“During a major remodel we had to remove a beautiful mature walnut tree from our property. We knew we wanted to have a memory of the tree, so we had it cut into slabs during the removal process. Through a stroke of good fortune, a friend recommended we speak to Tristan Newbon about how to cure and finish the wood. We couldn’t have found a more responsive soul than Tristan. He listened to our needs and desires and was detailed and meticulous in all aspects of the curing, drying, and preparing the slab. When it came time to design the piece for our home, he again respected our ideas and shone as a talented craftsman and artisan. The table is truly the most beautiful furniture in our old house and we are happy to have some part of the old tree live on. It was truly a delight to work with him and I recommend Tristan to anyone who is looking for similar craftsmanship.”

“I’ve had the special privilege of working directly with Tristan Newbon for almost 20 years. He gets it, always able to grasp the essence of our needs and truly stuns with finely crafted results. Our latest project is of special note, spanning 4 years. From the initial concept drawings, to researching, procuring and curing the sumptuous one-of-a-kind walnut slabs; to staying focused and patient, drawing many refinements which enabled my true desires and needs to come forth. Then the work started with Tristan dedicating over 1500 hours of intense crafting; deconstructing and reconstructing the massive walnut slabs – turning them into my personalized executive office set. Wow! We worked remotely almost the entire time. Tristan was always there keeping me up to date on the status and progress. I always looked forward to his e-photos, not revealing the true scope and beauty of the set until completion. I look forward to working with Tristan again on future projects!”
