Pencil post bed in solid cherry

"We have had our pencil-post bed for two years now, and we absolutely love it. The solid cherry has aged beautifully to a deep, rich red, and the bed has been the object of many compliments. We relocated recently, and disassembling and re-assembling the bed was a very smooth process. We look forward to having this stunning piece in our family for generations to come!"

"We had a custom toy chest made by Lighthouse Woodworking. We loved the personal service and attention to every detail. The custom ordering was easy and the delivery timely. We will highly recommend Lighthouse Woodworking to our closest friends in the market for traditional custom made furniture."

"Thanks for your diligence in making sure it is the right fit and form. That's what I like about working with Lighthouse Woodworking; you guys take the time to ask the right questions to ensure 100% customer satisfaction the first time."

"An instant classic. The tiger maple's intricate pattern is beautifully enriched by the finish. The slender legs add whimsy and balance the solidity of the wood. It serves well as a side table. Ours is a display table--my great-grandmother's hand tatted doily allows the tiger maple pattern to show through and we have '50s era portraits of my parents on top. Visitors always comment on the rich color and pattern."

"We are so pleased with the stunning re-finishing job Lighthouse Woodworking has done on this dresser passed down to us. This piece was not usable as the finish was completely off the top. Ron went over and above what we expected. The skilled attention to detail and care is obvious."

"I contacted Lighthouse Woodworking when I found out my ideal dining room table existed only in a picture of something made in 1908. Ron took this picture and created a stunning Craftsman-style dining table for us that perfectly reflects our style and which also meets the practical needs of a modern family. The quality of his work and the attention to detail is amazing, and exceeded any expectations we had! What made this project so special was Ron's collaboration with us, which started during the design process and wood selection and continued throughout the entire build. The end result has become a beautiful, much-loved centerpiece in our house that we will treasure for a lifetime. I highly recommend Lighthouse Woodworking to anyone looking for a special custom piece for their home."

Trio of classic Windsor chairs

"Ron made four Windsor chairs to use around my kitchen table. It is rare for anyone to come into my kitchen without making a comment on how beautiful the chairs are. They are beautiful, however, the chairs are used every day so I wanted the chairs to be beautiful and comfortable. Somehow through the magic of design and craft, Ron managed to form each chair's contours to fit the human body. Presto, I got my wish."
