Our Story


James Becker built his first piece of furniture in high school shop class in Canton, Kansas over 35 years ago. Later while working as a machinist in a tool and die factory he built custom furniture out of his basement.

In 1987, James and his young family moved to Pennsylvania to accept a position building solid wood furniture for a small company. With four children to help in the shop almost every day, woodworking quickly became a family business as he taught them the skill. 

Today James works on projects himself and his wife Martha helps run the business. Their small shop is surrounded by beautiful fields and mountains in Shippensburg, PA.  Becker goods are designed around the natural beauty and strength of solid wood. Just as each tree is unique, so is each handcrafted piece.
