Woodworker, Owner

Suzanne Walton hails from the North of England where she studied Furniture Restoration and Conservation at Manchester College of Arts and Technology. She was drawn to the Hudson valley due to its similarity with the English countryside and for the last 15 years has been creating high-end custom cabinetry there. When she's not working you'll find her rowing, skiing, biking or sailing on the Hudson River with her wife Elaine and their 'doglets' Oliver and Dot.

The Rowan Tree (Sorbus Aucuparia)

Our logo spells ROWAN using an Old Irish alphabet called "Ogham". The Rowan tree was sacred to the Celts, and was associated with strength, protection and success. It was honored for it's balance of beauty and hardiness and the Druids considered it a very magical tree used for wands, rods, and spells.
