Shaker Furniture Gallery
at the North Woods Chair Shop

...notions about investment quality furniture...

We have been making hand-made furniture since 1980 and we now have experience with our pieces appreciating in value over time. Compare this to mass-produced furniture you buy in a store which is worth almost nothing the day you bring it home. Which is it that you will sell ten years later at a yard sale for a couple of hundred dollars? It won't be a piece that's made by the NWCS to fit your home and lifestyle - ours is furniture for a lifetime.

All of our pieces are signed, dated and registered to the original owner.
