Paul and Laura Fruehan started Wood-N-You Like It Custom Woodworking over 24 years ago when they were asked if they could duplicate a child’s stool for a friend. Paul started woodworking at an early age in the family workshop that was originally equipped with tools that belonged to his grandfather, Peter Fruehan. Peter was a pattern maker by trade and worked many years for the Lackawanna Rail Road making wooden patterns of parts for steam locomotives. Several of Peters' original hand tools are still used today in our workshop. Laura is our resident artist. She has always had an interest in art and painting, and has taken numerous art classes. Paul constructs all our items, and Laura completes a substantial amount of the finishing.
Our business today focuses on two areas. First, we build commission pieces that range from case goods to home furnishings. In addition to our custom orders, we are always finding ways to use recycled and cut off pieces of wood. A large amount of wood destined for the fireplace or landfill is converted into useful and decorative items. To this extent, we produce a small line of gift items that are significantly upcycled.
Finally, we firmly believe that we should give back to nature for supplying the original trees that supply our basic feed stock. A portion or our earnings are used to support the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, Rails to Trails Foundation, and Audubon Society. Additionally, we regularly support the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank (412) 462-5956

I Made it Sweet
We have taken our love of wine to include a line of items that use barrel staves, corks and other items, to make these useful items.
We have been custom crafting these children's stools for over 25 years. The main body of the stool is constructed from a piece of 2x12 hem/fur with turned hardwood legs. Each letter is individually cut from the stool blank and a plywood bottom is then bonded to the top. All exposed edges are routered and the letters are individually fitted. The completed stool is finished with non-toxic water based paints, stain and polyurethane topcoat for years of use.
The stools are available in 2 finishes, Brazilian Cherry, which is a reddish brown color or natural. The letters are generally painted primary colors for boys and pastels for girls. Specific color variations can be discussed at the time of order.
Each letter is removable " A Puzzle" Most measure 17.5" L x 11" w x 7.5" h. Ready in 4 to 6 weeks. We can ship anywhere!
All cutting boards are made from recycled American Hardwoods and finished with three coats of a Butcher Block conditioner. We offer styles such as a Cut & Serve, handled cutting board, regular board, and butcher block. Please call for availability.
We love to hear from our customers. Please share your experience!
