Our Story

Unique designs, premium hardwoods, artisan craftsmanship and attention to detail - we handcraft custom tables that are made to last for a lifetime of memories.


Father & son.

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 beautiful custom pieces of furniture.

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.

Great Lakes Farmhouse.

In 2015, what started as a desire to design and build a farm 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 shop focused on selling locally in Michigan, grew into a collection of heirloom quality, luxury farm tables ordered directly through our website and delivered to homes across America.


Handmade & heartfelt.

We build heirloom quality, custom farm tables the old school way—handcrafted. Using the finest premium hardwoods along with the best finishes and craftsmanship, our small family owned business enables us to provide nothing less than exceptional craftsmanship, quality, and service because we understand that your table is not just another piece of furniture, it is the centerpiece for your home.

From picking out the first board to spraying the last lacquer topcoat, our custom tables are truly made by hand and heart, one piece at a time.


Quality & detail.

We make each and every one of our custom farm tables with a focus on high quality and attention to detail. All our unique plank style tables are handmade from locally sourced hardwoods with or without the rustic distressed features. We celebrate the cracks, the knots, and all the beautiful imperfections.

Every cut, every detail represents a passion and a love to create something one of a kind. We use the finest hardwoods and techniques, ensuring a beautiful, lasting piece of furniture that you'll cherish for many years to come.



Faith & family.

Born and raised Catholic, Jesus 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 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 will inspire your family to return to the table often. Invite people over. Share your hearts. Laugh and love. 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 a part of your family's story.
