Hi, my name's John Parilla!

I'm the guy behind parillaworks. I love making things out of wood with original designs and interesting techniques. I was born and raised in Coral Springs, Florida and earned a B.S. in Materials Science from the University of Florida. I spent a few years working in Virginia but moved back to south Florida to start parillaworks in 2016. 

I've completed two Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns selling my unique bandsaw boxes. After finishing those campaigns I began taking custom orders in addition to opening my Etsy shop. In early 2017 I started the parillaworks Youtube channel If you're interested in a custom piece or have any questions, please visit my Contact page or email me at
