Higgins Fabrication is a custom manufacturer of handmade, high quality, steel and wood furniture.  As they like to say, “Built in a Workshop, Not a Factory. “The pieces I make are built from real lumber–No plywood, no veneers.  When you look at the end of one of my tables, you see endgrain and growth rings, because it’s a real board, cut out of a real tree,” they explain. Higgins Fabrication sells direct-to-consumer through their website, as well as other high-end furniture and craftsmen sites.
