Beautiful Wood, Great Color Stain

Tim & Lori Pfeiler: Living Room & Dining Room

We bought a new house, and we picked our new floor to show off Brian Murphy's furniture! A dark cork floor to show off the light wood. And it really does. You walk into our living room, and we hear, Wow! Your furniture is so beautiful, your chairs, couch, coffee table fit this room and invite you in. We arranged our living room to show off Brian's fine wood working. And it shows. The grain of the wood shows: the style/shape of the furniture fits our room perfectly.

And then, we have a sideboard. Its purpose is to show off our beautiful glass collection. What a presentation. Beautiful wood, great color stain, contrasting with a collection of hand-blown glasses. Brian Murphy is a master wood worker. He is meticulous with his furniture; he falls in love with the grain and makes it shine.

The Perfect Piece

Jeffrey & Susan Epp   Room Divider:

I needed a furniture piece to center between my dining and living room, a visible centerpiece of sorts and yet still functional.  Brian Murphy spent several visits with us designing the perfect unit.  He was a great listener, very patient, and had helpful suggestions about materials, stains, styles, and everything else that went into the design. His construction was methodical and precise, and it was awesome to visit the shop and watch him work.  When it came time for installation, he was a perfectionist.   I knew Brian because of his involvement in the Escondido community, and I’m proud to have his work in our home!
