OWNER / WOODWORKER / HANDYMAN
Looking for a woodworker or handyman in Brooklyn you can trust? Have an idea for a custom furniture piece or home accessory but don’t know how to start? I’d like to help.
Make Good Traditional Handcrafts was created with the goal of helping homeowners and renters, in Brooklyn and the surrounding area, get the most out of their space and their investment.
It’s my belief that by creating beautiful, functional, and durable objects for our homes, and by maintaining and repairing what we already have, we can save money, send less trash to the landfill, conserve natural resources, and give our homes the love they deserve.
Reach out today and let me know what can I do to help.
If you’ve been searching for the perfect piece to fit into a particular corner in your home, or for a simple organization solution that also looks good, or you know exactly what you want but you can’t seem to find it, talk to me about a custom-made piece. I use mostly hand tools and traditional methods to craft furniture and home accessories that are made to last, drawing on materials and techniques that have stood the test of time.
Patch Restoration and Repair
Most people can think of something in their house that’s in need of a patch-up or minor repair. You may not have the skills to fix it yourself, and some contractors may have turned you away, telling you the job was too small to be worth it to them. I’m a one-man operation, and I’m happy to do small jobs, such as patching gaps in wooden floors, stairs, trim, and molding. We’ll work together to decide how to handle each repair, so that it works best for your home.
Household To-Do Lists
Busy people often don’t have time to take care of all the things on their to-do lists. When that comes to your home, that may mean you’re still waiting to mount that shelf, hang that painting, put up curtain rods, or patch a hole in the wall. Instead of trying to find the time to do it yourself, give me your to-do list and I’ll get it all done.
What People are Saying
“I hired Will to install two large barn doors and a long 14 ft.track. He did a great job without flaw…punctual, clean and very professional! I would hire Will for any upcoming projects. He is great to work with.”
“A true master of his craft. He not only creates the perfect piece that you need, his suggestions and vision go beyond what you could have imagined. He saw a way to reconfigure part of our wall unit into something we needed versus creating a whole new piece. It’s perfection. You would think it was always that way. He’s a perfectionist, a total professional and I’m looking forward to working with Will again.”
“If you want a handyman, hire a friend. If you want a craftsman, hire Will O’Connor. You will be glad you did.”
