Our Process

1. Initial Consultation:
You can initiate the process of creating your next piece of custom furniture with us by completing the custom furniture intake form located here, emailing richard@hofferwoodworking.com or call/text 717-268-9399.


2. Initial Design Proposal:
Based on the information provided, we will create a preliminary design and based of the size of the piece and wood species selection create an initial CAD drawing and cost range estimate for your piece. We will then meet with you to walk through the design, size, and options for your review and feedback.


3. Refinement and Project Finalization (Including Total Cost):
After reviewing the preliminary design and incorporating any of your feedback we will further refine the design and finalize things such as finish and any other finer points around joinery selection, use of bowtie inlays, etc. From there we will provide the finalized quote. A minimum of 65% down is required to reserve your spot in our backlog. Please note that the down payment is non-refundable. The remaining cost is due at completion prior to delivery/pickup. At the end of this step, finalized CAD drawings, and an invoice are provided to the client. A down payment of at least 65% is provided to us, and both groups have a fully signed copy of our custom furniture contract.


4. Creation and Progress Updates:
As the building process begins, we will provide you updates throughout the process and partner with you when it comes to things like board selection for table tops to ensure your piece comes out exactly the way you want.


5. Delivery:
Prior to delivery, the remainder of payment is due, plus delivery/shipping costs. We deliver to Pennsylvania, Delaware, District of Columbia, Eastern Ohio, New Jersey, New York, or Western Virginia. You can also come pickup your piece at our shop once complete located in Shermans Dale, PA. For other locations in the US, we ship via freight.
