“This is just a brief note to tell you how extremely pleased I am with the desk you made for me. It is stunningly beautiful and your craftsmanship is outstanding, as always. It looks so perfect in my office and I can’t help but admire this extraordinary piece you made. Thank you so much for your flawless attention to detail.”
William E. Simon Jr.

“I just wanted to write you a short note to thank you for the absolutely beautiful chairs. You have truly outdone yourself this time and we couldn’t be more delighted. The chairs are both presently in my office where they are going to stay.
William E. Simon Jr.

“There is no way to measure the excellence of your work; the thoughtfulness and care and love reflected in all you undertake is, indeed, without measure.”
Paul I. Fagan III

“The tables arrived in perfect condition. You built one hell of a crate! They are beautiful and add to our living room. Joan loves them and so do I. Thanks for your excellent craftsmanship!"
Pat Thomas

from “The Custom Furniture Source Book” by Kerry Pierce, Taunton Press 2001

“Many independent furniture makers handpick the material they use in their work, but not all go as deeply into that process as Peter Naramore. In addition to choosing his material, he also dries it and in some cases participates in the logging of the timber from which that material will be cut.

Working primarily in koa, a species found only in Hawaii, Naramore builds in a broad range of styles. Thirty years as a designer/craftsman have given him the confidence to move in and out of many stylistic traditions.”
