Architectural Woodworker Peter Cavalier


As a former engineer, Peter Cavalier of Architectural Woodworking is all about attention to detail. For many years he worked as a chemical engineer, traveling all over the world. He always had a passion for woodworking and architecture. He alone built his entire house from the ground up. When he retired, he decided to turn that passion for carpentry into a full time business, and Architectural Woodworking was born.

Fine mantles and fireplace walls are only a few of the pieces he creates. He also designs and builds custom interior and exterior doors, exquisite libraries, studies and offices, stairs – circular, elliptical, spiral and straight. He builds fine cabinetry and complete kitchens. Custom architectural mouldings and millwork are the hallmarks of his designs.

Peter and I together designed and he built this beautiful mantle and fireplace surround. Faux painting and glazing work done by Jana Schemm of JanArt Decorative painting.
