Words cannot describe how beautiful this piece came out. It is the show piece of our family room and receives compliments from everyone who sees it. Kandas and Shane were wonderful to work with...very patient with us in designing a custom piece. For anyone looking to have a quality piece of furniture made to their wishes, this is the place to go!

"I purchased my bed in 1998 and it is still sturdy and as good as it was when we bought it." - Leslie Watson, Texas

"This bed is the best investment we've made in a long time." - Roger Wallace, Arizona

"It's been almost a year since my tiger maple pencil post bed arrived and I just wanted you to know that I love it as much if not more than when I first put it together. . . Seriously, it is so beautiful and stunning and envied by all my friends. I travel a lot now and so hate sleeping anywhere else but on my bed. You are a true craftsman and should be very proud of the work you do." - Tate Taylor, Los Angeles, CA, Director/Executive Producer/Screenwriter "The Help"

"ShãKa Studios" comes from a combination of the names of the owners: Shane and Kandas Rodarte. Shane is an accomplished artist and furniture maker for over 28 years. He remembers a little girl in six grade telling him as he was doodling, “You are going to be an artist one day.” Although his artistic talents started at a young age, his passion for furniture making came later at the age of 17 where he started out in his father’s shop in Saginaw Michigan making replacement doors and drawers for his father’s rental units.

He then moved to Bryan Texas in 1986 to help his mother renovate a farm house that she had just acquired. He then built and refinished furniture out of his garage and in 1987 and Wood Designs was born. For seven years he practiced his craft in Bryan Texas.

In 1994 he then moved to Houston where he partnered up with his brothers. Were they did custom built-ins, furniture, and manufactured products for large furniture chains. In 1997 he met his wife Kandas and decided to concentrate on primitive works, and in 1998 ShãKa Studios was created.

ShãKa Studios was one of the first custom furniture companies to appear on the internet. Since then ShãKa Studios has shipped to every state in the continental United States, and a couple countries including Panama and the UK. Shane has remarked on interview once or twice, “There is little bit of me everywhere, even on Broadway.”

In April of 2014 Kandas was diagnose with breast cancer. Knowing that this will change their life and the way they do business. Shane has decided to focus on more of the artistic genre of ShãKa Studios product line. He will also be collaborating and incorporating other local Texas artist to broaden ShãKa Studios portfolio.

Our Mission in 2014 is to offer a wide range of artistic good that are in balance with nature, body and our souls. Not just for the here and now but for the past, present and future.

What are ShãKa Studios influences? The discipline of a Japanese garden and the simplicity of a Shaker. That all things have purpose and all empty spaces have voices.

We sincerely hope you enjoy what ShãKa Studios has to offer.
