“When I received my jewelry box for Christmas it literally took my breathe away. It is the most beautiful gift I have ever been given. The design, the function, the woodgrain and color, and the craftsmanship all put together make it stand out as the loveliest piece in my room. I didn’t know what I was getting for Christmas and when I told one of my friends what my husband got me, she said ‘You got that beautiful jewelry box I saw on Facebook? I thought some really lucky woman in Florida or somewhere was getting the most beautiful jewelry box I’d ever seen.’ It really is that amazing. My husband did really well with this purchase and it will be cherished for a long time to come.”

“Not a single ounce of trust was misplaced.  Doug succeeded in reading our minds! We provided him pictures of another piece and he successfully matched it’s tonal pallet. His beautiful creation has found her new home. Thank you!!”


“Doug was very easy to work with. I provided him a picture and then he tweaked it a little to make it his own! Kept me updated throughout the process! My mom shows her quilt ladder to everyone that comes over!”

“We are very satisfied with the benches Doug made for our dining room table. They are very high quality and after 2 years of daily use by our 6 kids, still look brand new. I know they will last for years to come. Doug communicated with us through the building process to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him, and hope to be repeat customers in the future!”

“The project came in on time, and exceeded expectations. I’m sitting at the bar next to my wife as I review the stool underneath me. Fantastic. Deborah’s chair is two inches taller than mine and she sits comfortably at the bar and I can look into her beautiful eyes. Something an off the shelf bar stool would not allow. I’m a big boy and Doug went out of his way to reinforce the joints, the support for the leather and they are strong, beautiful and comfortable. We will be commissioning more projects in the future. Did I mention the packing? Bullet proof. Got here well labeled and safe. First class all the way. I would recommend Doug without reservation.”

“Working with Doug McPherson was an absolute pleasure. From start to finnish he communicated every step of the way. Delivery was perfect…finished table was magnificent….Highly recommend this wonderful artist…his visions in wood are truly magical..”

Arlene S.

“First, I bought a McPherson cutting board for my wife. She refuses to use it as a cutting board, “It is too beautiful to mar with a knife.” It sits in the middle of the dining room table, where it serves as a trivet.
The recipe box that came next, was a bit short. Doug made a replacement that is perfect. It graces the kitchen and is used daily. Our plumber left a hole in the bathroom wall when he repaired the shower. Doug made a custom wall cabinet that covers the hole. It is very well crafted and, like the recipe box, a masterpiece of joinery. Best of all, the mounting screws are invisible.Artistic pieces all. Each is a work of beauty and superb craftsmanship, unlike anything from a factory.”

“Several years ago, I asked Doug if he could make an all-purpose dining room table for my family of six. I wanted it to be rustic and made of reclaimed wood, which was new territory for him. He recycled wood from a fallen 100 year-old barn, and made us a thing of beauty that has become the hub of our home. Many a meal has been eaten at this 4’x8′ table, as well as homework, art projects, and even an occasional ping pong game. It is beautiful, unique, and extremely functional. We get compliments on it all the time. Thanks, Doug!”

“This was my first custom project. I interviewed by email 6 different wood furniture makers. It was immediately apparent to me that Doug was my choice. His communication and follow-up (we used text & email) was first-rate. He sent me progress photos all along the way. I gave 4 stars on value as that is subjective. I LOVE my new zebrawood and walnut entry console table. I would use Doug again, and would recommend people interview him and talk about their project.”

Randy S.

“Love our custom made hall table.  Never ordered from Doug before, so we were nervous. We specified the width and color. He communicated with messages and pictures on the progress of the table. It is so beautiful! And Doug had the table hand delivered to us in N J.”

“From start to finish, the process was smooth and effortless. There was clear communication throughout the project and the end product was exactly what I wanted. Can’t ask for better.”
