About Us

Surface Workshop Inc. was officially founded in 1996. However, the beginnings trace back to the 1950’s and 60’s when our carpenters were making plywood from scratch and hand forming each piece of wood with simple hand tools. Our president, got his start in 1970 as a furniture finishing apprentice and is now a master of his craft.

His knowledge continues to expand with each project we complete successfully and he has passed on the love of his craft down to his two daughters. The two, an architect and interior designer, have brought their design industry experience to add another level of expertise to the company.


As a family owned and operated business, we work together to deliver the finest millwork and furniture. While we now use advanced software to visualize and plan construction, we also work each piece by hand. Our attention to detail in each project pulls from our long history of traditional methods combined with the best of modern technology.
