Making furniture is about using nature’s rawest materials and creating something that is genuine and authentic. It is about taking elements of history, which could only be worn by time, and turning them into timeless pieces. I borrow inspiration from furniture that has persevered through centuries, and yet can still occupy a valued place in almost any home. I use elements of the past that were once held in the hands of true Texas craftsman and turn them into one of a kind custom furniture. These dilapidated barns and houses, historic relics of the past, were once created by the hearts and hands of Texas pioneers, and are now reclaimed to serve for centuries more in our homes.
My family and I live in Maypearl, Texas on the future Auburn Hill Farms. Building furniture has been a part of me for around 20 years. I have often teased that I was born about 150 years too late, and my life passions reflect this truth. Dreams of a self-sustained farm have consumed me for years, though it will be a reality sooner or later. Disassembling old houses or barns allows me to slip into the past lives of those who once inhabited them. I am enthralled with their history, and it is beyond fulfilling to give new life to these structures. I deeply appreciate my beautiful wife and girls for tolerating my obsessions with old houses and barns and the time that they consume.
