Floating Stone Woodworks
Furniture Store in New Bedford, MA
Floating Stone Woodworks is a custom furniture shop in New Bedford Massachusetts specializing in handcrafted tables, bookcases, consoles, case pieces and benches. Every piece of furniture is built and finished individually. The joints are precision cut and hand suited. The finish is hand rubbed oil and varnish or french polished shellac. Each piece is signed and dated. I use highly figured hardwoods sourced from FSC certified dealers who buy only from managed, renewable forests - quarter-sawn white oak, cherry, maple and walnut.

We enjoy this piece of history and seeing how construction techniques have changed as mass production became more important than quality. We consult historians regarding finishing techniques so as not to devalue the piece. In some cases, we get drawings and plans of the originals to replace a missing desk front or back splash.
