Paul’s craft focuses on the many aspects of finish carpentry. To name a few:

  • Straight, curved, and spiral staircases
  • Handrails and wall rails
  • Mouldings and skirtboards
  • Coffered ceilings
  • Wood panelling
  • Door and window casings
  • Columns and corbels


Paul’s creative talent is evident in his line of custom furnishings. Using traditional woodworking techniques which he was taught as a young man in Ireland, Paul designs and builds distinctive furnishings for the dining room, bedroom and living room. He chooses his raw materials carefully, working with high quality lumber such as American Eastern Black Cherry, Honduras Mahogany and Wenge. Each piece is carefully handcrafted and finished with high attention to detail, assuring a graceful addition to the home.

  • Paul came to our rescue in our remodeling project. Our contractor was baffled by the complexity of the staircase and could not build it so we brought Paul in. He is a true master of his craft. Paul completed his work with great attention to detail and produced stairs that are comfortable to walk on and beautiful to look at. He worked very closely with us in every step of the process to ensure he produced what we wanted. Many visitors, including contractors, have admired his work when they come through the house.
