An architectural detail fashioned with ‘attention to detail’ sounds redundant; but the phrase correctly describes the precision applied to even the smallest aspect of a Freeport Woodworking project.

Based on lifestyle, Freeport Woodworking will build a workstation amid the hustle of daily activities or a quiet, wainscoted library. Commercial projects range from an eco-friendly design studio to a dramatic curved mahogany reception desk. Life without work is unrealistic,…
