About Us


After having worked for a custom woodwork company in Seattle for about twelve years, I came to appreciate the natural beauty in wood and the quality of handmade furniture. Working for this Seattle based company, I have been involved in many different aspects of the cabinet making industry while building residential as well as commercial high end cabinetry. 

As a result, I developed a great passion for woodworking, believing that great furniture does not just happen; it is an art that requires a lot of thought, inspiration and fine craftsmanship.

While still in the northwest, my dream was to open a shop where I could be creative and design my own furniture, with the possibility of passing it down as a legacy to my children. In order to make that dream a reality, our family moved to Missouri where I grew up and opened our shop. We're located in Franklin County, but offer services to the entire St. Louis metro area and beyond.

Since opening the shop, I've been very busy balancing work demands and spending precious time with my family. We spend a lot of time outdoors while introducing our children to so many of nature's wonders, from insects and leaves, to how trees grow and so on... It is amazing how kids are so fascinated by nature. I myself am in awe of the surrounding nature and I believe that we need to be good stewards of the resources that have been entrusted to us. In our effort to form a more sustainable living, we're starting to do some work with reclaimed wood and often work with local suppliers who harvest wood responsibly. We also planted one hundred trees in the spring of 2011 and will continue planting more in the coming years. We may not be around to see these trees fully grown, but the future generations will enjoy them and hopefully continue in our efforts to make this world a better and more enjoyable place for everyone.

It is my hope that we can establish a working relationship and become a resource for your future projects.


Sincerely, Cris Saleniuc
