When you purchase a fine quality design from
MacKenzie-Dow, you'll experience a surprisingly timeless blend of Old World
heritage and modern-day practicality. That's because they specialize in the
craftsmanship of superb quality 17th and 18th-century European-inspired solid
wood furnishings that resonate as well today as they did years ago. Made in the USA.
Situated in West Virginia, their local
craftsmen and women employ centuries-old woodworking and joinery techniques to
construct elegant creations that promise both enduring value and sophisticated
style. Working with Wild Black Cherry, a species native to America's abundant
Appalachian forests, we appreciate nature's blemishes that do not affect the
structural integrity of our product. In fact, small splits, knots and other
natural "defects" become attributes rather than flaws with the
addition of an unparalleled finish that begs to be touched, not to mention used
in a home full of life.
At MacKenzie-Dow, they do not make excuses
for the ingrained characteristics of solid Appalachian Black Cherry. In fact, they
celebrate them with an incomparably soft, hard-planed finish that lets nature
do all the talking.
Inspired by the sturdy furnishings common to

Collection offers designs for every room in the home. Casual, yet
sophisticated, these authentic, one-of-a-kind pieces employ age-old
cabinetmaking techniques such as planking, dovetailing, mortise and tenon, and
