Custom Wine Buffet, Media Cabinet & Fireplace Mantle

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  When we had an outdated empty media niche and a fireplace project where we needed a custom mantle…again you were there!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.

San Diego Natural History Museum

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.

Custom Southwest/Indian Dining Table and Chairs

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.

Walnut Dining Table & Cherry Chairs and Bench

Taylor & Sarah wrote: We contacted Brian Murphy about building a custom walnut table and eventually chairs for our new home. We had received quotes from numerous people and eventually settled on Brian's because his designs and pricing were superior to the competition. Initially we didn't have a very clear idea of what we wanted for our unique space but Brian was able to draft some incredible designs up for us which we fell in love with. After settling on the best wood for our table because of its durability and look Brian got to work on our new table. It was a pleasure meeting with Brian every so often to check in on the progress. We still remember the moment when Brian first unveiled the finished project to us because we were in pure awe. The end result of our finished table was better than we could have imagined and is such a perfect fit in our new home. After our table was completed we asked Brian to build some custom chairs and a unique bench to accommodate our new table and space. Once again we provided him with our concepts and ideas which Brian took note of and came back with some great sketches and design ideas. He worked his magic once again and we now have two beautiful chairs and an amazing bench for the head of our table which is a truly striking piece that grabs everyone's attention as they enter our dining room. We are so pleased to have worked with Brian Murphy and highly recommend him and his work to anyone seeking some beautiful woodwork. 

California West Bow Arm Chair & Custom Bevel Edge Mirror In quartered red oak & cherry

Anneke & John wrote: We had Brian make a mirror and one of his signature bow-arm chairs out of cherry and oak. They are both beautifully made, carefully crafted, and a pleasure to look at. We really enjoy sitting in the chair, which is quite comfortable. The mirror and chair have a classic look but with a contemporary twist that makes them eye-catching and instant conversation pieces whenever we have guests visit our home. Brian was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for custom-built well-made furniture.

Twin Bookcases and Mission Sideboard

S. Conner wrote:  Its been three months since you delivered the two matching craftsman bookcases and buffet to my house, and I wanted to finally write you a note to tell you how much we appreciate the quality of what you built. More to the point, I wanted to let you know that we enjoy them every single day in that the quality and beauty of what you created never seems to escape me. As someone who has dabbled in woodworking over the years, I am confident that what we paid vs. the product we got, was irreconcilable. The pieces are simply amazing and I wanted you to know that they aren't a thing of passing in our home. Every time I look at them I feel respect for the time and energy and skill it took to create them. They aren't just furniture, they are art.

In other words, THANKS VERY MUCH and we would do it again in a heartbeat.
