George Meringolo, Founder and Project Designer:
George has over 30 years of experience making furniture, first as a hobby and since 2010 as a business. He started this business in his home based 20' x 16' shop an external building built at his home. The business grew so much that the families two car garage was soon needed to finish his projects. In 2013 George moved his business to a 1250 sq. ft. location. As the word began to spread that there was a woodworker that still used old world techniques and "Real Wood," orders for more and larger projects became the new norm. The new space soon proved too small so in September 2014 the facility moved next door to a space that is approximately 2.5 times larger.
