St. Croix USVI Real Estate & Other Good Things

Woodworker in Paradise


dunigan_lead.jpgLove woodworking? Here’s your opportunity to own a local shop with a great history, top reputation and a solid income. Its founder, Jack Dunigan, is an enthusiast of the Arts & Crafts decorative arts movement of the early 20th century. His shop designs and builds fine custom and unique furnishings, often in the manner of these artisans. After many years Jack has decided to retire and is offering his business for sale. The asking price is $295,000 (update: price reduced further) including tools, inventory, current jobs, client lists, etc. Owner financing with only 25% down is an option. Balance can be in payments or a balloon payment or combination thereof. Will also consider trade for home/condo stateside. All offers will be considered.

The cover photo: 1949 Ford Pickup Truck. Jack restored this truck to original, show quality. It’s very special, and will not be part of the sale. He’s owned it for more than 35 years.

The details: Dunigan Designs is an architectural millwork shop offering high quality doors, windows, cabinetry, moldings, and furniture. They opened in their present facilities in April of 2005. Jack Dunigan, the owner, owned a shop in Arizona before relocating here. St. Croix is a unique business environment. The upper end of the economy is almost totally comprised of affluent statesiders who have homes here. Because there are very few places one can find top quality wood work here, Dunigan Designs has been able to capitalize on that end of the economy by offering exceptionally well-made components in a timely manner.
The location: 5400 sq ft leased facilities in easy to access business park near shopping center, freight forwarder, and major highway. Space includes large air conditioned office, a storage room, a finish spray room, a fully wired, complete Torit dust collection system, 4 roll-up doors, 2 restrooms, paved driveway and parking. 3 phase power is installed and operational.

  1. I am a hand surgeon and a workowoding enthusiast. I heard about the swastop technology 7 years ago but did not really learn about it or investigate it until today when i saw a patient that works with them. I literally have taken care of countless of tablesaw injuries/severe amputations. In my personal shop the one machine that I have most respect for is the table saw. After leraning about the sawstop, there is no way I will not purchase one for my shop. Trust me, it is not worth taking the chance. There is no substitute for safe techniques but accidents simply do happen. A new table saw can $500-$600 without the technology and another $1000 with it, that is the best $1000 you can ever spend if you lose your focus for just a second while using a table saw.
