CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A family furniture business in Campbellsville that was destroyed by fire in 2010 is rebuilding with reproduction Shaker and midcentury modern lines, as well as custom work.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Eugene McMahan & Son Furniture Co. has just four full-time workers today, including McMahan and son Patrick McMahan. But the company has kept afloat thanks to a reputation for quality and a willingness to change with the times.
Every piece is hand-crafted from solid Kentucky cherry and walnut using traditional joinery.
About half their work is custom, and they don't charge extra for it or require a deposit.
Eugene McMahan is now 73 but has no plans to retire. Patrick McMahan wants the company to be around in case his 5-year-old son wants to take over someday.
