We are often asked where the name "alchemist" comes from.
In its basic meaning, alchemy is a transformation. In the ancient practice of alchemy, alchemists were trying to turn base metals into gold, and that is the idea behind what we do. we turn a raw material into something beautiful and precious. Alchemists were also searching for immortality, through creating the "elixir of life". That is what we are doing through our woodworking, we are creating timeless, heirloom pieces that can be passed down for generations.
We are located in Boyne City, MI, and are a family team who combine our unique skills to create our one-of-a-kind pieces. Using beautiful woods chosen for color and grain, we cut, join, carve, assemble and finish each piece by hand to guarantee the highest quality craftsmanship at every stage.
