Comfortable and Practical
Custom seating can change your outlook. Each piece is handcrafted to suit you. Zack stands behind every piece he makes. Get on the waiting list for your next chair.
The Artisan Approach
Working on the farm and in shop rarely allows Zack the chance to sit down, so seating holds a very special place in his heart. Zack Shaffer looks at chair making more as an art than a craft. And that craftsmanship is in every chair.
"a chair has to fit the person whereas other pieces of furniture has standard sizes that fits everyone," -- Zack.
"Everyone that builds furniture has some kind of catchy slogan. Me, I just wanna build beautiful furniture for good folks." -Zack
Zack firmly believes the best part of any project is working with what God has created. "The first thing people comment on is how beautiful the wood is. So i figure why not compliment the wood instead of try to shape it into something its not meant to be."

"Zack Schaffer is a great carpenter and craftsmen. He is super easy to communicate with by text, email, and phone. I live in NYC and I needed a custom kitchen cabinet to hold pots and pans, and a few drawers for our silverware, and junk (scissors, tape, rubber bands, etc.). I reached out to Zack, and gave him the sketch he requested. He gave me a quote (which was very reasonable) and he responded with a to-scale diagram. Within a couple months he shipped it to me and I couldn't be happier. I had lots of questions and suggestions all along the way (type of wood, types of edges, finish, handles, type of drawer slides, etc,, and he responded helpfully and patiently to all my requests, even steering me in the right direction when his experience trumped my desires. If you need super talented, super nice custom furniture made of wood, you can't go wrong with Zack. I can honestly say that the cabinet he made is one of the nicest things I own!"
We Have Happy Customers
"Zack Schaffer is one of the most pleasant people to work with. He is a talented craftsman with elegant woodworking skills. He gave me my choice of wood, worked quickly but carefully and thoroughly once the wood arrived, sent pictures of the work as it progressed, and shipped the rocker in a well constructed crate. this was truly one of the most pleasant purchases i've ever made and I now have an absolutely gorgeous rocking chair in my bedroom, making a dream of mine come true. I'm looking forward to future purchases. Thank you, Zack!"
"Masterpiece. Work-of-art. Timeless. Heirloom. These are the words that most aptly describe Zack Schaffer’s woodworking creations. I commissioned Zack to make a Maloof-style rocking chair as a “new mom” gift for my wife upon the birth of our first child. I was familiar with Zack’s work, and having seen many of his pieces before ordering the rocker I had high expectations for the project. Even with the highest expectations, I was absolutely blown away by the work-of-art that Zack created. The rocker is stunning. The finished piece puts on full display Zack’s impressive talents and craftsmanship. The joinery is strong, tight, and beautiful. The placement of lumber—which individual boards where used in the build and where they were placed—is thoughtful and artful. The finish is flawless. To say my wife was pleased with the chair would be the understatement of the century. Her exact words (and my wife is not one for hyperbole): “This is the best present I have ever received.” Working with Zack throughout the project was beyond pleasant, it was fun. Zack regularly touched base with texts and photos, so I never wondered about the status of the project or when the chair would be completed. I don’t know how we did it, but between the two of us we were able to keep the chair a secret from my wife until the big reveal. Great experience and many thanks to Zack, to whom I’m forever indebted from the amount of brownie points this gift has earned me."

"Zack crafted two amazing river top desks for my home office. I came to him with the idea for a large writing desk, along with a standing desk and he completely outdid himself. Not only are the desks versatile and functional, but the craftsmanship is second to none. His creativity and attention to detail make these two pieces stand out in our new home. If you are looking for furniture that will be passed down from generation to generation, Schaffer Furniture is the way to go. It was an all around great experience working with Zack and we look forward to working with him again!"

"I could go on for days about how happy I've been working with Zack. He made me the most gorgeous coffee table a few months ago and I'm already going back for repeat business!! Go here for ALL your furniture needs, SERIOUSLY!"
"Zack made ‘The Lingo’ for my husband and me in 2014, and it has been a member of the family ever since. We love the ‘The Lingo’. It allows us to display two key joys of our life: books and wine. We also love the look of the piece. ‘The Lingo’ appears to be a mid-century piece of furniture, yet Zack’s excellent craftsmanship has updated it in a way that it blends beautifully with our modern furniture. This guy is incredibly talented, and I’m sure you’ll love anything he can crank out!"
