Handcrafted Furniture for the Journey of Life

As the holiday season picks up steam, we're excited to see more consumers choosing to shop small. There are endless choices when it comes to finding the perfect gift, yet craftsmen can offer one-of-a-kind gifts not found in the mall or on Amazon.


A small bench, hand-hewn from solid wood and carefully crafted with attention to every detail becomes more than a Christmas gift. It becomes an heirloom, cherished for years, and handed down from generation to generation. A handcrafted gift shows a thoughtfulness and purpose; not simply snapping up one of a thousand others shipped overseas by Ikea.


The Blue Ridge Bench is one of our most popular styles. This particular bench is handcrafted from quarter sawn white oak with walnut accents. The finish is a low-luster, organic flaxseed oil and beeswax. We use only earth-friendly finishes at Shopdog USA!

Leather pads added to the feet of this handy bench ensure your floors won't be scratched and provide just a hint of cushion.


An old-fashioned carpenter's bench serves as inspiration for this piece which is easily moved from room to room. A carpenter could carry his tools in one hand and tuck the bench under his arm passing through doorways with ease. 


Perfect in a closet for dressing or by the front door to perch upon while putting on or removing shoes, the Blue Ridge Bench quickly becomes a piece of furniture coveted not only for its functionality but for its beauty.


In an apartment or tiny home, small benches like these can be moved around as needed, serving as a convenient step stool in the kitchen or as extra seating in the living room. Place two side by side as a makeshift coffee table or end table. 

Custom sizes, different wood species, and finish colors are available. Email or call 828-407-0846 for details and price quotes.
