When Center of the World Woodshop’s master woodworker, Terry Hanover, creates furniture, it’s a hands-on affair — from details such as hand-cut dovetails, leaded glass doors, inlays, and hand-carving, to hardwoods selected to showcase their natural beauty.

Since 1976, Terry has been creating custom Arts & Crafts furniture and cabinetry in his southwest Michigan shop, with the assistance of a
small group of craftsmen who share his love of woodworking and
commmitment to detail.

To preserve his hands–on philosophy, our shop has remained small, allowing Terry to give his personal attention to every piece.

Our showroom also showcases the work of several other fine furniture
makers, selected for their expertise in creating heirloom–quality pieces.

Select a piece from our showroom, or have Terry create an Arts & Crafts design just for you.

Center of the World also offers home accents created by independent artists and artisans.  Whether you’re searching for an Arts & Crafts vase, leaded glass lamp, hand-crafted tile, or original painting, we have something for you.

Journey to the Center of the World, where you’ll discover it’s still possible to find fine furniture and home accessories, handmade by artisans in the United States.

Center of the World Woodshop Showroom is located in the heart of Harbor Country, in southwest Michigan.  Take a tour of our showroom to view a sampling of our selections.

Our commitment to the environment: Domestic hardwoods have been endorsed by the USDA as a preferred green building material, due to responsible harvesting methods practiced by the American hardwood industry, as well as minimal transportation requirements (compared to imported woods).  Our furniture is made to last for generations from sustainably harvested, local wood.  In every stage of our business, we strive to minimize our impact upon the environment.
