Since 2014, I have been designing and creating hand-made heirloom wood furniture and lighting in the greater Boston area. With a focus on design and uncompromising quality, I understand that creating great furniture requires time, patience, attention to detail and quality materials. These ingredients go into every piece I craft, so everything is original and built to stand the test of time.

One of a kind furniture maker




Jesse Shaw, the founder of JShaw Furniture Design, is a renowned wood craftsman and furniture designer. He graduated from the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, ME, where he was awarded a fellowship that enabled him to hone his woodworking and design skills under the tutelage of the master craftsmen who taught there. While continuing his studies in furniture design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, he furthered his education in Italy, training with notable craftsmen and designers in Milan. After receiving his MBA, Jesse became the lead furniture designer for Currey & Company in Atlanta, GA, where he had the opportunity to travel internationally, working with furniture factories worldwide. In 2016, he made guest appearances on the PBS television show, Rough Cut Woodworking with Tommy Mac. The Boston-based master craftsman has taught woodworking classes at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education (CCAE), the Eliot School of Applied and Fine Art in Jamaica Plain, and Tufts Museum School. His work has been displayed in numerous exhibits, galleries and museums, including the Wharton Esherick Museum, the SCAD Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection and the Fitchburg Museum. He has devoted his career to elevating wood craftsmanship and furniture design to a higher level of art, and to making museum-quality pieces available to everyone.
