Thank you for the cherry rocker that I received today. The packaging for shipping that you put it in worked very well, and it arrived safely.
I appreciate the hard work and craftsmanship that you put into it very much.
It will be a treasure for years to come.

We asked Ed Steckmest to design and build a king size headboard and bed-side shelves. His work and our new components are very pleasing. Ed built us clean-lined, solid furniture made of light colored maple with warm cherry trim. He consulted us repeatedly during several steps of designing and constructing the pieces. The most impressive facet of this furniture creation was Ed's versatile installation of the finished product.The headboard and side shelves had to be joined intricately with our existing bedframe in our fairly tight bedroom space. Despite many sets of measurements and drawings, last minute tweaking still was necessary. Ed cleverly and speedily solved all the challenges. We sleep better having this wonderful headboard. Ed Steckmest's furniture design work has our unqualified recommendation. His business relationship with us also was very pleasant and efficient.

Our Cherry rocker arrived about an hour ago in perfect condition. I can't tell you how thrilled we are! It is such a work of art and we had to run our fingers over every inch. The curves, the lines, the seat..... and best of all, it is as comfortable as I had hoped. Thank you so much for your passion for perfection and wonderful craftmenship. We REALLY appreciate it. It is right at home here and will be loved and cared for.

I had been looking for a handcrafted rocking chair for years and it was indeed a pleasure meeting Ed at the Arts & Crafts Fair in Bellevue, WA, this past Summer and seeing and sitting on the rocking chairs he makes. My wife and I ordered one and when it was finished he packed and shipped it to us here in Florida- First - the construction and care of the shipping container he packed it in was second to done. The chair arrived perfectly safe and not a mark on it! Second- But oh the beauty of the wood along with Ed's workmanship and the absolute comfort of the chair is remarkable. I look forward to many hours of reading sitting in our new chair! However, that did not end there- Our home cutting board had warped and I asked Ed if he could make a new one for us out of cherry and maple, which he did. Again, its a work of art-
Thank you, Ed!

Yesterday my wife and I opened the box. We were both blown away. The chair is both beautiful and comfortable. The more I look at the chair, the more it reveals. The design is so clean, simple and subtle and very creative. The chair has great character and presence in it clean lines, a work of art. Thank you.

We LOVE our rocking chairs - my family has 4 rockers. They are the best - we used them to rock our kids to sleep and now, we use them to relax.

Thank You


My African Bubinga rocking chair is the best piece of furniture I own. It's beautifully crafted and extremely comfortable. I'm really glad I purchased it. I had thought about it for 2 years.

Good Morning Ed,
The rocker and ottoman arrived last night. They are beautiful! The height and fit are perfect. You are truly an artist!

Ed created a custom-made counter level kitchen table for us. The table needed to blend with a 1947 kitchen remodel and be practical for everyday use. His work is amazing as the table is more functional and elegant than we could have imagined.

Ed helped design and create a beautiful set of six mid-century modern dining chairs out of black walnut. The quality and construction is superb! Don't buy from a store. Have him create furniture that is a piece of art - you'll be glad you did.

My dining table and hutch are the focal point of our home! Original, innovative, classic and stunning! Will be an heirloom for years to come - all due to Ed and his

We purchased the butcher block island at an art fair last fall. A beautiful addition to our kitchen. Constantly admired by our guests.

I do not recall how many black walnut rolling pins we've purchased - probably 16? All of them have been given as hostess gifts, Birthday presents, or Christmas gifts. Everyone has been thrilled with these unique and useful souvenirs of our summer travels. Black walnut tree cut and crafted in Boise and sold as rolling pins at the Sun Valley Arts and crafts festival in July, 2011.

Ed- The two chairs you made for us are exactly what we wanted. Thank you and best of luck in your craft.

Ed, just wanted to write a short note to tell you that you did a great job on Heidi's rocking chair! We both are really impressed by it. It will be a family heirloom for sure. Thanks also for delivering it last weekend. We are sorry we didn't get a chance to talk to you. Thanks again for a great job!

We love our "Cashmere Rocker". We ordered it in Walnut and appreciate Ed's attention to detail. The wood is so smooth-it's like satin. The chair is not only comfortable to sit in - it also is a piece of art, beautiful to look at!!!
