In our latest finished work, two wall-to-wall cabinets create some classy storage with Carrara marble counters. Seven drawers and seven doors flank the carved mantel in this beautiful home in center city Philadelphia. The inset doors feature a raised panel with historic style and brass knobs. The paint is semi-gloss waterborne lacquer tinted to match Benjamin Moore Mascarpone, a creamy white. This project was a collaboration with Shophouse Design.
The left side is intended for bar usage and the right side to store children’s items. No matter what they chose to use it for, it adds style to this interior!
Below are a few progress shots of this piece as it was made in the woodshop as well as the original sketch, which underwent some changes before being built to adjust the size and number of doors and drawers.
In between the custom jobs that have long been our bread and butter (where many of the details are dictated by client desires), it is always gratifying to mix in a piece that comes straight out of the craftsman’s imagination and the quirks of the materials at hand.
When a nearby barn underwent some refurbishing, Adam was able to acquire some reclaimed chestnut beam sections. One of these hand hewn antique beams has been utilized as a leg in this unique and asymmetrical desk. The other end features a waterfall edge fabricated from walnut.
The desk top slab has been carved by nature- the tunnels of insects long gone from the kiln dried wood are fascinating and of course, one of a kind. In the center there is a single drawer. The top will be protected with a piece of glass with polished edges. This piece would also make a great hall table or console.

We have two beautiful space saving Queen size Murphy Beds on display. One is Walnut, the other is Ash, both constructed from sustainably harvested Pennsylvania lumber, with crown molding and stunning paneled fronts and sides, using state of the art piston hardware (10 year warranty on hardware). The pulls are crafted of matching wood. Interiors and headboards are painted Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray.

Mattress not included- but will fit any Queen mattress less than 12″ thick. The dimensions on these beds are 94″ tall x 67″ wide x 17 1/4″ deep. When opened they extend 84″ from the wall.

Amazingly lively bookmatched European Walnut drawer fronts are framed by blackened Pennsylvania Maple in this pair of new original Springhouse designed dressers. These dressers are even more stunning in person.

Dimensions 47″ w x 34 1/2″ h x 21″ d (Larger than they appear).
The first piece of furniture to move into our new showroom in the old one room schoolhouse is this lovely Campaign Dresser.
The piece is constructed of Solid Pennsylvania Maple and sports seven roomy drawers on soft & self closing concealed drawer slides.
Finished in a neutral warm grey waterborne lacquer, waxed, and all decked out in polished nickel Campaign hardware with recessed pulls, this beauty would add style and substance to your room. Campaign dressers also make classy and sturdy changing tables for a nursery.
This mixed hardwood four poster bed has been in a state of partial completion, hanging around the shop for a long time. It was promised to a good friend who will be taking it home today. This queen sized bed is a modern version of the poster bed, with four sided posts that taper at the bottom, and tear drop shaped bolt covers. The woods used are spalted maple, red oak, hickory, and sycamore, all grown in Pennsylvania. There is a center support and thick solid wood slats to support the mattress.
Also in the shop are another bed and a nighstand for Rissay Ltd of Philadelphia, and some bathroom cabinets under construction, destined for New Jersey.
These two Drop Leaf Harvest Tables were commissioned in Cherry wood. They are 74” long and 39” wide with the leaves up for dining (a single table will seat six). With the leaves down, each table is a slender 18” wide’- and would make a nice low-profile hallway table.
The tables are built on the vase shaped arch base that coordinates with our arch bench. If you need seating for a crowd on occasion, the two tables placed end to end creates comfortable seating for up to 12 people. The tables can be finished to suit your decor: they can be painted, antiqued, clear coated, or stained to match your palette. As with everything from the Springhouse Woodshop, these were built by hand and constructed to last through a lifetime of daily use.
