Custom Built Wood Furniture by Hawkins
As an entrepreneur who has found success working with his hands in all of his endeavors, W.T. Hawkins turned his attention to custom built wood furniture more than 20 years ago. The former auto mechanic discovered his passion when mourning the death of his father inspired him to take wood and tool in hand and build a table. Everyone who saw the table asked if they could buy it – and Hawkins Furniture Company was born.
Hawkins embodies the true spirit of Texas, and this spirit is emulated in each of his original designs. A perfectionist, Hawkins touches every piece. He swears that altering a table by a mere quarter of an inch can make or break how it is perceived and the level of comfort it provides.
Behind every Hawkins creation there is a story
A table top may be made from the recovered hardwood floors of a dance hall or bowling alley, and its legs may come from an old country farmhouse, or a demolished Galveston warehouse. Choose an original Hawkins design from the showroom, or commission your own masterpiece with the craftsman. Feel free to provide your own piece of wood or browse through Hawkins’ private stash of strikingly beautiful woods reflecting the strong, rich Texas grains of pecan, mesquite, longleaf pine, hickory, or black walnut. Hawkins also enjoys collaborating with customers to refinish and restore family heirlooms and estate sale finds.
