As a kid growing up, I can remember tagging along and helping my grandpa with various projects. My grandpa is a man who's very proud of his Irish heritage, and called me “Finnegan” from early on. Working with a man trained as an engineer and gifted as a handyman, it was routine that every thing was designed beyond the structural requirements, or as he would say “hell for stout.”
In 2012, I began making furniture and cutting boards as gifts for families & friends under the name "Finnegan Woodworks.” Motivated by frustration with the absurd & trendy pricing on “durable, handcrafted goods,” I felt that I could make more affordable, handcrafted goods that will last a lifetime. I continued building and taking on any new woodwork project including kitchen tables, coffee tables, mantels, & cutting boards.
