Bio

I am Ron Foley owner and craftsman of Foley Woodworks. I have been married to the love of my life Theresa for 36 wonderful years. I have two children Jennifer and Jeremiah and one energetic 4 year old grandson. After a career in the coal mining industry and building long bows and recurves for 25 years, I am now focusing my time and energy building Maloof inspired rocking chairs and heirloom furniture. My wood of choice is Texas grown mesquite which is an excellent wood for building exquisite furniture. I personally choose each piece of wood from the finest available for color and grain match and then hand craft it into an heirloom piece of furniture. I make each piece by hand one at a time to ensure the highest quality. I focus on every detail of the building process for quality and beauty and upon completion of the building process each piece is hand rubbed with an oil finish that brings out the natural beauty of the finest wood. My chairs are an extremely comfortable work of art. Each piece of furniture will be enjoyed for many generations.
