Meet the Makers
Mokuzai Furniture is just two people, husband and wife, Peyton and Tamara White.
We hand make each and every piece from start to finish. When you call, you speak directly with the owners. We handle every aspect of our business personally. We love how this keeps us directly in touch with our customers. We stay very busy but we love what we do and we hope you will be able to see that come through in each finished piece of furniture.
A little about Peyton in the Mokuzai Shop...
"I’m completely self-taught. From a very young age I found that if I wanted to learn something, I’d pick up a book. I would read everything there was to know about the subject. When I became interested in woodworking, I started reading. I collected a few tools, built some things and repeated. There is something to be said about formal training and degrees, but whatever you learn, until you make it and it looks good and feels good, it doesn’t really matter. I do what I like to do and what looks good to me and I 've put in the hours to get it right. I wasn’t taught a perfect dovetail but hundreds and hundreds of dovetails later, my hands have learned it."
