 “I build primarily period reproduction pieces and custom designs. I am a huge history buff so period furniture is and always has been my first love. I am drawn to it by the beautiful wood coupled with the craftsmanship of hand cut dovetails and mortise and tenon joinery. Expect to find both in my period reproductions. The same craftsmanship is found in my custom furniture. Finishes on all furniture is hand applied and rubbed.”

About Me

The Holstrom

Furniture Beginnings

The shop was started sometime around 1900 by my Great Grandfather. He had passed on before I arrived on Earth. His tool chest now rests in my shop and I connect with him when I use his tools on a daily basis.
Some of my fondest memories of childhood are standing in my Grandfathers small shop while he labored diligently on a chair leg or perhaps holding the end of a board for my father. The smell of the wood stove, blended with the odors of oak and pine shavings, are forever locked in my memory. Oh, I can’t forget the wisps of smoke from my grandfather’s pipe…

“We have two armoires, two trestle tables, four bookcases. We found Ron to be personable, thoughtful and communicative. Best wishes to those who live with his craftsmanship.”

“I am lucky to be one of Ron’s customers for many years.  Ron has a vast knowledge of architectural style and his craftsmanship is exceptional, his detail exquisite.  Ron’s knowledge, experience, and his respect for the quality design helped to inspire me to transform our home from mundane to unique.  Throughout all of our projects, Ron has been very helpful and accommodating. 

If you have a love for period design, call Ron”

“We don’t value craftsmanship anymore! All we value is ruthless efficiency, and I say we deny our own humanity that way! Without appreciation for grace and beauty, there’s no pleasure in creating things and no pleasure in having them! Our lives are made drearier, rather than richer! How can a person take pride in his work when skill and care are considered luxuries! We’re not machines! We have a human need for craftsmanship!”

Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes
