Mahogany pergola with copper pipe on a Manhattan rooftop

    My profession is woodworking...it's also my passion, and it shows in my work. I love details, and pay particular attention to them.
I usually work alone, but on some jobs, I bring in my friend Avra. We have both been carpenters for over 25 years, with experience in all phases of woodworking. The last 5 years, we have teamed up to do landscape woodworking, including decks, arbors, pergolas, planters, fences, and even a treehouse. I work mostly with Ipe, Mahogany, Cedar, and pressure treated southern yellow pine, but am not limited to those species. I plug all the screw holes, sand the deck, and seal it with Penofin.
     I'll customize the project to your needs and budget, and will help you with design, or work from your plans. I work mostly in Brooklyn and Manhattan, but I will travel. I give free estimates, and will supply you with current references.
