Our Story & Philosophy
Proprietors Donna Mazzamurro and Sue Genthner have been friends for over 35 years. Both of these women have developed and built their own businesses. Donna has mastered the craft of fine woodworking and Sue's expertise is in the customer service industry. Partnering in this endeavor, these two professionals offer quality products and exceptional service to a diverse Nantucket client base.
Donna Mazzamurro is a licensed contractor with over 25 years of experience in the building trades from frame to finish. Her attention to detail and fine craftsmanship is appreciated by both her new and longtime clients.
Sue Genthner has worked in the customer service industry in Nantucket for over 30 years. Her years in business on Nantucket have built strong relationships with both locals and seasonal visitors. Her involvement and commitment within the community are essential to her broad understanding of doing business on the island.
In 2009, Sue and Donna partnered and started a very successful property management company. It is through that business and the relationships built with clients that Nantucket Wood Design began. Donna has been doing special projects in the shop for their clients which have been extremely well received. They decided to bring their products to a wider audience and bring Donna back into the shop she loves.
The work presented on this site highlights the range of possibilities in style, design, and species of wood available. Donna and Sue look forward to creating something especially for you. Their unique home decor pieces can be purchased at one of their events, through the online shop, or by contacting them directly.
