Ries Robb
Maker of Fine Mission Furniture est. 2005
 

 


Welcome to Ries Robb
Furniture Maker

   Coming from a family of woodworkers it was only natural that some of that passion was passed down to me. My grandfather built wooden toys in his spare time and my father built hydroplane-racing boats and while in college had a small business making water skis. 
   Several years ago, a friend showed me some Mission style furniture and I have been hooked on it ever since.  I built a frame for wedding gift and the groom told me I should be doing this for a living. So I decided to open this business and have been building Mission furniture since 2005.

   I focus on reproductions or modified Arts & Crafts furniture.  I hand select all the wood for each of my projects, using quarter sawn white oak. After staining the wood, the finishing process consists of six coats of hand rubbed tung-oil varnish followed by three coats of wax.

   I can work from photographs or actual dimensions. If a custom piece is requested or size modifications are required, this is usually handled by phone.
