“My son Jack and I had an incredible experience working with Ernie and Glenn. I couldn’t have been more pleased and proud of what we had done together as a father and son, working alongside another father and son. We can’t wait to come back!”
KinojozpTWalter R., Carmel, NY
“The one-on-one atmosphere allows the ability to ask questions and learn a breadth of knowledge. I highly encourage everyone to drop in and see the awesome things Ernie and Glenn are doing with their unique craft regardless of your expertise of woodworking.”

“The Palmieri’s are not only gifted craftsmen but extremely generous. While at their shop, it’s become apparent that the only thing they enjoy more than thrilling people with their work, are the thrills others get from learning to make things happen themselves.”
