Don & Candy Zech: I have known Brian for 30 years. I have actually done some woodworking myself but when it came to building and customizing some pieces for our home there was no other thought than Brian. He has done at least 7 pieces for us over the years. He has built coffee tables, side tables, a library table and an Entertainment Hutch that looks like a Buffet. But his coup d’etat would have to be working with me to convert a ten-foot-tall built in entertainment center made from solid oak into a shelving wall unit with “Murphy Doors” that open to expose a 300+ bottle refrigerated wine cabinet! Fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, great, beautiful, artistic pieces. ~ Cheers!
Debbie Tammariello: Beautiful custom wood work is hard to find. But Brian has designed and built a gorgeous mission style leather chair and amazing cradle for our first grandchild and we are so pleased with the finished product. His eye for detail is superb.
Linda Doll wrote: I have loved and admired Brian's chairs each and every year at the Arts Partnership auction. In 2015 I finally was high bidder and purchased my chair, I loved it so much that after it was delivered I called Brian and ordered a matching piece. They are now the center pieces of my living room and are definitely works of art. My favorite place to relax is in one of these chairs. Thank you Brian
Curtis & Kerrigan Diehl wrote: We are delighted and honored to have your custom pieces of art in our home! You are a true artist and we absolutely love sharing our family moments in front of your spectacular craftsmanship. When we dreamed up a custom wine rack buffet with impossible dimensions and space constraints, you came through and nailed it! When we had an outdated empty media niche and a fireplace project where we needed a custom mantle…again you were there! Spectacular finished products all 3 and we couldn’t be happier with the experience in working with you from sketches on paper to fully realized showroom quality finished pieces. It is always our pleasure getting to tell friends and family who admire them about Murphy’s Fine Woodworking. As long as you are still designing and building custom furniture, Curtis and I will have fun thinking about what our next furniture adventure with Brian Murphy will be! With our highest regard and most complete satisfaction, Thank you.
Michael Field: Take a load off: There are a lot of things about “Coast to Cactus” that make Michael Field a very happy designing man. He is thrilled that the museum’s most-recent remodel uncovered some boarded-up windows and historical skylights. He can’t get enough of the Arts and Crafts style furniture built by Escondido’s Brian Murphy and the tiles based on historical California designs. You will find Brian's work at the whale exhibit.
Karen & Eddie wrote: We searched for a breakfast nook table with chairs and a bench for months without success. When we found Brian and Murphy's Fine Furniture, he was able to create a piece that fit the oddly shaped area. Eddie wanted heavy rough wood with visible grain. Brian searched available wood and found the perfect pieces. He even included a history of the wood, as we did not want the traditional varieties with a smooth finish. The craftsmanship and design are beyond compare. We will most certainly contact Brian again, when we are looking for more furniture., or art as the case may be.
