Erickson Woodworking is the partnership of Robert, his wife, Liese Greensfelder and their son, Tor Erickson.

Our goal is to create furniture that is personal, well conceived and a delight to the body and the imagination. We have a small shop with production limited to 75 pieces a year

Custom Rocking Chairs and Desk Chairs

The handmade desk chair is another important design form that we specialize in. Given that many people spend most of the day at a desk, we pay particular attention to the ergonomics and custom fitting of this chair.

In our studio not only do we make custom rockers and desk chairs but we work with the chair as a piece of functional sculpture. While respecting the human body, these chairs are visual explorations of shape, texture and materials.
