Thomas Ferrie is most known for his Sack Back Windsor Armchairs which are reproductions of the style common in colonial American life and into the 19th Century. The same style of chair is on display at Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

He also makes stools, benches, walking sticks, beer and wine caddies, pens, lighthouses, bowls and other items. One of his newer items is a six pack beer caddy with space in the center for a Freez Pak to keep the bottles cold.

Another of his chairs, the Comb Back Armchair, was selected for the Art of the State juried exhibit at the Pennsylvania State Museum in Harrisburg.
