Hi, I’m Chris Padilla, I run North Summit Studio and I like making furniture for people. 

I started this journey to create furniture that I could build a home around, it has slowly grown into doing the same for others.

I’m a lifetime maker and creator, now building handmade furniture out of my small home shop on Long Island.

The right piece of furniture becomes a part of your family that will follow you through generations.  A table where meals are eaten and stories are told; a chair for drinking coffee on lazy Sunday mornings. 

I believe in simplicity, honesty and utility.  The goal of North Summit Studio is to design and build furniture for people who share these same values.  I focus on simply designed furniture with time tested traditional joinery and construction methods. 

Thanks for stopping by my small corner of the internet.
