Inspired by my love of old coastal cottages and woodworking
I Build Unique Coastal Cottage Style Inspired furniture
Aloha. My name is Eric Moberg. I'm a master carpenter with over 40 years experience as a builder. I learned my craft working for master carpenters in New Jersey starting right out of college in 1972. I love coastal cottages and the furniture that gives them that next to the ocean feel. When I moved to Hawaii my wife and I found it difficult to find the this type of furniture in our local stores because there are few antique stores selling coastal inspired furniture. So I started to build what I wanted for my own home.
Everyone loved what I was making so I decided to go into the furniture building business and build this type of furniture for other people who love the look as much as my family and I do. Everything you see on this site is in my own home.
The Material- Recycled from old torn down houses As much as possible I use recycled wood from houses that have been torn down. The wood for the cabinet on this page was once a house in Manoa that was torn down. It may be 100 years or older, who knows.I made the doors from the picture window center sashes, cut down to door size. The frame, sides, back and top is wood from the siding and roof of the home. Once cut ,milled and joined it was sanded down to reveal the aged wood patina that can only be achieved with time. The hinges and knobs are reproductions of items found on furniture back in the day. We finished this piece with a special wax to seal the wood and enhance the patina of the wood and old paint.
I can build one for you, give me a call if you see something you like: Because of the type of wood and the look there are many man hours involved to produce each piece of furniture I make. Each piece is unique due to the sanding and finishing process. If I have it in stock I'll post photos or I can build a new piece for you.
Reasonable Cost: Each piece is a hand made creation that takes time to do right. However I've been doing this a long time and can get each piece done with less time, which saves you money. Because I'm making it in Hawaii there is no shipping charge from the mainland. Also, because you are buying directly from me with no middle man you are paying wholesale, well below what you would pay for a similar piece in a retail store .
