American fine furniture & architectural millwork

Over 20 years experience in woodworking and fine furniture

Architectural Millwork

 Millwork is any kind of wood work produced in a mill like doors, moldings, windows, stair parts and more.

Woodturning & Carving

Woodturning is done with the traditional wood lathe with hand-held tools to cut a shape that is symmetrical around the axis of rotation.

Contemporary Furniture and custom designs.

I work closely with the client to design and build the piece envisioned.

Period Furniture

Reproduction and period furniture is built-to-order using the finest materials like South American Mahogany, Tiger Maple, & Walnut.  View some of my works over the past 20 years.

About Me

Matthew Blackburn | Shop Manager
Furniture & Cabinet Maker

Since high school I have dedicated my time to learning the craft of woodworking and perfecting the art of Reproduction Period Furniture.  I spent years as an apprentice and graduated from North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA.  These experiences enhanced my appreciation for craft traditions and developed an admiration for true craftsmanship. 

Thank you for visiting my personal website showcasing some of my works over the last 20 years.  In addition, you can see more of my period furniture, architectural millwork, and contemporary furniture at New Leaf Woodworking where I am the shop manager and lead creator.  Here, I am part of a talented team who’s vision is to inspire customers by continuing the tradition craftsmanship with beautiful and functional wood products created using time-honored techniques.  

This really is a small sample of my work.  Before setting out on my own I worked as an employee in several shops.  If you don’t see an example of the piece you are looking for, please contact me.  I have photos of pieces I built while I was an employee in almost every category of furniture.  Including beds, tables, dressers, chest of drawers, and cupboards.

It is my goal to build custom pieces that inspire and are enjoyed both in residential and commercial settings for years to come.  Made with the highest level of craftsmanship, using time-honored skills.

If interested in having a piece commissioned, you can contact me here and also at New Leaf Woodworking.
