How I Built a Booming Custom Furniture Business Online
Posted On YouTube On December 31, 2020 By Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture [ChagrinValleyCustomFurniture.com]
This video shows you how Sheldon Myeroff turned his custom furniture making hobby into a profitable international custom furniture making company – all after retirement! Success came primarily from specialization with a focus on designing, building and selling custom-made river (epoxy) tables and rustic and modern custom made barn doors. A “river table” is two pieces of natural wood with a river of epoxy resin flowing down the middle. That’s become 80% of his furniture making business.
Sheldon started Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture from his home in 2013, but only became serious about growing the company after moving into a large high-end furniture manufacturing facility in 2017. CVCF has become a manufacturer of high quality, handcrafted, custom designed furniture, specializing in custom live edge epoxy tables and desks for sale online to individuals and businesses throughout the continental United States and Canada. Sheldon’s innovative ideas for furniture and his furniture business have become a hallmark of his success.
The audio for this video is comprised of extracts from Andy Levine’s Second Act Stories podcast on December 7, 2020, and titled “Goodbye Executive Recruiting…Hello Furniture Marking”. Andy interviewed Sheldon and CVCF VP of Operations Zach Schulte for this podcast – which Adam wrote and voiced. The full podcast is only 20 minutes long and we hope you’ll give it a listen. You can find it at https://www.secondactstories.org.
The Chagrin Valley process is different from other custom furniture makers (builders) because we only make true custom furniture. That means you don’t go online to order and pay at the start of the process. With CVCF, you are part of the custom furniture-making process every step of the way as together we create a completely new, one-of-a-kind piece of epoxy resin furniture, specific to your unique needs and desires. You give us your design idea, choose the epoxy color, wood slab, make tweaks in the design, all remotely through video technology. You can even have an emblem or your company logo machined into the wood and filled with epoxy, or embed items in the epoxy such as school and college logos, rocks, crystals, and other sentimental memorabilia.
We harvest our wood sustainably, often under the direction of the U.S. Forest Service. This ensures the long term health of the forest. We spend up to 2 years removing moisture from the logs before starting to work with them. This helps prevent warping and cracking of the wood. Our 6,000 sq. ft. workshop is fully equipped to handle all the challenges of making a beautiful epoxy resin river table, which includes a temperature controlled, clean spray room for a smoother, scratch-resistant coat. We also offer a large variety of metal and wood legs, plus you can design your own legs if you wish.
Our furnishings include custom epoxy resin river tables, epoxy resin river beds and headboards, epoxy resin desks, epoxy resin wall art, rustic to modern farmhouse tables, barn doors, benches, countertops, shelves and so much more. Prices for our conference tables are based on such factors as size, wood species, live edge/not live edge, conference table components, epoxy resin, engraved company names, engraved logos, embedded objects in epoxy resin rivers, etc. Prices for our solid wood and live edge conference tables start at about $4,500, average about $9,000, and top off at about $18,000. Prices for conference tables with epoxy resin rivers and epoxy-filled CNC logos or scenes will cost more.

Custom Farmhouse Dining Table Sold Locally [Industrial Base]
In this video, furniture maker Shel Myeroff, owner of Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture, talks with local customers Matt and Molly from Chagrin Falls, Ohio about the high quality made-to-order extendable farmhouse dining room table that CVCF custom built for them.
After an initial furniture design consultation, CVCF furniture builders set off to handcraft the rustic, yet modern and simple, farmhouse dining table from 100-year-old reclaimed oak wood beams, sustainably sourced from a barn in Southern Ohio.
The expert CVCF craftsmen at the Cleveland, Ohio workshop, completely customized the farmhouse dining table by adding a sturdy and durable industrial style metal (steel) base. This video shows all the attention to detail, including the welds and the two pullout inserts. The comfortable farmhouse dining table is 128 inches long when fully extended. Now Matt and Molly are living happily ever after with their new beautiful, and very unique, solid wood farmhouse dining table.
Listen to the couple talk about the exceptional customer service they received from CVCF. Find out how they got helpful design ideas from Shel for their custom table. Get their thoughts on the remarkable workmanship provided by CVCF craftspeople.
Because pine is inexpensive, it is frequently used by America artisans to make farmhouse tables (also know as a farm table or harvest table) tops. For the farmhouse table shown in this video, CVCF used more expensive oak barn beams because they will last for generations (they already lasted over 100 years in a barn) and because the cut beams display a more authentic style and absorb wood stains more effectively.
The country living inspired design style of the charming contemporary farmhouse dining table shown in this video, combines clean sleek lines with a cozy and warm farmhouse feel. This homey style of farmhouse furniture and décor certainly has not gone out of style.
Popular farmhouse style furniture made by CVCF typically incorporates versatile traditional aesthetics and industrial components (legs and bases) to convey a fresher character and a more relaxing appeal than rustic furniture and décor.
Truly custom farmhouse furniture and farmhouse dining tables are handcrafted by CVCF in any design style that the client wants. Exact sizes, dimensions, shapes and wood species are specified by the customers. CVCF ships custom built farmhouse tables to homes, restaurants and businesses in all 50 states.
