The Touch O' the Irish
Woodworker Gabriel McKeagney is a fifth-generation artisan from Ireland using CNC technology to impart his sense of European style in southern California's homes.
Gabriel McKeagney hails from the County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland and from five-generations of family members known for their skills in woodwork, blacksmithing and masonry. Having an affinity for wood, art and math, it was an easy decision for Gabriel to leave school at 15 years old to begin his full-time apprenticeship as a master woodworker.
During these early years, Eileen took on various hats, many of which she still wears today, such as managing the office and creating marketing materials. Gabriel worked on projects, ranging from simple box building to cutting architectural mouldings and hand-carving intricate designs in wood.
The Tempo Collection includes doors, drawer fronts, legs, stiles, aprons and crowns. All are CNC routed from hardwood or MDF. There are three styles: the French Avignon, the Spanish Navarra, and the Italian Tuscan.
Gabriel works with designers, homebuilders, architects and owners to develop ideas, but he also creates his own designs flavored with different facets of European styling.
