GABRIEL KEITH SUTTON
My furniture work is largely by commission, although I do occasionally have spec pieces available for sale locally or in my online store. If you are interested in custom furniture or cabinetry please contact me directly by email.
20TH ANNIVERSARY CALENDAR PROJECT
To pay tribute to my favorite piece of furniture, the coffee table, I'll be making a different table each month. Each table will be inspired by a different design movement. I chose the coffee tables because it was the first thing I made when I was just getting started. A coffee table is often the center of everyday life and I want this project to reflect that.
This table is made from maple and birch and features a handsawn veneer checkerboard pattern. Dimensions: 30" x 30' x 16".
50% of the sale of this table will go to The Palace Diner to support their staff impacted by coronavirus.
Commissioned for good friends in Omaha, Nebraska this table is made of walnut, cherry and bubinga. Dimensions: 30" x 18".

Creating custom furniture results in an endless supply of scrap material. In my time between jobs I utilize these materials for creative small goods that enhance the quality of everyday life. Check out my shop for products available regularly and for special edition items.
I am a self-taught furniture maker and designer from a long line of craftsmen. My great grandfather was a gunsmith and furniture maker in Southern Ohio, my grandfather was the head of Industrial Technology at Kent State University, and my father was a cabinetmaker. I began building furniture in a small shop 19 years ago. My passion is to create unique furniture that lasts for generations, and embodies how we live and who we are. My early work and some of my current inspiration comes from the clean lines and elegant proportions of antique Danish furniture and the simple beauty of Japanese architecture. As of late, I am finding inspiration in some of my early drawings combined with a pattern I may have seen, or a historic building close to where I live in Biddeford, Maine.
