While it may be quicker to buy ready-made products, there are many reasons why you should consider purchasing solid wood furniture.
Unique Handmade Furniture Style
All our pieces will be designed and produced for you and will reflect your distinct style. With our solid wood furniture, you will have anything you want.
Choose your material from Wood type to finish and combine different styles or create your own piece. Our skilled solid wood furniture makers can turn your dream piece into reality. If you have the spark of an idea in your mind, we can help it grow into a finished item.
Superior Quality & Detail
At 1BENMU we will make sure to build a product that will last. We are always using only the best high-grade wood materials and finishes, which means that the end product won’t have a limited life-span. You will also have the chance to choose your own materials, such as slabs.
Another aspect of our custom furniture is our focus on detail. The traditional Japanese wood joinery technique we use, such as in this Asian inspired tea table, will give you a unique look.
We will use the wood species that you prefer most and provide you with the kind of finishes to create the visual appeal you intend to achieve.
At 1BENMU, we have the experience, expertise, and resources to source high-quality materials. Check also the top 6 Reasons to Choose Solid Wood Furniture for your bedroom according to CelebMix.
Environmentally Friendly Reclaimed Wood
Wood is a valuable material for us and we always use it with respect. At 1BENMU we make sure that the woodworking process is environmentally friendly.
Our first priority is to track the source of materials. We always monitor the wastes in order to reduce it at a minimum level. We are also a proud member of the Ontario Wood and use tree species that were harvested from sustainably managed forests in Ontario. Ontario Wood is the natural choice for high quality, local and sustainable wood products.
1BENMU uses more than 75% of tree species that are indigenous to or are commercially grown in Ontario and are harvested from sustainably managed forests in Ontario.
All processes associated with manufacturing take place in facilities located in Ontario.
Before the designing session, it is good to take influence from similar pieces. Start by researching current trends, designs and ideas.
Check design websites and product magazines and always take note of what you like and dislike about the current designs so you can adapt and change them. You can also save some photos and show them to us, in order to make the process more efficient.
Another important part is the measurement of your space. Prior to coming to our store, you may want to take measurements of any existing furniture in the room.
You should also measure the size of the room including measure floor area, ceiling height and doorway width. All these will help us to keep a sense of scale and balance of the room. Check here how to Design Custom Furniture and get some more inside advice by the publishers of Fine Woodworking.
If you want to start your career as a furniture maker or designer you are more than welcome to also check our available positions.

Furniture Design Steps
The first step in our furniture design begins with an appointment. Book your online appointment with one of our Qualified Designers and get started. We serve customers from Scarborough, Toronto, North York and GTA.
During our first in-store meeting in our design studio in Toronto, our designer will determine the type of furniture you want to design based on your space, needs and requirements.
We can also determine what exactly you want to accomplish and list the challenges, concerns and problems that you want to solve. By knowing your personal style, we will determine easily the best way to express it.
That step is really important, as we will have the chance to review your vision, brainstorm for new ideas. With our experience working with many projects, we can give you suggestions on the best way to bring your vision into life.
The more specific you are, the better the end product you’ll have.
You will also have the opportunity to choose the best wood materials and find the perfect slab for your dream custom furniture.
Finally, designing handmade pieces can be time-consuming, especially when you need a whole walk-in closet room, so we may need to schedule multiple meetings. Understanding your timeline lets you enjoy every step of the process of creating your own unique pieces.
After the design is ready, our furniture makers will proceed to manufacture the piece in our workshop in Scarborough.
Furniture Designing Tools
In order to turn the concept into reality, we will create scale drawings and sketches to help communicate your vision more effectively. We use traditional and modern ways to generate sample designs, such as card models, sketches and computer-aided design (CAD).
Some additional software packages to prepare a detailed final design are Rhino, AutoCAD, Solidworks and Photoshop.
We always keep informed about design trends and developments. We also research, plan and test various furniture design styles in order to provide you with the best solution.

Alice ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – …This artistic coffee table is incredibly beautiful! We definitely will work more in future time.
Will my custom furniture be expensive?
Not necessarily, although quality custom work is rarely about finding the lowest possible price.
There is no just one price, as we will draw and produce something just for you. In order to give you an accurate quote, we offer you a FREE consultation session with one of our solid wood furniture makers in Toronto.
Many customers assume that custom made furniture is out of their price range. Custom furniture may be costlier than commercial pieces.
1BENMU – An investment into furniture is an investment that pays back in terms of high-quality, longevity and style.
The reason is our high standards, effort, craftsmanship and excellent outcomes that go into creating bespoke pieces. Check our Reviews for more information and learn how we manage to offer high quality yet reasonably priced pieces.
During the design consultation, our furniture designers will help you spend your budget more wisely.
Not every aspect of your design needs to cost a lot of money. Our designer can help you pick and choose where to invest in quality and where you can skimp a bit in order to work with your budget.
Before we start working on your project we will ALWAYS create a budget first and give you the final price, even if you are ordering a wooden charcuterie tray. This way you will have the control and will avoid planning mistakes and missed opportunities as the project continues.
Our Values & Craftsmanship
At 1BENMU we believe that custom furniture craftsmanship means more than just a process of making, way of doing, or even a reason for striving for the craft piece.
For us, it is a Spirit of Being, it is how and why we choose to stand in front of and to push forward the generation of our time.
The value of craftsmanship goes beyond that of making objects.
It is the continuum of the object and its user, seeing beyond the initial stage, remembering the nature of growth in human beings as well as in craft objects.
When craftsmanship is being seen as the spirit of being, it resonates within us a reminder that we are part of a larger story of humanity, that our efforts are communal and our spirit is long-lasting.
One of the greatest contributing factors to good craftsmanship is the craftsman’s desire to do good work, the gradual accumulation of knowledge and skills and the ever-stronger conviction that one was meant to do this one particular thing in one’s life, which requires complete dedication and self-motivation.
If craftsmanship can be seen beyond the scope of craft making, perhaps then it could escape the fate of amateurism and once again be respected and appreciated as one of our modern spirit of being.
It has been demonstrated that craftsmanship can help us reveal our identity, it reminds us of the importance of human efforts, also shapes our own values.
Final Thought on Custom Furniture
Instead of searching endlessly for that perfect piece, why not design your own custom furniture. The custom pieces you choose to fill your rooms is undoubtedly an expression of your unique sense of style.

Creating your own custom furniture isn’t something that most people would consider. By having a custom piece designed just for you will allow you to express your style and have the functionality you are looking for.
Saying that we totally understand that buying quality custom furniture is a big decision. Not only is it a financial investment, but it is also a major investment of time.
