Rhodes Hinman Craft + Design is a custom furniture design and fabrication studio in Austin, Texas. Our goal is to create pieces that not only serve a function, but become vibrant and contributing members of a home. Furniture is something many people use everyday, but often goes unnoticed. We focus on the details of a piece, be it little bits of accent color or carved texture, as a way to bring joy into those small moments of daily use and interaction.

It is a special and much appreciated opportunity to be able to create objects that will not just cycle in and out with the seasons, but will last long enough to be passed down to future generations.

It is important that high quality work comes from high quality materials. We use all FSC certified domestic woods, natural oil finishes, and natural dyes and paints in our furniture. These choices reflect our commitment not only to the quality of the work, but also to sustaining the quality of life in our environment.

We are equally happy to work directly with private clients, designers, or architects. Whether you are ordering a small production run, or commissioning a piece for the first time, we can meet you where you are. We look forward to hearing your ideas and adding a little bit of our own character and quality to your environment.

Rhodes began his woodworking career as an apprentice in a custom cabinet shop and assisting several accomplished furniture makers in Austin. As his interest in fine furniture making grew, he decided to return to school at The Evergreen State College, where he earned a degree in Furniture Design and Woodworking. He has spent time as an Artist in Residence at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, attended workshops at The Penland School of Craft, and is continuously seeking out new ways to improve his skills as a designer and maker. Rhodes Hinman Craft + Design is a confluence of practical problem solving skills learned in production environments, conceptual foundations honed in academia, and the pure love of making and working with wood encouraged by his time at workshops and residencies. He strongly believes in embracing joy and play in life and his work, and that these are essential ingredients in creating furniture that makes a positive contribution to the environment in which it exists.
