Charles Bender’s portfolio

We’ll be adding more photos in the near future.

Charles Bender and Company, Cabinet and Chair Makers is a company dedicated to making period furniture in exacting detail. Although much of our work can be seen in museums and private antique collections, we can copy or design a piece specifically for your home. We use the highest quality figured woods available and use period correct construction methods when applicable. For those who want the look while maintaining a modern lifestyle, our period furniture adaptations can be created to suit your every need.
