Located in the Rail Arts District of Avondale Estates (a neighborhood just east of Decatur), The Jack Ellis Company is an exceptional custom design woodworking business, founded in 2013 by Michael Gokey and Whitney Wolf. The pair specialize in handcrafted one-of-a-kind furniture & accessories and their time-honored pieces represent the ultimate form of "re-using, recycling, reclaiming and repurposing salvaged wood and other materials." To note, their company name is in honor of their sons, Jack and Ellis.
The Mr. and I stopped by last week to pay Whitney (who happens to be our neighbor) and Michael an impromptu visit..... We caught them working on a custom double-sink vanity. Check out our photos above & below + images of their completed work.
"Our work is a tribute to the American craftsman. We promise sustainability, quality craftsmanship, good and simple design, uniqueness, and 100% made in America through and through."
-- Michael Gokey and Whitney Wolf
Various types of wood lay ready to be re-designed within the shop's exterior grounds..... The raised MARTA train line sits at the edge of the property.
