The name Abram Brown honors our artist's great-great-grandfather, Abram Jansen (Made Johnson upon arriving to America from Holland in 1907) and great-grandfather, Carl "Brownie" Brown. It's our invitation for years past to join the present.
Our artist, Abram Brown "Abe" Johnson, grew up helping his father on projects around the house and on the job. He is greatly influenced by years of working with different craftspeople and carpenters.
The works featured on this site are made with wood reclaimed and re-purposed. That means it lived a life serving one purpose and instead of becoming waste we give it another.
Character and appeal provided by years of genuine use, stress and wear decorate our products.
