TCW was founded in 1989 by the Thompson’s, who are second and third generation millworkers. The TCW shop specializes in Custom Furniture, Custom Cabinetry, Commercial work, Millwork and Finishing. After we stopped making tables for Saltwoods, we started TCW Farm Tables and Furniture. Now we sell our gorgeous furniture on our own without a middle man. Now we are able to build furniture to our higher quality standards. We live and breathe wood here at TCW, every product and project we complete resembles our pure love of woodworking. We want our customers to love our work as much as we do so we strive for excellence in all aspects of production of any custom order.

Our Crew: Alongside Brian and Bruce, there are 6 other guys who work in the shop. These men are the foundation of the shop. They are the ones that sand, assemble and finish all products. Everyone may wear a different hat but everyone has the same goal to make the customers happy.
Maggie: Our loyal shop dog. She is a gorgeous yellow-lab beagle who hasn't missed a day of work in 9 years. She loves her job, exploring the TCW shop, roaming the grounds, napping in the office and scoring everyone's left-overs! Being a shop dog is a rough life.
Our Custom Woodshop:
TCW handcrafts every product by hand in Winchester, Ma. From table legs to cabinet doors it is made by us and no one else. This allows us to control the highest quality standards of our products. Having the ability to make everything allows for an amazing range of customization. If you see a product that is not on our site simply email photos of what you are looking for and we will get back to you with ideas and pricing. Because we make all of our own parts our lead times are much shorter than most. Why wait six to twelve weeks to get it somewhere else when you can have it hand made in America by local craftsman in a fraction of the time.
