About TownFarmDesign

Sales 37
On Etsy since 2016

Hello, and thank you for looking at my Etsy site.

My name is Jeff Stangroom. My wife Diane and I live in New England with my mother in the family home which has been in our family for over a hundred years and has seen five generations of our family.

“Town Farm” Design, comes from our family home. Built circa 1738 by Captain Joseph Butterfield and purchased by my great grandfather around 1911. Years ago, while researching the history of the house, we found that in the mid 1800’s the town purchased the house, and for a number of years it served as the “Town Farm” where folks down on their luck would work for their room and board until they got back on their feet or moved on.

The focus of Town Farm Design is mainly wood, but I will also delve into other medias if inspiration strikes. I like to use repurposed wood whenever possible, pallets, barn boards, furniture that’s beyond restoration, or anything hardwood heading for the landfill. I also mill some of my own wood from dead or dying trees on our six acres. When I do need to purchase wood, such as exotics, I purchase sustainable woods whenever possible.

Although other projects will show up here from time to time, the main theme of this Etsy site will be boxes for now, each one hand made, a one of a kind piece signed by maker. I like to experiment with design elements, joinery and finishes. Most of my boxes are the woods natural colors. I don’t regularly use stains, only clear finishes of various kinds. Many of my boxes have individual hand made wood hinges with brass pins.

You could find anything from a simple recipe card box to a multifaceted steampunk box with legs here.
