Handmade Wooden Furniture

Bill Peberdy has been producing attractive hand-crafted furniture and accessories at his Corinth, Vermont workshop since 1989. Many of the pieces created are made using reclaimed antique lumber, old doors, architectural moldings, and cut nails. Those materials are combined with white pine lumber cut by a local band-saw mill. This allows for a better use of the materials, and reduces the amount of wood that might go to waste. The combination of these elements produces exceptional looking cabinets that are well-built to last.
Bill produces a variety of handsome cabinets (including kitchens) as well as cupboards, nightstands, hand-carved mirror frames, and many other custom items. The finished products are all unique items that will serve a practical function anywhere in the home or office workspace.
Early on I was inspired by simple, rural vernacular and Shaker furniture. Over time, I found that the bright colors and unusual trim details in Scandinavian and Eastern European country furniture blended well with the reclaimed lumber and miscellaneous salvaged architectural details I enjoy incorporating into my work.
The inspiration for the various carved crests on my mirrors evolved from crests found on early New England stone grave markers.
My furniture can be found at the artisan shops listed below as well as online at Etsy. I am also very happy to discuss custom work projects you may have in mind.
