OUR STORY

After completing his apprenticeship under a master carpenter in Germany, Paul Mair immigrated to the United States.  In 1985 he founded his company Custom Furniture Creations, in Austin, Texas, and incorporated in 1998 to become Paul Mair Design, Inc. 

Since then the company has grown and expanded in its scope and capabilities.  It was one of the first cabinet shops in the Austin area to embrace European cabinetry. A lot has changed in our industry over the years.  While craftmanship is always necessary, the CNC revolution and Automation are essential to modern woodworking.  Now the shop houses multiple CNC machines, an automated beam saw, and the latest in edge treatment technology.  

We have the capability to turn raw materials into a finished product.  We offer full-service in-house veneering, staining and finishing, and solid surface countertop departments. 

An Austin-based Architectural Millwork Company, we specialize in Architectural Commercial Interiors. We are a full-service facility.  Everything from planning, fabrication, and finishing to on-site installation - always with an eye for detail. We have 25 dedicated employees in our 30,000 sq ft facility who are focused on your needs.

WE DO IT ALL

01

DRAFTING

Achieving quality craftmanship and results takes strategic engineering and planning.  Our talented and experienced drafting department will be with you every step of the way. 

 

First, we will engineer and draft the overall design and layout of your project.  Then, measure the area on-site to verify everything will fit exactly and ensure any onsite revisions are addressed early in the planning process.  Finally, our team will utilize CAD and direct connections to our Beam saw and CNC machines to create the parts and pieces of your project. 

 

This process ensures that your project is built to your exact specifications.  Let's turn your dreams into reality!

FINISHING

Millwork and cabinetry are brought to life in our finish department - we are capable of creating custom or matched stains.  We have a custom mixing area, spray booth, drying area and quality control checks. 

05

DELIVERIES

Our delivery team will ensure your products are carefully packed and loaded before being delivered to the jobsite.  We are also the only woodshop in the Austin area that does deliveries with a zero emissions Tesla Model X electric vehicle.  Just one way in which we are doing our part to support a sustainable future. 

INSTALLATION

Our talented team of installers will make sure the job is done right on site! We have OSHA 30 and OSHA 10 certified installers.

VENEER

We are one of the only woodshops in the Austin area that have a full service custom veneering department.  We are able to turn raw veneer into completely custom products.  We cut, stitch, and press completely custom panels - any veneer and any grain pattern.  This allows us to create all kinds of completely unique designs.  

02

FABRICATION

We have the skilled personnel and machinery capabilities to bring your ideas to life! 

We use 3 CNC machines - 2 nested and 1 point-to-point Pod and Rail, a Beam Saw, and a brand new Edgebanding machine with hot air capability. 

 

Hot air edgebanding is a new method utilizing compressed hot air to bond edgebanding to a panel.  The result is a virtually invisible glue line - up to 400% thinner than traditional hot melt glue.  It boasts a significantly higher adhesive force compared to traditional hot melt glue, and is stain, water, and steam resistant.  Additionally it offers anti-bacterial benefits that make it a great solution for restaurants, health-care and similar public uses.
