Peter Naramore

Custom Handcrafted Furniture by

"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."

“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.”

“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!"
