“Eric has been delightful to work with in meeting my custom furniture needs.  I have known him now for over 10 years and he is fearless in taking on any project.  He has meticulously designed and built a number of beautiful, creative items for my home and office:  foyer table, four-piece bedroom set and three-piece office furniture (conference table, credenza/bookcase and desk).  All built to my personal preference for type of wood, style, space and function.  I highly recommend contacting Eric Sutton for your custom woodworking needs”.        Myrna Mitchell

As soon as I saw and sat in the Sutton 3-legged saddle, I knew I had to have one. Given Eric Sutton’s passion for excellence and innovation, I knew that this stool would be outstanding. Now it has a place of honor in our recreation room and it travels with me to drum circles, camp sites, outdoor concerts, and wherever I need to take a comfortable seat with me.    Dr. Jim Gardiner  (←About)



“After seeing some of Eric’s wood projects he was working on, I knew he was the one I needed to build my new kitchen cabinet doors and new drawers.  I wanted to incorporate some rusted steel panels into the doors just didn’t really know how beautiful they were going to turn out until he had them up. Eric did a wonderful job. He added some unique touches to them that made my kitchen one of a kind. I would recommend Eric for any wood project you might have in mind”.                           Kim Kaschmitter 


Patricia's nightstand“Eric uses wood to create furniture that is art. I own a chest purchased from “Behind the Times Furniture” and the wood is used to bring color and texture into a useful piece of furniture. The chest is unique with exquisite little hand-made hinges and a texturing process on the sides and doors that makes the natural color of the wood just Pop!  It is useful and beautiful.  I would love to have a whole house of furniture made by Eric.  His work is museum quality and will last much longer than my lifetime”.      Patricia Ball




“Long ago in a very different time, Eric Sutton came along to help with my dream of owning a restaurant.  Eric handcrafted each dining table in Sage Creek Grille.  Eric also built the booths with just the right curve for comfort and put the final etching on each for texture and the Western look!  He also built the bar and the wine back bar and each piece created was as unique as the next.  When the next restaurant was being created, Eric was there to create the bar and benches and added the finest finishes that after 15 years they still appear today as the day they arrived.

In addition, Eric designed two stereo and television stands which were created specifically for the equipment.  His attention to detail is comforting and his precision to detail is appreciated.

I am grateful that our paths crossed and I will forever be grateful for his craftmanship and his passion to excel at his trade”.
