About Manitowoc Carpentry & Woodwork LLC
Bill and Margaret Pauwels' goal is to make your home or business more beautiful, comfortable, and well organized by creating exactly what you want within your budget. Bill fabricates new wood parts for any and all antiques, especially agricultural machinery, and is willing to ship them anywhere in the United States. He will make and ship new humidors, jewelry boxes, and any other specialty woodwork creation. Bill enjoys making new wood parts for antique farm equipment, and repairing and restoring any wood antiques. He has worked on threshing machines, binders, tractors, oil pulls, rocking chairs, barn board tables, cribbage boards, made and restored many other pieces of machinery and household items.

Between ten years of interior carpentry construction at the most recognized custom luxury yacht builder in North America and over 20 years of experience installing high-end custom cabinets and casework, woodwork is truly Bill's specialty! 
At a local luxury yacht builder company, Bill advanced from a cabinetry/casework installer, to the team leader/coordinator developing intricate knowledge of how things function and work together. From hull construction to final finish work and delivery in multi-million dollar yacht, he continued to improve carpenter and cabinetry skills through projects such as modifying a pre-fabricated round staircase and creating unique areas and storage systems throughout the yachts.

Recently, Bill had the opportunity to restore a 1919 Advance Rumely wood threshing machine, do a cosmetic repair and repaint to the 1887 Rhode Island locomotive and do a partial log replacement on one of the buildings at Pinecrest Historical Village in Manitowoc, WI.

​Bill's hobby of antique farm equipment repair and demonstrating, has led to many overhauled projects of all types of older machinery. He currently holds the position of President of Mid-Lakes Rustic Iron, the local antique farm machinery club.

I, Margaret, am a past President of Service League of Manitowoc County and certified German and English Language Learner teacher. Currently, we both enjoy raising our young family here in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.
