A passion for craftsmanship and attention to detail lie at the heart of my work. My passion for this craft is founded on the belief that it is the craftsman’s duty to create structures of enduring beauty – structures that will last far longer than himself and that will be used and appreciated by future generations. I emphasize a combination of thoughtful, timeless design, traditional methods and skilled execution, to achieve superior results.
Finch Woodworks is a custom Design+Build company located in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. We specialize in the design, construction, and repair of timber framed structures for commercial, residential and historic projects. Timber framing is a 2,600+ year old tradition of joining wood to wood without metal fasteners. Instead, the intersections of the structural elements are connected by a pegged mortise and tenon joint. The longevity of timber framed buildings throughout Asia, Europe, and early North America is a testament to their durability and appeal. Timber framing has always been a “green” construction method: we use wood that took 100 years to grow and create a building that will last 300 years or more – that is the essence of sustainability.
