About + Contact
My name is Cory Warner. I'm a cabinet-maker and furniture designer.
I work alone out of a small (320 square foot) shop located in Lehi, Utah, which is about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City where I was born.
For the past five years, I have been pursuing furniture construction and design as a serious career endeavor. My background began in architectural/mechanical drafting and design, as well as working as a machinist/welder, finish carpenter, motorcycle mechanic and various other forms of manual labor.
At this point in time, my furniture output is fairly minimal as I have just moved shop spaces (again), and am working to get everything set up. The body of work I am pursuing is primarily centered around the use of hand tools and period methodology; however I plan to start using machines again in the near future to help expedite certain milling/dimensioning processes.
While I am not taking on commission work currently, if you do have any small projects in mind, please feel free to contact me and I will see what I can do. I do a lot of furniture/cabinetry repair as well as upholstery and sharpening, so if you are interested in any of these services, let's get in touch.
***This year I will be traveling frequently for the purpose of researching historical woodworking and industry, as well as writing some essays, so I will be out of town sporadically until August or September (2018). The rest of my free time I am typically at my bench.***
