Custom Cabinets on Lake Oconee

Our Story

begins in 1988, when Sean Q. Gallagher left college and entered the building industry.  Sean is a native of Madison, Georgia and a graduate of Morgan County  High School. He attended Georgia College in Milledgeville where he  majored in Art History. As a young, married, starving artist, he settled  into the construction industry to feed his growing family. As he became versed in the trades, he began to help the clients  of  his employers solve design issues on the fly, leading him to focus on  residential design after a decade gaining experience in every facet of residential  building. 

In 1997

 Sean quit his full time job and began operating as an independent kitchen and  bath design expert under the moniker "Sean Gallagher Design."  Sean quickly became the go-to designer for discerning homeowners because  of his ability to draw outside conventional lines, and his willingness  to incorporate every feasible idea of his very demanding clientele.  


Coupled with his experience in other trades, his desire to create unique  items and spaces set him apart from the copy-cat crowd.

As he honed in on  specializing in kitchen and bath design, he continued to draw from the  experience garnered by painting with a broader brush. Not only does he  consider the needs of the homeowner, but he also is attentive to working  closely with the architect, contractor, decorator, and other trades.         

Dovetails Joinery

had its inception in 2012. At that time, in an effort to have more control of the fabrication of his unique and  detailed design work, Sean purchased Town and Country Custom Cabinets on Lake Oconee . In 2014 he reorganized his operation as "Dovetails  Joinery, llc." The company has quickly become known as Lake Oconee's  premier source for Kitchen Design and fine, heirloom quality custom cabinetry and furniture  pieces. As word has spread, the company continues to install Custom Cabinets in Madison, GA and travels to new  locations to service the needs of their growing client base.
