Projects included the restoration for charter of a 45′ schooner and the repair of extensive collision damage on a 60′ Danish built sloop. I was also involved in the construction of a number of multihull sailboats, including several transatlantic race boats.Yacht "Caroler", cockpit aft. Lead carpenter, Bill Kelly

Sears Meadow in Winter


















In 1987 I moved to the town of Goshen, in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts to set up shop on the edge of Sears Meadow.

I built and am working in a timber framed, 2000 square foot, heated, and fully equipped shop. I have a separate, heated 220 square foot finishing room.

Since 1987 I have offered high quality architectural woodworking and cabinetry to homeowners and contractors. In 1995 I began to offer furniture grade display pedestals for sculpture and collectibles.

Currently, I continue to offer design/build services of top quality, custom residential woodworking . Stairs, curved millwork and custom finishes are specialties that I have spent years refining. I work with environmentally friendly water based finishes that provide excellent results.

I am always happy to discuss the design and construction aspects of your project. Thanks for the interest, Bill Kelly
