OUR STORY

For more than 10 years, we’ve been making fine furniture for customers from across the country: from New England, to Georgia, to California, to Alaska.

We started in Newburyport, MA and moved a couple times until settling nearby in a post and beam workshop in Greater Newburyport. With a love for antique furniture and traditional joinery methods, we continue to combine those interests as we design and build new pieces.

 

About the Maker

Michael O'Doherty Moore’s woodworking journey is decades old. The making of a kitchen with antique wood for a 200-year-old Maine farmhouse kindled a passion for woodworking. That extensive project led to others. Eventually, he decided to change careers to design and make furniture full-time. While many furniture periods influence his designs, he particularly appreciates American Federal Period furniture.

Michael is a leader of the Guild of New Hampshire’s Hand Tools & Carving Group. For this non-profit educational group, he also served in the past as an officer and Steering Committee member.
