“I entrusted HopewellWoodwork to create a unique wooden box to hold family recipes as a gift for my daughter who is getting married. Jonathan’s creation is certainly functional, but more importantly it is beautifully made and something my daughter will always treasure. Thank you, Jonathan!” – Name + item purchased

“Jonathan at HopewellWoodwork has an innate sense for revealing the beauty and potential within wood as it’s crafted into elegant artisanal pieces. It’s probably all those years spent growing up surrounded by the unspoiled forests of New Hampshire maple, oak and pine. His handcrafted period furniture – whether custom or purchased from stock – will be the centerpiece of your family meals and celebrations and become precious heirlooms to share from generation to generation.” – Vickie, proud owner of numerous HWW original bowls and a custom-made nightstand


I recently hired Jonathan to do three projects for me; sanding and staining an old table, building an intricate custom bookcase and building a coffee table.   Jonathan communicates very well with his customers before and during the project to make sure he is fulfilling their requirements in regards to color, wood type, design etc.  He provides very accurate drawings / computer designed prototypes upfront which are very helpful to visually imagine the final product.  Jonathan creates excellent pieces, and all of my projects have exceeded my expectations.  I would highly recommend this woodworker.  Beautiful work.

Thank you so much for our gorgeous dining room table.  Collaborating with you on the design and your descriptions (and drawings) of alternative techniques was so much fun, taught us so much, and resulted in a table that we absolutely love and feel such a part of.  Your understanding and love of working with such amazing wood and spot on suggestions for finishes and assembly resulted in a perfect piece of art.  I can’t remember a dinner party where someone didn’t start a discussion on how beautiful and unique our table is.  Thank you so much for your time, your patience, and mostly, for our amazing table!
