WELCOME to CAKirk
We love wood!
Thank you for visiting our site. We created our House of Kirk furniture and gifts for many years. We thought about retiring to just enjoy our flowers, but the inspiration struck, so here we are again. My wife of 66+ years and I are both in our 80's, and along with some family and friends, we are back with some great gifts. We have created a collection of Rustic and Inspirational pieces from the Blue Ridge wood. It is our hope that they will become heirlooms.
This all started as a hobby 50 years ago in Connecticut. As I looked at the waste slabs at a local sawmill, I saw that there was a lot of beauty and usefulness there. I took some home and from them created a cribbage board, bookends, magazine rack and a footstool. The natural round tree side bottoms and the beautiful knots in the wood fired up my imagination. That is how it started.
Then as all grew and came together, we moved to New Hampshire. My trusting wife and five children worked hard. We not only created our original pieces but started building furniture out of the beautiful white pine. We sold our furniture to folks directly. Our gifts went to many well known stores all over the country. We also had a village of craftspeople with great talent. We were so surely blessed.
We kept going on, but we had seen and fell in love with the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. It wasn't easy, but we made the move. There is much fine wood here, and it is a bit warmer, and our flowers grow better. So here we go, inspired to create more beautiful gifts for everyone.
