Functional beauty, built to last for generations...

Emkay Woodcrafting specializes in functional custom fine furniture, hand crafted from solid hardwoods and built using traditional techniques proven for generations.

Fine hardwoods are hand-selected for figure and appearance, then crafted with care and experience developed over a lifetime of woodworking. The natural beauty of the wood is emphasized using hand applied finishes. Each unique piece is designed with an artist’s eye, and individually built with pride to be appreciated for generations to come.

Whether a simple home accessory, or a major commissioned piece of formal heirloom-quality fine furniture or casework, we are looking forward to providing you with an item to give lasting satisfaction, to proudly use and display, and to enhance your home and lifestyle now and for generations to come.

All designs are by artist and craftsman Michael J. Keers, and inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement, Shaker, James Krenov, Modern and other clean, simple designs. Keers also works in his own 'artsy' Studio style, and offers fun Southwest, Santa Fe and rustic interpretations as well.

Preferred primary hardwoods include walnut, white oak, cherry, mahogany, and some of the more exotic tropical hardwoods for contrast. Alder, poplar and pine are used where appropriate to design and style, for secondary woods or in the rustic and Southwest pieces; Keers also enjoys recycling previously employed (reclaimed) wood, or 'wood with history' in the rustic and fun casual pieces.

Please note that all the pieces shown on this website are unique. We generally do not stock 'ready-made' pieces. The majority of work featured here was commissioned, designed and built for particular clients. Some pieces are built as 'speculative pieces' and may or may not be available for sale depending on prior sale or gallery placement. All pieces are offered to whet your imagination and interest, and to show the impeccable level of quality and the variety of designs and styles we are comfortable working in. We can replicate or customize any item seen on the website, or let us design and build your own individual piece suited to your needs, decor and personal tastes. Shipping can be arranged on all pieces. Prices where given are representative and will vary depending on design, material and finish chosen.

Please take the time to look over this site, and then feel free to contact us to discuss your project.
