Beautiful stool and is perfect for my little ones room. Other stools have the lower step part of the way under the top. This turned into an issue for our girl. This stool has two wide steps perfect for when she tries to climb down from bed. Fast delivery and beautiful work.
In today's disposable world I'm making furniture for today and heirlooms for tomorrow.
In the 90's there was a high-school wood-shop teacher in the small town of Minonk, IL, the late Richard Funk. He left the world all to early, but before he did, he instilled in a few students an appreciation of early American craftsmanship and the knowledge of how to get it done.
Early on I took a liking to the simple, timeless designs and craftsmanship that the Shaker community brought forth. Though simple in appearance, their designs were engineered to last several lifetimes, and most did.
In today's world of disposable furniture made of veneered particle board, I wanted to make furniture that would last several lifetimes. 17 years in the U.S. Army have given me the unique experience of many different cultures, combined with extensive study and an artist's appreciation for wood as a medium, it shows strongly in my work.
Thank you visiting my shop and supporting the Etsy community of artisans. -Chris
Owner, Maker, Designer
Chris is active duty Army but woodworking is his calling. His dream piece is a Sam Maloof inspired rocking chair and, along with owning a walnut tree farm, plans to turn his love of woodworking into a career path.
I handle the finances and the majority of the Etsy site. Occasionally I get a hand in the creative process but my main job is keeping sawdust out of the house. I'm also responsible for the not so great photography.

Watch And Learn
We like to recycle scrap wood into our own projects, play in sawdust, and go help buy supplies. We DO NOT like to help mom clean up but we do it anyway.
