If your dining room (or kitchen) table doesn't work, how long will you put up with it?
Measure your table, measure the room and space it goes in, and consider having some custom furniture made that will make you - and those you love - much more comfortable. You deserve it!

Private Client, Flushing, MI
This dictionary stand was made for an elderly client who had always toyed with the idea of “doing a little writing”. Her husband had passed away in recent months and she decided it was time to get on with it. The piece was nicely proportioned but not quite as tall as what one might expect a dictionary stand to be. Though a bit shorter than normal, the piece actually appears considerably taller if the client is next to it as she is of diminutive stature.
Overall, a nice piece with classic lines, an additional shelf and functional accessory drawer.

Commission a custom piece of furniture built to your size, color, and wood preference. The first time you come into my shop, we discuss your needs, style preference, likes and dislikes, and talk about the other furniture in your home. It is helpful to have photos or sketches of what you’re looking for if you already have a good idea of what you want. If you don’t have these, it’s okay! It also helps to know rough (or precise) dimensions of both the area in which your piece of furniture will go, and the size that you want the furniture to be.
Our first meeting is usually an information-gathering time; a time for you to tell what you want, a chance for me to tell you what might work best and give you any ideas I have. After our discussion, I will usually prepare a sketch , “blueprint” and price quote based on our decisions. Once it is shown to you, and you agree on the style and projected price of the completed project, a deposit is given to begin purchase of materials and start construction. If your new furniture needs to match the color of other furniture in your home, you will be asked to bring in a sample of your furniture (like a drawer front) so that I can specially prepare the right finish for your wood.
When your new furniture is close to completion, you will receive a call and/or email giving a finish date for pick-up.
Quite often, people think that having a piece of furniture made especially for you is very expensive, but that’s not usually the case. What you end up with is exactly what you want, in the size you want it, and in a better quality than what you can normally buy from the store. Your new furniture will last for generations, and will be something you will be proud to show off to your friends and relatives.
In essence, Wood… Works. Check out the commission pages on my website, http://www.moseyswoodworks.com/ and see for yourself what other people have had specially made for their homes. Then, start dreaming!
