Not only is Brian's workmanship excellent, but his attention to the fine details and design really make these items of furniture one-of-a- kind. Brian spent a significant amount of time researching the best way to affordably add a special design I wanted on the credenza doors, without additional cost to me.

The mixtures of alder and cherry wood as well as the stately form of the bench invite people to sit and enjoy art. They usually ask "Can I sit here?" because Brian's furniture is a beautiful work of art in and of itself.

In Brian Murphy, of Murphy’s Fine Woodworking, we found everything we were looking for, and more. Brian is more than a woodworker who makes furniture; he is an artist with a refined eye for detail. Each piece was hand-crafted of superior quality and exquisite detail. For our project, he used quarter-sawn oak to give a spectacular grain pattern then handpicked the pieces with the most distinctive grain to use in the most visible areas of each piece. The drawers of our bedroom dresser were made from the same piece of oak and the grain pattern flows continuously across the dresser. We were so impressed with the Mission style living room and dining room furniture Brian made for us, that we commissioned him to make a bedroom set, as well. We now have family heirlooms and beautiful pieces of “art” throughout our home. We love the furniture and we loved working with Brian.
