Welcome to Windwood Custom Woodworking

What I do is build things.  I am an accomplished cabinet maker and woodworker as well as construction general contractor.

I have the knowledge to design and build a house from scratch, and have, as well as all the interior finishes including the furniture and cabinetry……all from scratch.  I specialize in kitchen and bath design and build.  I am completely skilled in residential electric, plumbing, and all interior finishes, whether new construction or remodel.

Yeah, I hate doing ceramic tile, as you can tell by these photos.That’s not really true.  It’s tiring and time consuming and shower pans can be a bit of a trial,  but very rewarding when the job is finished.  That bench is made of Masaranduba, a South American hardwood that is like iron.  Some left overs from my front porch.   I really like it better than a slippery old ceramic tile box stuck in the corner, which most bathroom designers seem to cling to.  I think it adds a bit of style and breaks up the tile surfaces a lot.  It also matches all the rest of the woodwork in the room.And I love it when a plan comes together.  This was a total gut.  In this image you can see the attention to detail around the tiled window casings in the shower stall.  This picture was shot before the glass shower enclosure was installed.This is a special bathroom vanity requested by an interior designer friend of mine.  Cherry with marine spar varnish.  Umpteen coats.  Some people don’t believe wood vanities are smart or will work.

Mine (below) is 17 year old walnut (vintage 2003) with under mount ceramic bowls, which “they” said can’t be done, but the pairing works just fine if you do the prep and finish work right.  Still the original finish is just fine after 17 years.One of my favorite and most extensive bathroom remodels.  This was a total gut, with a laundry room added across the hall by taking part of a bedroom.This is a cool bathroom.  Heated floors throughout.  I didn’t like the tile at first, but then, that’s not required of me. LOL.  Anyway, once finished it was a knockout.  Totally exotic and in your face.  This bathroom rocks.Below is an interesting request and not one that I was all in on in the beginning.  I couldn’t see it at all, but the owner coached me through all the design aspects that she expected and we accomplished the project quite nicely.  Another happy camper.This was a major plumbing job, with new stack from basement to roof, as well as lateral replacement for the kitchen, which I also ended up remodeling down the road.There was a lot of pain and engineering in working in this old house, as we remodeled the entire house, but the most time consuming and rewarding part of the job was the restoration of the old claw foot tub.  I put a beautiful gloss black finish on the outside and had all the feet and fixtures re-chromed.  It looked brand new and very nice.The wainscot paneling was the one thing I was skeptical of from the start, but it goes with the house and the bath ended up looking pretty smart.  I was happy and so was the owner.  She still lives there.  Finished in 1998.

I seem to do more bathrooms than kitchens, but this is one that, thanks to the homeowner, worked out very nicely, quick and easy.  The worst part was cutting a hole in the roof and routing the vent fan.  I hate getting in attics, especially with the house has a 4/12 pitch roof.  But, that’s part of it all and has to be done.

Here’s another total gut.  I think the one thing to see in this job are the lines created by the tile borders and inlaid trim.  Everything is symetric and the casings around the inset shelving unit and the center stripe are completely coordinated into the whole picture.  The shelf is made of Corian, as are most of the shelves in any of my inset tiled shelving shower units.

You can’t tell, but, as in all my bath remodels, the toilet is a 17″ tall elongated bowl toilet, which I believe is appropriate as a basic for any bath remodel.  I can’t tell you how many times I have been thanked for incorporating this element into the design of my bath remodels.  Everyone loves it.



Since I opened my wood shop in 1990, I have been proud to produce some very nice pieces for my customers.

Walnut Display with beveled glass doors. My design. I think it speaks for itself.
Walnut Cradle. I was asked to take up the project by a customer when her husband, who was going to do the project, passed. It was going to be for his sister. My customer asked me to take the project on and gave me all the materials, which her husband has harvested and dried.
This project came out perfect with all the mortises and tenons, pins and hinges being hand made. I should give a shout out to the magazine that published the plans, but I can’t remember who it was.
Pine Corner Cabinet copied from an Ethan Allen Catalog. This is a very beautiful cabinet up close.
English Country Square to Round Table in walnut. Another engineering project. Copied from a photo. Round sides fold under to make a square table. Hand fabricated tongue and groove parquet inlay.
Walnut book matched veneer top end tables (2).
The Second Wife, is the name of this project. Second wife didn’t want the top box, because it belonged to the first wife. She was informed that it was staying so the husband gave her one of her own to be joined with the first to make them a unit and now it’s all hers.
