Our History


Over 35 years ago, Jonathan Pauls Fine Woodwork & Design was established in Seattle, WA. Founder Jonathan P. Wellnitz began crafting fine custom furniture in the basement of his home. Within the first year, it became clear the company required additional space.


Outgrowing the Greenlake basement, Jonathan Pauls Fine Woodwork & Design expands into a warehouse facility located on Seattle's waterfront pier, adding additional square footage and machinery.


With a growing customer base and demand for larger projects, the company expands into a new facility in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, while also adding its first employee. With a larger production floor, the company begins taking on custom cabinetry projects while holding fine furniture standards.


Jonathan Pauls Inc. (JPI) is formed.


With increased demand for multi-step wood finishes, JPI adds a new spray booth and custom color mixing station for in house color development.


JPI expanded into our neighboring building, more than doubling production square footage.


Priding ourselves on the goal of producing all components in house, JPI adds custom veneering to our list of capabilities.

With the addition of a veneer guillotine, splicer, hot press, and wide belt sander, JPI is fully equipped to handle custom veneering
