Modern-american-furniture
We're adding a new line of furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.  It's called the Modern American Furniture Collection. Check out this  mid-century style buffet.  It's handcrafted in Vermont from solid black walnut wood.  Kind of a blend of Art Deco and Scandinavian design, don't you think?

This is a brand new collection with new pieces emerging over the next few months.  Check back often to see the collection evolve.

Cabinet Maker Will Sampson
Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture  is proud to be featured in the very well respected woodworking industry journal, Cabinet Maker.  We want to thank Will Sampson for his insightful article about our furniture business and how it fits into the dynamic and challenging world of fine furniture retailing in the USA. 

Besides being a writer and editor at Cabinet Maker, Will is also the author of SawdustSoup, a blog for professional woodworkers seeking to continuously improve their craft.  We salute Will for his fine work at Cabinet Maker.

Shaker-dining-table
Everyone loves the idea of having a solid wood custom Shaker dining table handcrafted just for them.  What's not to love?  Pick your favorite wood, order the table to fit perfectly into your dining room…a handcrafted dining table, made especially for you by skilled craftsmen in Vermont who use eco-friendly, sustainably harvested natural hardwoods.  Add in free shipping and a lifetime guarantee and who could argue?

Well, the biggest reservation our customers have is the fact that it takes time to make quality fine furniture– often as much as 8-12 weeks plus shipping time.  So we've partnered with our craftsmen to select a number of our most popular dining tables and we've improved our crafting logistics so we can have them built for you in just 2-3 weeks.  Check out our Quick Craft furniture selection and let us know what you think.

I found this quote on Ann Stone's blog today but she had credited Donald Cooper.  Whoever said it, I love it!  We've been working from our home office and Annette's farm for 5 years now and I feel certain we could not have come this far if we had had the added expense of an additional office all these years.

It seems to have worked pretty well for the Queen, the Pope and the President, so who's to argue?  Well, maybe Bongo– it does cut into his lounging space from time to time.
