A customer called yesterday asking if we sold solid wood furniture. When we explained to him that all of our furniture is handmade of solid wood that is harvested locally and regionally he couldn't believe it. He had been searching for solid wood furniture for quite awhile and was frustrated by the fact that upon closer inspection, none of the companies he had contacted actually did sell solid wood furniture.
The problem is, there is no universally agreed upon definition for solid wood furniture. So, as with claims that furniture is American made, we find that so called solid wood furniture is often made of particle board, pressed cardboard and thin sheets of fake wood veneers.

Looking for a custom wooden table for your kitchen, dining room, hallway or living room? Did you know you can have a table custom made to order at the same price you would pay for a similar table out of a big box store or warehouse?
One of the advantages of buying a custom table is that you can tailor the dimensions to fit precisely into the space you’ve allotted in your home. Using the drop down menus on Vermont Woods Studios website, you can choose from nearly 80 different solid wood dining tables. Each table can be ordered in about 25 different sizes or you can call and order a unique custom size.
You can also customize the shape of your table top (rectangular, oval, boat, octagon), the shape and height of the table legs, the type of wood used, the finish, the edge profile and more. Want a drawer in the table top? How about a counter height table? Because each of our tables is made to order, it’s easy and affordable to customize them.
Vermont furniture makers offer custom tables in many styles and sizes, including farm tables, dining room tables, sofa tables, coffee tables, end tables and ultra luxury artisan designed custom tables. If you don’t see exactly what you want, give us a call. We’ll work with you to build a custom table that fits your style and budget.

We just received this photo from one of our craftsman. Wouldn't this computer workstation help you organize your home office and work more efficiently?
The unit is made of sustainably harvested, solid cherry wood and it has a non-toxic lacquer finish that provides great protection from the rigors of all that hard work you're doing at home. If you accidentally spill a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) on it, it's none the worse for wear.
