The Carpenter Craftsman has been out of commission due to an arm injury since March 2023, and will not be making any new furniture until he has fully recuperated. The items you see were made during the 2020 Covid lockdown in North Carolina and are samples we use in our permanent home south of Nashville, Tennessee.
This veteran-owned business has been in existence since 1997. There is nary a single product or tool used that is from a foreign source. Every custom item is crafted to last generations, pegged and stained to perfection. Sure you could spend less, on a factory-made piece, but those made here give you bragging rights to owning a one-of-kind heirloom piece that can be passed on to other family members.
The Carpenter Craftsman, Chuck Bearden, was born in Nashville, TN and was the director of his company, The Tennessee Handyman, until 2015 when he began creating custom furniture using reclaimed wood from barns and historic buildings as The Carpenter Craftsman.
"Rose created a website for our Marine Corps League Detachment in Raleigh-Durham that put us on the map immediately via her swift SEO work; this allowed us to obtain new sponsors. "Ooo-rah," we thank her for putting that together in short order. We looked at her husband's site and knew she was the right person to hire!" Bruce G. Commandant, August 2021.
"The custom waterfall bar Chuck made for our living room matched our green lifestyle and the rest of our reclaimed wood decor. Thanks for doing an A+ job for us." Robert in Cary, April 2021
"I bought two side tables for our bedroom from their online shop and they were ready in three weeks and matched our headboard perfectly. The craftsmanship was far better than what we'd seen in retail shops." Thank you, Rose & Chuck, Anna in Apex, March 2021.
