Yes, right before the New England "snowmageddon 2015."

Outdoor Bar, Shea's Essex


Friedl has years of experience working on custom bar tops, both indoor and outdoor. 

The photo above is of a custom outdoor bar top at Shea's Riverside in Essex. Go check them out and sit at the fun bar inside, Frield made that too. Don't forget to look at the custom moulding's. You guessed it! He made those too.

Design it. Build it. Restore it. Install it.

Furniture is meant to be used and enjoyed.

Dining Table

Made to last a lifetime. . .and probably longer.


Each peice is hand made by Friedl himself. His workshop is filled with tools that you would have come across at the beginning of the 18th century; from hand planers to carving tools to wood clamps. You won't find any heavy machinery here, just some typical wood shop tools and a guy who can make anything happen.... anything.
