now hiring


The Painter works in the fabrication shop to carefully apply finishes to our museum products.

The candidate must have a critical eye and outstanding attention to detail.

Most days are spent sanding parts and applying finishes either by hand or with a spray gun. Some products have painted finishes; some are stained. Generally, a clear topcoat is applied. Hand and random orbital sanding are both required before finishing and between coats. Sometimes assembly of finished components is needed. You’ll also spend time neatly packing up completed orders to be shipped out once the finishing is complete. Overall, you can probably expect to spend 1/3 time sanding, 1/3 time painting, and 1/3 on related tasks.

This is a physically and mentally demanding job and requires very strong attention to detail--we work with museums almost exclusively and strive for museum-quality in all that we create!
