About Tom

Tom was a policeman at the Dublin Airport for 20 years before immigrating to America. He is a naturalized citizen and very proud of his heritage and his adopted country.

Tom has been a carpenter for 45+ years, doing a lot of finish work; crown molding, fireplace mantels, book cases, cupboards and the like. He has recently returned to making furniture, and takes great pride in the quality of his finish work. He likes working with any kind of wood and can build anything to your design and specification. Tom loves politics and history, and we expect he will start a blog in order to express himself in the near future.

Where to see Tom’s work

Tom sells his furniture by order and at area Arts and Crafts events in the Pacific Northwest (see Schedule). You can also arrange to see his work at his shop on S. Samson Trail in McCall by calling him (208) 861-3273.

About Tom and Merrily

Tom and Merrily were introduced by family members in Boise. They courted for a year at the now-defunct “Dublin Up” pub in downtown Boise, drinking shameless quantities of Blackstone Merlot. They were married on February 14, 2003, at the Hitchin’ Post in Coeur d’Alene. Together they have seven children, 27 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Merrily has been practicing law in Boise and McCall since 1976. They now live full time in McCall, Idaho.
