About Windmill Hill Cabinets
Windmill Hill Cabinets is owned and operated by Jack Kurilla
Jack Kurilla began his woodworking career 34 years ago at the School of Guitar Research and Design (GRD), where he learned the art of building acoustic instruments. At the time, GRD was located in Thetford, Vermont; it has since moved to California and reopened as the American School of Lutherie. After completing his studies, Jack went to work learning the carpentry phase of building and after a few years moved into cabinetmaking. In 1979, Jack began his own business doing light carpentry and cabinetmaking, while the instrument building was put on hold for awhile.
In 1984, Windmill Hill Cabinets and Design was born. Jack has spent 30 years refining his designs and building techniques through direct work with builders, architects, and individual clients. Jack has established himself as one of the finest cabinetmakers in New England. His business has expanded to produce custom-designed furniture as well as commissioned reproductions. Recently, Jack has revived his instrument building education to rebuild and repair instruments. He is working on two electric violins and building several custom guitars.
Windmill Hill Cabinets offers complete design and building capabilities. The company specializes in working closely with clients to design, build, and install their dream kitchen, bath, library, work station, or furniture. Jack's work is carefully crafted to fit the structure and age of a building whether it is an 1870s home, a modern loft, or any style in between. His craft has taken him from Dublin, New Hampshire to Scarsdale, New York to Manahawkin, New Jersey, and to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, where he has completed numerous projects over the past ten years.
Jack Kurilla's designs are unique and carried out with the greatest attention to detail. Jack seeks to realize his clients' dreams and produce satisfied customers. Windmill Hill Cabinets delivers on that goal.
Windmill Hill Cabinets is located in Dublin, New Hampshire, where Jack lives with his wife.
