Martin's Custom Slabworks



Hi i'm MArtin…

I make tables of all kinds—dining, coffee, consoles, end tables—as well as benches, mantles, counters… anything that utilizes the natural form or “live” edge of the tree. I source most of my wood locally from trees that need to be cut, though I’ve been known to travel as far as Texas and upstate New York.

While I’ve been doing woodworking off and on for decades, my current work is strongly influenced by George Nakashima, one of the leading innovators of 20th century furniture design whose work showcases the natural form and character of the wood. Consequently, no two pieces are ever alike. Unless requested, all pieces are given a hand rubbed oil or wax finish.

I can take credit cards in person or can receive payments through PayPal.

I will deliver within a 250 mile radius of Dayton, OH, for a reasonable fee.
For longer distances please contact me for a specific price. White Glove service is available!

You are invited to come see what I’m up to out in my studio!
