My Name is Mark Sterner. I’m the owner of a small, one person shop located amongst the farms of rural Indiana. I’ve been working wood for over 20 years. I live, with my wife and daughter, in a house that was built in 1840 by one of the first settlers of this area. His last name was Couden. With his kind of spirit in mind, I established The Couden WoodWorks, Inc. in 1999.
My Philosophy: Produce heirloom quality custom furniture that integrates tasteful, aesthetic design with uncompromising functionality for the customer who appreciates historically inspired design and fine craftsmanship. All of my furniture is made using traditional joinery and construction techniques. My customers can expect their custom piece to last for generations.
