Custom Furniture of the Highest Quality

jan2020 hdr

I have a chair at the WOOD XI, A Furniture Show at the Escondido Arts Partnership at the corner of Juniper and Grand. There is over $130,000 worth of great furniture on display!!  Stop by when you have time. Murphy’s Fine Woodworking has special prices on some amazing pieces & chairs this winter. Each piece is custom designed and crafted to your specifications.  You will get to participate in the process by selecting wood, finish and fabrics.  Stop by the shop and watch the progress of your piece as it comes to life.  This is quality workmanship at its finest!

I like to think that we build Extraordinary Hand-built Furniture for your Extraordinary Home.  Give us a call to chat about your dreams …
