About Us

It all started with a handmade dining table for our home…

At Fisk Avenue, we believe that the best things are still made by hand. It was this belief that prompted the owner, Joel, to build his first piece of furniture... a farmhouse dining table. Since then, his table has become the centerpiece of his home, and has been where they have shared many special moments together as a family. Built to last longer than box stores, Joel saw how his family table became the stage for countless memories over the years.

Others loved the table too, and soon people starting ask us to build one for their family. Joel found his passion in both creating practical and long-lasting home goods for clients, but also bringing people together through building and designing. Today, Fisk Avenue Custom Furniture has become the go-to local stop for custom furniture and DIY workshops, focused on building community as well as furniture.

All tables are customizable, with different size, base, wood, stain, paint, and seating options.

The lumber used to create our standard lines and custom pieces is sourced from local, sustainably-grown American lumber. Each piece we use is hand-selected by our team from local mills for its quality and character. We are dedicated to creating the finest heirloom quality products for your family and your home, using the best possible materials. We also strive to use sustainable woodworking practices every step of the way, so you can feel confident in every product created in our shop!

We don't let any of our lumber go to waste. Join us in-store to browse our smaller inventory available for purchase, or sign up for a DIY workshop! We provide the venue, instruction, and materials to help you complete a project for your home; made by you, for you! From cutting boards to cribbage boards, or epoxy-resin crafts to even building your own dining table; our projects require no previous experience as we guide you from start to finish.

At Fisk Avenue, we are dedicated to providing quality, long-lasting custom furniture made from ethically-sourced materials.
