In 2009, he opened a showroom and retail shop, “If It’s Wood and More”, in Historic Urbanna, Virginia, showcasing many pieces of individually handcrafted solid wood furnishings and accessories. Each piece is unique; no two pieces are exactly alike. He specializes in creating the designs of his customers. Anything from cutting boards, hanging jewelry boxes, custom wine cellars, accent tables, bookcases, buffets, mantels, box newel posts, hutches and armoires…you name it. If you have a special piece and a design in mind, he can make it real. Your Style, Your Size, Your Finish!
The favorite piece of furniture in my house is a corner cupboard made by Billy more than 20 years ago. I also have smaller pieces, an oyster bench, cutting board and recipe box that all show the same beautiful, quality workmanship.

Pretty soon everything in my house will have been hand made by Billy. He takes my designs, no matter what the style and creates it! His work is outstanding. He is the only person I call when I want to add to my decor.
