Owner / Draftsman / Master Carpenter

Michael

Michael has been a Mr. Fix-It and master carpenter for over 35 years. He is self-taught and was a member of the Philadelphia’s Carpentry union for several decades. His extensive carpentry experience has perfected his trade…if it’s made of wood he can build it! Whether he is working on the new addition for the showroom, or his 1813 farmhouse, overseeing the guys in the building shop, working on drawings for custom furniture designs. Hardware is another one of the specialties.  He is always on the move. Outside of the family business he enjoys fly fishing, and riding his restored 1960’s Triumph and BSA motorcycles, and spending time with his adult children.

In addition to assisting in the office part-time, Jules helps with the daily tasks of taking care of all the farm critters, watering the plants, and editing the website. She has helped Kelly with her design and decorating with several projects such as decorating our Church for Christmas and Casey and Rebecca’s wedding.

She is currently pursuing a ministry degree and is starting her own ministry called “Wisdom Of Many,” which you can look up on social media platforms.

Oakie found us in January of 2017 and we named him because he reminded us of a piece of White Oakwood. He watches over our shop by going in and out all day. At night, you can find him sleeping in one of his many beds around the shop. When you pet him he will roll over for a belly rub. With sawdust between his toes, he will certainly greet you if you come for a visit.
