Welcome to The Eaton County Joinery! Esoteric Fidelity since 2007
The Eaton County Joinery, located in Charlotte, Michigan, is your source for exclusive bespoke furniture built the old way. Every piece is custom-designed and built to the customer's specifications. I prepare every board with hand planes, cut every dovetail joint and stick every molding entirely by hand and using vintage hand tools, most of which are well over 100 years old. Truly skillful woodworking requires a strong connection with your material. It is impossible to get this connection when using power tools; therefore no electronic machinery is allowed in my shop.
I will never repeat a piece exactly, so any piece you buy from me will be one of a kind.
Here you will find pictures of my past commissions as well as images of pending designs. If you see something you like, contact me for a quote! I think you'll find my prices quite reasonable, given the high quality of the materials I use and the workmanship that goes into every single piece of wood I shape.
If you'd like to see my shop and how I work, feel free to call me and schedule a time for a visit. I look forward to working with you.
