In addition to our popular oak pews we offer a wide variety of hardwoods. No substitute materials or veneers are used in our pews.

    Hardwood Construction

    Florida Millworks and Church Furniture believes nothing equals the beauty, durability, and timelessness of solid wood, and no wood is better than the beautiful, rich grained oak which we carefully select and process through our own dry kilns and modern woodworking machinery. Our rich grained oak wood ultimately are a very popular choice but we offer the complete gamut of available beautiful hardwoods. Only solid wood is used in all our pew models here at Florida Millworks and Church Furniture.

    Superior High-Density Cushion Material

    Quality to the core. We have chosen to only use the highest quality seating material for our upholstered seating and kneelers. Our cushions and upholstery stand the test of time and do not dissolve and disintegrate like the cheap foreign foams being used by discount knockoffs. Using the best materials is key to our success as much as our proprietary fabrication methods. Our special cushioning is incorporated during the fabrication process with our skilled techniques honed over 40 years of experience.
