How I began this business

Posted by Frank Bray on

My name is Frank Bray.


Since making my first rocking chair in 2004, I've crafted hundreds of chairs, and I've learned to listen closely to the needs of my customers.


All of my chairs are based off one built in 1910, which I repaired for a friend. It was a wedding present for her parents, but languished in a basement with a broken runner for years. I made two new runners and matched the finish. That Mission Rocker is still in use today and in the same family too!



My workshop is located in Eastern Ontario, Canada; this is a largely rural area of farmlands and small villages. I love to go to my workshop in the morning, turn on some classic old music and work away at something I love to do. It certainly helps the day go fast and most days are not long enough.
