Custom Furniture Pieces

Welcome to J. Holtz Furniture. I specialize in building custom furniture and built-in cabinetry, including the occasional kitchen. I also build doors and architectural millwork, as well as prototype for other companies. I build each order one at a time, using hand selected hardwoods, locally sourced whenever possible. I finish each piece with a sensual, hand rubbed finish.

I draw influence from a variety of woodworking traditions, including Shaker, Scandinavian, Mid Century Modern, and Asian. All of these cultures share a respect for craft and simplicity, as do I.
