About Us

Phil Rasmussen is the Mountain Woodworker. Following in the footsteps of a family of artists and artisans, Phil specializes in the design and construction of custom Shaker and Mission style furniture. He adds a unique twist to these styles by incorporating various types of wood into each piece he makes.

Furniture is not his only specialty. He also crafts custom corbels for area homes. These corbels complement the clean and simplistic design of the Shaker and Mission periods. Other home accent pieces include bowls, unique display/storage cases and shelving, and serving trays.

For a more personal touch, Phil also turns pens and personal use items from some of the world's most exotic woods and acrylics. These beautiful pieces provide a unique flair to everyday life.

In addition to the family influence on his craft, Phil has traveled extensively throughout the world. He grew up in the Air Force and later joined the military himself. He retired from the US Army with 30 years of combined service and later from the North Carolina Community College System, where among other responsibilities, he had taught photography, computer science, and law enforcement.
