This allows clients have a bespoke product that is unrestricted in terms of design and finishing options.

The team is headed up by Philip Mc Rory. “I completed an exceptional apprenticeship under Mark Flynn of MDS Construction and I never looked back! I have always had a keen interest in woodwork and carpentry, so to be in a position to work on my passion on a daily basis is a dream come true.

I am very lucky to have worked on many high profile projects, including the refurbishment of the Book of Kells display in Trinity College, along with many other sensitive and exclusive private houses,” he explained.

“We are based in Dublin but we get to work in many beautiful & historical homes throughout Ireland. Delivering bespoke cabinetry that blends in with the existing items in the home, which could be centuries old, gives me a real feeling of job satisfaction.

We have a small team and we definitely wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them. Andy Breslin is an essential part of the woodwork team here and myself & Andy work closely on all aspects of the workshop production & site fitting! We also have a very talented young cabinet maker, Adam and our apprentice Jane. It’s brilliant to help the next generation come through and to pass on the techniques & skills we have.

“We focus in on bespoke handmade cabinetry, wardrobes, kitchens and built in fitted furniture units. I’m a student of the trade and I pride myself on our ability to deliver unique one off, bespoke pieces with the highest quality finishes,” finished Mr McRory.
