We are thankful for our 44 years, grateful to our employees who have made it possible, and lucky for customers who appreciate our work. As we continue the process of closing, we remind our customers and fans that we have ceased production and are not accepting any custom, casegood, new, or Etsy orders. Plainly, we are closing.
Finally, Don is in fine health, holding forth with advice and opinions from the genius of Mark Twain, the brilliance of Neil deGrasse Tyson to the ineffectiveness of Congress, the merits of plum pudding and the history of art, war and human nature.

Adapted from a Massachusetts desk circa 1760. Most of the credit for making this tall piece (despite my drawings) of more than 230 parts goes to our former machine room foreman, Joe Brooks, his successor Tim Smith, and Mike Lingerfelt.
A working desk, it has been in production since 1972.
