Our Story

FAMILY

Love of Craftsmanship

Things made by hand are rare in our world. They represent a love of craftsmanship inspired by a tradition of artistry handed down over generations. Hello! I'm David Zupec, owner and craftsman. I've always had a passion for woodworking since I was a kid. I love the process of designing, milling and sculpting raw wood into a beautiful piece of furniture for families and friends to gather around.

My dad, a retired engineer and master craftsman has been my inspiration and biggest supporter along the way. As a young child, I spent many hours at his side, watching and learning as he worked on projects in his shop. He's built many beautiful pieces of furniture for my mom and their homes throughout the years. Today we both work together, each with a different skill set that complements each other.

ABOUT

Furniture and Family

Great Lakes Farmhouse was born out of a passion for two of my greatest loves: furniture and family. My passion is creating unique and family-friendly furniture that's made for gathering. Places where their best memories are made.

In 2015, what started as a desire to design and build a farmhouse table for my own home grew into the opportunity to do the same for family and friends. One by one, they trusted me to build them a table. Over time I began to trust myself.

Then in early 2018 my dad and I officially launched Great Lakes Farmhouse. What started as a modest custom table operation in our shop in Hartland, Michigan and sold locally, grew into a collection of heirloom quality, luxury farmhouse tables ordered directly through our website and delivered to homes across America.

We build unique, heirloom quality, custom farmhouse tables the old school way—handcrafted. Using the finest premium hardwoods along with the best finishes and craftsmanship, our small family owned operation enables us to provide nothing less than exceptional craftsmanship, quality, and service throughout our small business.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Quality That Endures

We make every one of our custom farmhouse tables with a focus on quality and attention to detail. All our unique styles are handmade with American hardwoods that contain saw marks, knots, and cracks. We celebrate these beautiful imperfections! This is what gives our pieces their beautiful, rustic character.

Every cut, every detail represents a passion and a love to create something one of a kind. Using the highest quality hardwoods along with the best finishes and craftsmanship, our farmhouse tables get more beautiful with age and use.

TRADITION

Around the Table

Born and raised Catholic, God and family has always been the most important in our home. Evenings were spent around the dining table eating and coming together as a family to share, to learn, to grow, and give thanks.

That is why we believe our tables are more than just a piece of furniture, it's the heart of the home. When we build a custom table, our goal isn't just to provide a beautiful piece of furniture for a house. Our hope is that if you have a Great Lakes Farmhouse table in your home, it serves as a reminder to slow down and spend quality time with family and friends. The table represents coming together and making memories. This is what inspires us everyday to build these pieces in our shop.

We hope Great Lakes Farmhouse can be part of your family's story.
