    I was looking for a bunkbed set for my twin girls but, was unable to find anything that suited their personalities. They are typical girly girls and everything that my wife and I found was built more for boys. Then we found Sam's WorkShop online and the owner, Chip Weaver designed and built a set that fit our girls to a tee. Although the set was not exactly cheap it was built with quality craftsmanship and what we like most about it is that it's one of a kind. No other kids will have one exactly like it. We are so glad that we found Sam's, we have recommended them to our friends and will continue to do so. Very satisfied customers in Mt. Vernon, WA. Natalie & Howard Wilson, Mt. vernon, WA.

    Chip Weaver, owner and Master Craftsman at Sam's WorkShop designed and built a bedframe for my 5 year old daughter. He did such a great job that I have commissioned him to design and build a sleighbed for my wife and I. I would definately reccommend Sam's WorkShop.

    "My wife had always wanted a slieghbed, but could not find one in the stores that she really liked. In 2006 Chip designed and built one out of Oak for me and I gave it to her for Christmas, she absolutely loves it! We are expecting our first child in September and I have asked Chip to build us a cradle. We will definately go to Sam's for all of our wooden furniture in the future". Robert Emerson Seattle, WA.

    "We wanted a set of bunkbeds for our twin boys, but didn't think that anything we found in the typical manufactured furniture stores was sturdy enough or would fit "our space". Chip, the owner of Sam's WorkShop, helped us design a set that not only fit our space, but, has held up for almost 6 years now. Since then we have gone back to Sam's for two coffee tables and a replica Hoosier" Kari & Ralph Baxter Snohomish, WA.
