Open Studio & Spring Sale, May 27 – 28

Here’s a chance for substantial savings on my studio furniture. These are floor models, samples and furniture I have used in shows. Everything his new – just built a year or two ago. You can also inquire about new custom furniture in the styles and designs you like. The studio is open from 10 am to 5 pm, and there is plenty of parking. Search for Hayama Cabinetmakers on Google to open a handy map to my studio and shop in South Newfane.

A pair of cantilevered chairs and side table in black walnut

The two chairs and table are made from American black walnut, and the group makes a nice accent to any room. The chair runners slide easily on carpet. The side table features knock-down joinery and can be completely disassembled. Even so, it is very strong and stable. The chair seat cushions are upholstered in leather. Price for the group: $1,200, (a 35% savings)
