LOVE my new table. It looks amazing! I could not be more pleased. He provided personalized service, he answered all of my questions/concerns and he was super easy to work with on this project. It came out exactly the way I wanted and delivery was easy too! I would definitely recommend and look forward to working with him again-hope to order a matching bench soon ;)

This reclaimed wood farm table is amazingly made. I was looking for a table like this for a long time and I finally found it.
I was a bit concern about buying furniture on etsy but the whole process was great. Monkwoodstudio.com was very accommodating answering all the specific questions/concerns and the delivery was painless and on time.
Love my table.

Received my desk two days ago and it was totally worth the wait. Superb craftsmanship, the most beautiful thing in my apartment. Brandon was really great to work with and made my first purchase on Etsy a great experience. This desk just gets me excited to start my next project. 5 stars, best purchase in a long time.

Best peice of furniture I ever bought. See review for Industrial table. THIS IS A WORK OF ART, truly. More beautiful than in pictures. Everyone asks about this piece when they walk into the office. Wonderful people making beautiful art. Worth every penny!

They don't charge enough... THIS IS A WORK OF ART! Any comparable piece of furniture sells for thousands in stores and this one is even nicer. Hand made, natural wood, sun-tanned... doesn't get any better than this! Support artists and fair wages and buy beautiful things made by people, with love. You will see and feel the difference. I cannot be happier. :) Thank you, Brandon. And they are great with follow-up. Best customer service. No 800 numbers to call and wait on hold. JUST WONDERFUL.

"If I was a carpenter, and you were a lady, would you marry me anyway?" - Johnny Cash
We are a husband and wife who like to build our own furniture and then share our designs with you.
Land of Monk and Honey began in 2010 when we moved back to southern California after working as pastors for 7 years in London, England. We arrive back in California with a recession in full swing and jobs few and far between. We now had 3 kids and another on the way, so we decided to become each other's bosses instead.
Since we left most of our possessions in the UK we needed furniture for our small home. Pamela would come up with a 'Honey Do List" along with some killer design ideas and I (Monk) would start building with the little tools and materials we had at the time. We took some photos of our newly made furniture then posted it on Etsy. We are still gratefully amazed at what has happened since this early days. We recently shipped our first International order of 24 desks to a school Tokyo, Japan.
Land of Monk and Honey is our day to day dream of living creatively with each other and our 4 children. They see the whole hands on process up close as we do home school and home business together as part of everyday life around here.
We are thankful and excited for what we get to do and make everyday. We treat our customers like good friends and aim to maintain the same simple work + life recipe that got us started. Thanks for taking the time to browse our shop.
