One-of-a-kind furniture and accessories

Seekonk Woodworking is a one-person shop run by Phil Gruppuso.

"Woodworking has been a serious, life-long avocation for me. In 2013, I semi-retired from my day job and founded Seekonk Woodworking as a way to share my work with others. I work alone in my home shop. All of my pieces are one-of-a-kind, and most are of my own design.

"I work in many styles, from Queen Anne to Craftsman to Shaker to Mid-Century Modern. All of my work (except the occasional painted piece) is finished with a combination of shellac, varnish and wax depending on the need for durability. Most pieces are made from domestic hardwoods or farmed mahogany, though I sometimes incorporate exotics and highly figured veneers."
