A fine piece of furniture becomes part of your family. It's something to cherish and pass down through generations.
Chris Lumley crafted us the entertainment console for our living room (although the term hardly seems worthy). The pieces of wood he chose and his incredible design made it come alive. Our beautiful console has become the subject of many conversations with family and friends who come to visit. Folks can't help but run their hands over its finish and marvel at its beauty.
Chris is a true Vermont craftsman and someone we are fortunate to call a friend.

I approached Chris to build me a new dresser. I had an idea of what I wanted, which was a shaker style three drawer in cherry. Chris came up with some renderings and made suggestions, and we settled on a final design. As work progressed, I received photos of it in various states of completeness, and once finished, he took care of arranging for the delivery. The service he used was responsive, professional, and had no problems getting it up to my 4th floor NYC walk up.
My piece has no mechanical fasteners, and relies only on intricate dovetails and other wooden joints. I have since perused showrooms of high end shaker furniture brands, I have yet to find one without filled holes for fasteners.
I could not be happier with the final result. To anyone looking at buying proper shaker furniture from one of the large brands, I would recommend speaking to Chris instead. He will build you exactly what you want, at a higher quality, and at a reasonable price.
