Shop Foreman Bob Aungst has been with George’s Furniture for 32 years. Bob has always enjoyed the pleasures of woodworking, so when George’s Furniture offered him a job, he wanted to give it a try as a career.
Before Bob worked at George’s, his family used the meadow on the furniture business’s property to pasture their heifers. Bob and George got to know one another as Bob would come to the wood shop to collect shavings for his cattle bedding, as well as visiting the showroom that was located in Elizabethtown.
Bob’s favorite part of working for George’s Furniture is watching a piece of rough lumber transform into a beautiful piece of handmade furniture. His absolute favorite project was a specially designed raised panel rolltop desk.
In his free time, Bob enjoys gardening and hunting.

Designer and Salesman Anthony Heisey has been working for George’s Furniture for 29 years. “My great grandfather, grandfather, and father all had an interest in trees and woodworking,” he explains. His childhood home had a small shop in the basement which he used, and he enjoyed shop classes for his four-year high school career.
The team at George’s Furniture work together to produce high quality pieces, keeping each other accountable to the handcrafted standards. Anthony has thoroughly enjoyed the projects that have crossed his path, but one in particular that stands out is the walnut and maple laminated crutches he built to a custom size. He’s also had the chance to design a coffee table that was a display for a snake.
When he’s not designing furniture or assisting customers, Anthony enjoys being involved with the Boy Scouts as a Scoutmaster. He also enjoys the outdoors—hiking, biking, bird watching, and kayaking—as well as his small fish pond which he enjoys maintaining.
