When you sit down on one of our swings, gliders, or rockers, you are sitting on the combined efforts of generations of skill and and structural design. All coming together so you can rest easy and enjoy the outdoors for years to come.
Our family has a tradition of building for four generations. My wife and I have three children two sons, a daughter and eight grandchildren. My father and I built custom homes and cabinets for many years. Later our two sons joined the company as my father retired. Five years ago my sons moved on to their own business and I began to move away from the home and cabinet business to outdoor cypress furniture. Our family has a deep love for the Lord. Any enjoyment you may receive from our product or any commendation for the things we build, we owe all thanks to Him. He has given us the ability may He receive the praise.
Today the shop is a busy place with two employees besides myself and at times other part time help. Every day is a good day to dream of the next project to create. Our shop is equipped with some of the latest equipment. Great care is given to safety and a quality work environment. We build swings in a variety of lengths and designs, with decorative backs and fold down cup holders. We also build Adirondack rockers, and chairs, garden benches, porch rockers, ottomans, tables and swing frames. Some of the latest projects are cypress and old pine farm tables, benches to match the farm tables, trellises, and carpenter bee traps.
We strive to create quality furniture that will endure and be a joy to use. Although cypress is the primary wood we use today, we also use other woods such as, Mahogany, Pine, Poplar, and Red Oak. Although wood grows naturally and is renewable it is of great concern to carefully conserve materials, always protecting the integrity of the product. Wood shavings and saw dust are sometime used as animal bedding.
Located conveniently between Jackson and Hattiesburg Mississippi in rural Magee, close to Taylorsville and Mendenhall we are available to many Mississippians who care about enjoying the outdoors with quality furniture built to stand the test of time.
