How We Design and Build Custom Adirondack Rustic Furniture for Homes and Gardens

Steve Bowers descends from a long line of golf club makers, which is an unlikely genesis for a rustic furniture maker. The connection is craftsmanship and creativity. Steve’s father is a well-known golf club maker, and his grandfather is actually in the PGA Hall of Fame as a club maker and teaching innovator.

At some point a fork in the road presented itself and Steve was drawn in by the beating of those different drums, Congas… or was it Bongos? Anyway, down that different road he went… gone were the green plaid, Sansabelt slacks and Izod golf shirt and in their place was, blue stretch jeans, and rough hewn hiking boots.
