoting the crafts and decor to the local showcase in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

In 2018, I acquired and re-opened East Side Frames, a long-standing business much loved by stitchwork designers, retails and wholesalers alike.

I am excited to now open up this shop here at Etsy. I hope you enjoy these products! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any custom requests.
