As a result of COVID and an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible, I am not accepting on-site remodel and carpentry projects at this time.

Projects for practically-built, commissioned and custom woodworking pieces, furniture repair/restoration/upcycling/makeover, or any other sort of creative project you can dream up that can be completed in my workshop, and delivered in a “socially distant” manner, are gladly accepted.

Feel free to submit via contact form, email, text, or message me on social media about your project—rough sketches and partially formed ideas are always welcome, we’ll figure it out.

About ME

My name is Shawn Finley and I am from the awesome little mountain town of Bend, Oregon where I spent over a decade of my professional career in sales and customer service, working for a wonderful company in the Outdoor Industry.

I grew up helping my Dad and Grandfathers working on all manner of home and farm improvements in my spare time, and when life brought my wife and me our little boy, and a move to be closer to her family in Kansas City, I decided to open the new chapter by working toward a career in home improvement—I wasn’t entirely sure what that meant for me, but knew working on houses was always something I really enjoyed, and that I wanted to do SOMETHING in the construction industry that would give me satisfaction and joy, and would be helpful to the people of my community. 

Three years later, having worked my way up through the industry from the starting point of a “helper” and having been exposed to virtually every aspect of home-building and construction, I am now the proud owner and sole operator of Noble and Oak, LLC. I place great importance in my craftsmanship and my dedication to the satisfaction of my clients, and enjoy finding creative solutions for a variety of projects that are practical, functional, and visually appealing. 

My projects and advice have been featured on Apartment Therapy, DIY Network, and

I am happy to serve clients in the Kansas City area and surrounding communities.

What THE Name Means

“Noble and Oak” primarily represents the two key principles I strive to maintain throughout my life, and my business. To uphold “Noble” ideals and values in my intentions and actions every day, in everything I do, from administrative dealings, to the projects I complete, to my interactions with clients, suppliers, and other contractors; and to consistently uphold that commitment to Noble principle, as stalwartly as an “Oak” tree.

Noble Fir Trees are native to the mountains of the Pacific Northwest where I am from, and one of the first things I noticed when I moved to Kansas City and immediately loved, were the old farms with giant old Oak trees standing proudly in front of hundred-year-old homes. “Noble and Oak” reminds me of where I am from, and where I am now, and the journey that brought me here.


Tell me a little about your project. If you don’t have a budget yet, that’s okay, just enter “none.”
