Lyall & Sons Woodsmiths is a small shop in Tennessee. We do custom furniture and cabinetry as well as antique restoration and refinishing. We only do a limited number of pieces a month but our focus is quality custom work.
I have been a woodworker and turner for more than 25 years. I started around the age of 16 with a hammer and my Dad's old jigsaw. I have been blessed with a shop full of equipment but, sometimes, long for those Saturday mornings of so many years ago building in the back yard.
If your ever in my neck of the woods feel free to drop by the shop. We'll pull up a chair and see who can tell the biggest lies!
Use the guards,
-- Lyall & Sons Woodsmiths...Custom handcrafted woodwork since 1989
