Custom, Hand-Built Furniture & Products
My name is Burke Seeberg. I’ve opened The Workbench with the goal of helping you build the foundation for lasting family memories. A kitchen table where your kids color. The side table where you lay your book before bed. The outdoor chairs where you share a perfect sunset. Creating your perfect piece of furniture is within reach. I can help.
I’m with you from start to delivery. We design the project together. Then, I use woodworking methods that have existed for hundreds of years – way, way before IKEA flattened entire dining room tables into boxes.
The building process and creating something together is my passion.
“I recently was in the market for a new home office desk. I had some ideas for the look and design but really wasn’t sure exactly what I was looking for. I contacted Burke from The Workbench to consult with me for my project. He not only provided ideas and options, he provided a really nice design specification sheet for my review. When it came time to starting the job, Burke and I visited a local lumber store to pick out just the right wood for the project.
I couldn’t be happier with the outcome as the desk is a now a focal point in my home office. If you need any wood work related projects done, I highly recommend Burke from The Workbench- they do fantastic work!”

“The quality and craftsmanship delivered with each of Burke’s pieces far surpasses anything I would be able to purchase from your standard furniture store.
We commissioned 3, 5′ tall cherry bookcases to fill a blank wall in our living room. They are stunning. Not only are they beautiful but they are so well made. They have survived multiple moves and in each room, in every apartment / house, they are definitely the showcase (or focal-point – not sure what word fits best here).
Each piece is crafted with such care and quality that you know you’ll have a piece that will last and can be handed down for generations to come.
Burke really listens to what you want, and then he delivers.

A renovation project at our home allowed us the opportunity to add additional storage in a hallway outside the renovated room. Rather than just slap a closet door in a wall opening, we decided to match an existing built-in cabinet at the opposite end of said hallway. The existing cabinet was original to the house and had a very worn and outdated finish on the door and drawer fronts.
We asked Burke if he could reface the doors and drawer fronts on the old cabinet and then build an entirely new cabinet to match. His work absolutely exceeded our expectations. The refacing made the old cabinet like new and the new cabinet EXACTLY matched the old. However, the new cabinet was actually built to a much higher quality than the original. Burke did all this faster than I expected and at a very reasonable cost.
With new finish, the cabinets match completely and look as if both are original to the house. Burke’s work helped finish off our renovation in spectacular fashion. I highly recommend Burke and The Workbench MKE.
