At Hawk Ridge Furniture (tradename for furnituremaker Paul R. Donio), my work balances the traditional values of early American design with contemporary style and function. I have admired early New England furniture and architecture for nearly a quarter of a century. The simplicity of design, attention to balance and proportion, choice of materials, and unquestionable integrity of construction has always struck a chord in my heart. It is these values that I celebrate in every piece of furniture made here at Hawk Ridge.

Each piece is individually crafted using traditional joinery that has withstood the test of time. Dovetail, mortise-and-tenon, and pegged joinery add strength and simplicity. I work with solid hardwoods of local and exotic origin, and apply hand-rubbed oil finishes to bring out each wood's natural beauty.

Hawk Ridge Furniture provides discriminating design and craftsmanship for clients throughout New England and beyond. Whether your preference is Shaker or Buddhist, Queen Anne or Frank Lloyd Wright, I will work with you to create a piece that expresses your style using the appropriate design, materials, and construction. Your piece will last for generations.

From rural vernacular to formal period furniture, I strive to create a balance between the unique character of the selected wood and the elements of design. The following images are just a sampling of the range of pieces that are available—please visit my website for additional information. I also invite you to call or email me regarding your furniture needs. The Hawk Ridge Furniture workshop is located next to my home in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Visitors welcomed—by appointment please.
