Farmington, NY
Click to Apply

We’re a quirky 30-year-old Finger Lakes based, eco-minded fine woodworking and timber frame company with an east coast nexus in Farmington, NY.  Designers, architects, builders, and homeowners come to us for specialized, and highly detailed woodworking projects. Doors, stairs, cabinetry, and furniture are our forte—handcrafted from reclaimed and sustainable wood using traditional tooling and modern CNC and software technology. People, planet, and prosperity are what drive our business.

If you’re an accomplished and creative custom wood-based finisher with the know-how to take on unique and challenging projects, we’d like to know you.  Our ideal finisher thrives on more esoteric challenges like color and texture matches using applied and reactive finishes (from oils and urethanes to paints and water-based products) in a production setting and has the moxie to work with some of the finest wood craftspeople in the region.

The Job:

This position is critical to the production of our fine woodworking projects. The finisher role uses familiarity with the technical aspects of wood finishing to enhance and complete custom work.  He/she uses a creative and organized approach to solve client needs with a wide reaching and forever changing palate of colors, textures, and finish mediums.

The Right Person:

  • Minimum two years experience finishing in a production setting
  • Experience with quality control in relation to production projects
  • Demonstrated active problem solving and creative thinking
  • Ability to overcome challenges & accept feedback
  • Skilled in project management and/or project coordination
  • Detail oriented and able to follow directions
  • Strong work ethic and integrity
  • Highly self-motivated
  • Bonus: experience with woodworking fabrication techniques

Why work with us:

Full-time, year round work with paid days off, matching 401K, 70% company-paid health insurance, and profit-sharing in years of plenty. We are a do-good ethos 30% employee-owned company and you won’t find better coworkers and craftsmen around town. Pay based on experience.

To Apply:

If you’d like us to consider your resume, please include a cover letter when you email. We actively seek to build an inclusive and diverse workplace where people from all walks of life are welcomed. We don’t discriminate for all the right reasons, and are partial to people with lots of common sense. Sorry, but we won’t be able to respond to all applicants.
