good deal of his time "in the field". Steve has over
a decade of field experience in earthwork, concrete, carpentry and masonry.
Steve has also been "hands-on" in project management and construction quality
control for well over 15 years. He also brings over a decade of

Jim Doerre, Nelson MillWorks Foreman|
When it comes to millwork, there is no one that we know of in three
states that has the experience, the knowledge, and the ability of
Jim has been with Peter Nelson Construction for 37 years. 28
of those years have been spent on the business end of table saws, band saws,
sanders, planers, joiners, and just about everything else that has teeth.
Jim received formal carpentry education and a degree at Western Wisconsin
Technical College, and has been teaching furniture making classes for the last
25 years at the same school he once graduated from. Furniture
and cabinetry making is truly Jim's first love, although he has decades of
experience in plastics, laminates, or any other solid surface that can be cut
and shaped. Jim and the team at Nelson MillWorks are some of the last
commercial millwork professionals who can still perform (and prefer) mortise and
tenon work over butt joints or pocket screws.
