About JM Craftworks
» Boxes, cabinets, and shelving to provide safe environments for collectibles and help keep special items close at hand. Perfect for small places needing to combine style & storage. Please contact us about a custom order - we would be happy to help with an original design.
» We are a husband and wife team with a small crafts shop specializing in a limited number of high-quality items fabricated of fine hardwoods. All of our items are designed and constructed from start to finish entirely by us. Everything we make is slightly different in size and shape and no two are the same. Each is an original.
» We both have a Bachelors of Fine Arts and a Masters of Fine Arts in visual arts. We have worked full-time for museums and galleries for over 15 years as well as managing an art services business for over six years. Our educational background and training has given us a thorough grounding in essential technical skills and enables us to approach our crafts work with the perspective of artists.
» We are fans of American styles such as Shaker, Arts & Crafts, Mission, and Prairie, and one of our main goals is to bring the values of these past styles into contemporary settings.
» We do not use any endangered or exotic woods in our work. We are a green shop and use recycled and reclaimed materials wherever possible; making second use of materials that would otherwise go to waste. Our primary source of woods are cutoffs from a local large commercial wood shop. The woods they don't want, which are usually sections with unusual color or interesting patterns in the grain, are exactly what we want for our small handmade items. We’ve also been able to save wood from trees scheduled to be taken out by the city. And we use earth-friendly materials for painting and finishing, but with no compromises on durability.
» Whether you’re searching for a keepsake box, a jewelry cabinet, valet, or a special handcrafted item that will turn your house or apartment into a home, we can help. We have work that is in stock and can be shipped immediately, or you can request a custom order for a one-of-a-kind piece that is exclusively yours.
