“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.” – Henry Ford
Hello! I’m Julio Villarreal and I’ve been building things ever since I got my hands on legos. After spending over 28 years in the steel business, I started Julio’s Woodshop so that I could work with my favorite material, wood. I find joy in building things that are useful for my customers and stand the test of time.
While I build and design many different pieces I focus a lot of my work on building tables and accessories for table top games. These games have brought me so much joy with my family and friends and allow me to have a sense of adventure, right in my own home. It makes me smile each time I complete a gaming table knowing that table is going to bring people together for fun. In today’s connected, but disconnected world, playing games face-to-face is not only fun, but needed to really connect with others.
What sets my work apart, is my attention to detail and quality. I make sure to purchase the highest quality domestic wood to build you a piece that is designed efficiently to serve your needs. I am proud to say that everything from Julio’s Woodshop is made by hand (sometimes with help from my dog, Chewy) and Made in the USA.
Please take a look around my site and let me know if there is something I can build for you or if you want to geek out about wood grain, because I do that too.
