Design. Feel. Community.


Maker & Racer began in 2018 to give a local community access to handcrafted items. What started out as a hobby, turned into love for the craft. Love, turned to obsession over details and undeniable quality.

Maker & Racer is a small workshop that makes furniture from solid wood. Each client is gifted with the process, and an inside look of what it takes to make such beautifully crafted products.


With 100+ options to choose from- and more added every week- we make sure to use only the finest hand-picked materials and finishes in every project, and do everything to use local wood sources as much as possible. To request a custom order, please contact us today.


A drive for community, with humble beginnings.

"I am committed to excellence through design, and who I am as a person. I believe we are drawn to create by the way we feel. I believe we were created beautifully to create beautiful things.

While interacting with members of my own beliefs, ethnic, community, or with others, if I hear hateful comments from anyone about members of any other community, I pledge to stand up for the other and challenge bigotry in any form. I believe we are all humans-BEING.

My vision with M&R is to create a one-of-a-kind storefront in Bentonville, Arkansas. Hosting socials, leading bicycle rides, opening up basic-advance woodworking classes, selling our stock designs, and promoting local MAKERS by having their work on the floor at ZERO cost.

Maker and Racer is driven by people who love the craft, and want to see it pass on through generations. My goal is to create a local cycling/woodworking community."



Mandy Dye

"We have had several pieces done and have loved every one of them. Thomas is very professional and puts his heart into all his work. I’m a perfectionist, and he has exceeded my expectations in quality and aesthetics with surprisingly quick turnaround."


Noah Allen

"As an owner of one of your tables, I can say one of the things it does the best is stand on it's own, no help required. Excellent work, my friend."


Elise Vaessen

"We asked Thomas to make a changing table. We didn't have a clear idea of what we wanted. We simply gave him the measurements and asked him to use a material that could remind us Oklahoma.We were so happy to see him working on this project. And he did such a great job!We highly recommend Thomas! Don't hesitate to challenge his creativity, I'm sure he'll surprise you!"


Personalized Design + Handrafted Products

Our goal is to see beautiful spaces, and fill it with beautiful things. But when it's your space, the specifics matter. That's why our team is standing by to help curate the perfect custom piece to fit that space.


From consultation, 3D design render, to the final build- there's no piece Maker & Racer can't handle.
