Hi there and welcome to my workshop! My name is Allen and I specialize in making mantels, floating shelves, and built-ins for your home. I work exclusively with premium, furniture grade lumber and have fine tuned a very natural looking, distressed finish in hardwood Alder (it is more than banging it with hammers and chains, haha). My process gives a rustic, reclaimed look, yet is very refined and smooth to the touch - perfect for farmhouse style mantels and shelves. Premium lumbers like maple, white oak and walnut are also available and are typically left smooth for a more modern look.
I spent the last 12 years in another very creative field so I understand the importance of meeting client expectations with high quality work and attention to small details. I am just a one man shop doing everything from meeting and measuring, building and finishing, and even installing, which ensures a level of craftsmanship that is hard to find these days. But it does limit the size of projects I can take on - I specialize in projects that range from under $1000 to $5000. Larger scale projects are sometimes possible, but depend on the overall size and time frame needed.
Fill out the contact page or shoot me a txt to set up a meeting or even get some ballpark numbers. I generally come to your place to show samples and then send you a detailed quote. I'm happy to work with individual homeowners, general contractors, remodelers, and designers.
