Custom wood furniture or real wood furniture is it for you? I was speaking with a couple the other day about an accent table. They had been to several places, including searching the internet, to no avail. They felt custom was out of reach within their options. Because of space size, color and style were important but the price was still a concern. With a few simple steps, we walked through the process of custom wood furniture and designed a piece that was over their budget, yet didn’t break the bank. When we first meet with a client, we like to know about the project, space, and yes, the budget. This way we can help clients achieve success in their custom wood furniture quest.

Design wood furniture
The budget is always a top priority and it is important to compare apples to apples. A simple table built out of pressboard or particle board will cost a lot less than a real wood table. One of the interesting facts is that real wood furniture can be restored but the particle board or pressboard furniture cannot. Once damaged, it is essentially ruined.
Meet your furniture maker
So, if you think custom wood furniture is a fit for you, here are a couple of tips. If you have a hard time finding a local furniture maker, check on the internet. If you can visit their wood shop or studio. This will give you a chance to see the workmanship first hand. It also gives you an opportunity to develop a working relationship. Ask questions, such as, “How long have you been in business?” Also, ask, What is the process of ordering a custom furniture piece?” I enjoy client visiting my custom furniture studio in Nashville, TN, but sadly, I never meet most of my clients as they live in other parts of the country and across the globe. At Littlebranch, we are about quality natural wood furniture and working relationships. Our style is rustic to modern and contemporary. We also use ethically-sourced live edge wood slabs that are native to the USA.
