The Colonial Woodwrights


Michael and Roberta Crowley are the owners and handcrafters of The Colonial Woodwrights, a small furniture and home décor company. A true “Mom & Pop” operation, the Crowleys craft each and every one of their pieces from start to finish. In 1984, they began building items with a strong early American influence, but over the years many styles have inspired the form and function of the furniture they design and craft.

To create these one-of-a-kind heirloom quality pieces, they employ traditional methods of joinery and use premium select or reclaimed materials. Pine and various hardwoods are purchased from certified mills; many of their items are crafted using re-purposed old barnwood, pallet, and crate wood and other “found” architectural elements to create diverse and unique collections for the home. Michael and Roberta use environmentally responsible paints, stains and top coats to create multi-layered finishes, giving the look of a well-loved antique. Alternatively, some of their other finishing techniques compliment many of today’s contemporary trends.

The Colonial Woodwrights’ workshop is located in Mariposa, CA, a small town in the Sierra Nevada foothills and a gateway to Yosemite National Park. They sell through their workshop, at a local gift store, Chocolate Soup, and at many art and craft shows throughout the Western United States.
