My name is Pete Michelinie, and I build furniture for a living.  It is my goal to create pieces which will be cherished, admired, and passed down for years beyond my own existence. This is why I hold high standards in my execution and attention to detail.

I work primarily on commission in South Pomfret, Vermont.  My work is sometimes for clients close to home and sometimes across the country.  Shipping a piece of furniture is easy, building it is what takes time.  I prefer to work on commission, designing pieces together with the client. Every so often I work on speculation, creating my own designs and ideas for galleries and shows.

My current shop rate is $35/hr, plus materials and delivery.  This rate covers my life cost right now, and if I ever have kids it’s going up.  To get an idea of how long it takes me to build a piece of furniture you can visit my personal website and find the time it took me to build each piece under the title of the piece.  I pride myself in efficiency.  In 2008 I graduated from the renowned furniture making program at The North Bennet Street School.  Where some students struggle to complete their three required projects I finished with twelve.
