Custom, Fine Furniture 

Handmade by Jon Peirce

All my furniture is made by hand using the finest solid woods available. No plywood, pressboard or any other compromises! I use traditional tools, techniques and materials to create beautiful, graceful pieces that will last for centuries. My passion is making fine furniture and my objective is to make things that people will treasure and pass down to future generations.

My furniture is custom made to order, so I can alter dimensions and details of anything I've done previously, or create completely new pieces to meet your exact requirements.

ABOUT

Industrious Revolution is a one-man furnituremaking shop that aspires to recreate the quality, beauty and attention to detail of furniture made in the glory days of American furnituremaking when everything was hand crafted.

I make all my furniture myself, in my Union Village, Rhode Island workshop.  Using exceptional native hardwood lumber, locally made brasses, and traditional materials, tools and techniques, I build my furniture to last for centuries and be used and enjoyed for generations.

Thanks for your interest in fine hand crafted furniture.  I hope you see something you like!

Miguel Gomez-Ibanez, President Emeritus of the North Bennet Street School in Boston judged the show and provided the following critique:

"A meticulously detailed and crafted desk giving a traditional form a modestly new look through the successful choices of figured wood, veneers and inlay banding."

MAHOGANY COIN CABINET

The English have a tradition of storing and displaying their coin and medal collections in custom made Honduras mahogany cabinets.  This particular cabinet was designed with 15 coin trays, with 2", 1.75", 1.5", 1.25" and 1" coin pockets, as well as one tray with a 8" x 11" recess for displaying paper currency.  The fronts of the trays are clad with tiger maple, and tiger maple was also used for the door and rear cabinet panels.  There is a glass observation window at the top of the cabinet which allows the contents of the top tray to be displayed when the lid of the cabinet is flipped open.  Each tray is interchangeable, enabling any tray to be positioned in any slot in the cabinet.  When the front cabinet doors are locked, the lid is also locked down.  When the lid is open, the front doors can be locked to prevent any of the trays from being removed.  Knobs, hinges and barrel lock are all solid brass.  Front door lock and key are brass plated steel.  Finished with several coats of orange shellac.

 

The design of this cabinet can easily be altered to accommodate more trays as well as displaying other small, flat collectibles such as medals, pins, documents, paper currency, stamps, etc.

Trays are 12.5" wide, 8.5" deep and 7/16" thick

TIGER MAPLE FARM TABLE WITH FOLDING LEGS

The client wanted a farm table that could be used for entertaining, but folded and stored when not in use.  The challenge here was to make the design rigid enough to support hundreds of pounds of load and yet enable the legs to fold up into the apron of the table with no unsightly struts or braces that reduced the legroom underneath the table.   At 8' in length and 34" in width, this is a large table that would easily seat 8-10 guests.  Another challenge with a table this size is accommodating the natural movement of wood with variations in humidity.  This was accomplished by using free-floating breadboard ends on the table top, and attaching the top to the apron/leg assembly with sliding cleats that enable the top to expand and contract laterally without warping, splitting or tearing out fasteners.  The exceptionally figured tiger maple is finished with linseed oil, amber shellac and wiping varnish.  The legs are fitted with heavy-duty locking pivots with toggle bolts and threaded brass inserts for locking the legs into both the fully retracted and fully extended positions.
