Our Shop and Setting

We live and work in Wimberley, Texas, in the Texas HIll Country, thirty five miles from Austin.

We started this business in a barn with a certain charm and a giant live oak shade tree but without good light, insulation, or enough room.  The cowboy concrete floor was so rough it wore out our boots.  In July 2000, we bought this place and all hands went to work on construction.  In early 2001, we were making furniture in a new shop with good light, good insulation, and almost enough room.  We were awarded a Green Building Certificate by the City of Austin.

On this land, we built a house for Gary and Leslie.  On the adjoining place, Austin and his family built their house.

As needed, we have added smaller buildings.
