Greg Harkins has lived in Vaughan Mississippi for all of his life. At an early age he began studying the craft of wood working and since that time he has never worked for anybody else. His techniques are passed down from the mid-1800s and he is preserving a virtually lost craft.

Off a winding country road in Mississippi, he makes all types of wood furniture but his staple is rocking chairs. His rocking chairs have been requested by everybody from the Pope, five United States Presidents, numerous celebrities and everyday customers. Each final product is it’s own. There is no duplicate and it will last a lifetime. He likes to say that if you make these chairs right, “you can’t tear them up even if you tried.”

Like his craft, Greg Harkins is entirely original and handmade.

To contact Greg, it is best to give him a call because he does not do email.
