About Us

 A family owned small business, located in Western Pennsylvania, uses a significant amount of "upcycled" and "repurposed" material.  A large amount of our hardwoods come from deconstructed buildings in Western PA.   We try our best to be good stewards to the environment. 

Our Story

   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
