What previous customers have said about Doxa Shoppe
Dr. Raymie and Natalie Porter, Huntington, IN. Bur oak ladder-back set with matching custom quarter-sawn Shaker-styled trestle table.
"We love our new quarter-sawn oak table and chairs! We have been using them for a year now, and they have generated many compliments from visitors to our home. The set is lovely, timeless, and built to last, with wonderful craftsmanship and attention to detail. The chairs are rock-solid, with hickory caned seats comfortable enough to sit in for long after-dinner conversations, and they are very light weight and move easily across our laminate wood flooring. We are very pleased with our investment.”
Kathy Fauth has been an avid antique collector and restorer for many years. She wanted a set of ladder-backs to match a 150-year-old scrub top kitchen table. The bottom of the table is butternut, and the top has two large removable oak planks, allowing you to "scrub" them after preparing food. The chairs were in northern MN grown red oak, stained with dark vintage maple dye and antiqued with shellac and dye.
"As an avid collector of antiques, I was instantly drawn to the Shaker-like ladder-back chairs. Paul carefully selects each section of the wood he uses so the unique grain will stand out on each chair. His attention to detail is apparent with each and every chair, making sure to get all the staining and sanding exactly to our specifications, even matching our antique table! And they are truly comfortable, as well as beautiful! This is an investment that will last for generations; you are purchasing an heirloom!"
