Who We Are

We started Cannon Hill in 2018 to provide designers and homeowners in New England and beyond with custom furniture of the highest quality. Now our growing team of skilled craftsmen upholds that intention with every piece we build.

Our Team

Zachary Hardoon


Zack grew up in Boston, and attended the Roxbury Latin School and then the University of Pennsylvania. He brought experience as a teacher, carpenter, Appalachian Trail through-hiker, and contractor to Cannon Hill’s 2018 founding, and now manages all aspects of the company. Now, Zack lives in Hyde Park with his wife, son, and dog, Moose. After building over 600 tables with our talented team, he’s especially proud of the response that Cannon Hill has gotten from the Boston design community.

Sam O’Leary


One of Cannon Hill’s founders and a lifelong woodworker, Sam graduated from Arlington High School and then Wentworth Institute of Technology, with a degree in Industrial Design. Sam designed and built his first woodshop in his parents’ basement, and began working in the trade after seeing some of the finest furniture in the world during a college semester in Germany. Sam serves as our Head of Design and Shop Manager, designing, drawing, and creating CAD for everything we build; he excels in highly technical projects.

Nick Mamakos


Born and raised in Natick, MA, Nick attended Massasoit Community College for art before moving to Los Angeles, where he began his career as a woodworker. When Nick moved back to Boston in 2008 he enrolled in the North Bennet Street School’s Cabinet and Furniture Making program; since then, Nick has worked throughout Metro Boston in various furniture and high-end carpentry outfits. He joined Cannon Hill in 2021, and has proven himself as one of our most capable builders.

Mark Kilcher


Mark has been a woodworker ever since his father taught him how to use tools as a young child. He graduated Westford Academy and then enlisted in the United States Coast Guard, where he spent four years at USCG Station Woods Hole. Since then, Mark has worked as a linesman, a carpenter, and an IT technician. When he got the chance to join Cannon Hill, allowed Mark to turn a passion into his profession, and he’s risen to be our Assistant Shop Manager. Mark enjoys our most difficult builds the most.

Kevin Mullin


Kevin grew up in Wellesley, MA, and graduated the Roxbury Latin School and then Boston College. He and Zack came up together on high-end job sites in Massachusetts and Connecticut, and he eventually began doing carpentry subcontracting work on his own. After helping out at Cannon Hill off and on over the years and assisting on the shop build-out, Kevin joined the team full-time in 2021. He now splits his time at Cannon Hill between the shop floor and the administrative side.

Isaac Canney


Isaac grew up outside of Boston, building and remodeling fine homes with his family’s design-build company. He graduated from Hampshire College, where he focused on an interdisciplinary study of architecture and sustainable design. After returning to the family business, he attended the  North Bennet Street School’s Cabinet and Furniture Making program. Isaac joined the Cannon Hill team in 2021, and he lives in Jamaica Plain with his wife, their two kids, and dog Sadie.

Dave Mitchell


Dave began woodworking growing up in central New York, and hasn’t stopped since. In college he studied literature, geology, and education, traveled to Central America, worked at outdoor adventure camps, and found himself at a small, high-end woodworking outfit during the summers. Furnituremaking became his favorite hobby during over a decade as a secondary school teacher, and since joining Cannon Hill, Dave’s worked on hundreds of pieces and led dozens of builds.  

Our Process

Our Process

Clients approach us with a design in need of realization, a problem in need of solving, or an idea for something special – and sometimes all three. We have the experience and expertise to know how to get from any starting point to a finished piece. Sketches, CAD, samples and conversation all move us towards a finished product you might not even have been able to envision at the start.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Zack and his team at Cannon Hill Woodworking to bring our dream dining table to life. From the initial design phase and wood selection (we went with maple) to the final delivery, their professionalism, attention to detail, and impeccable communication stood out. I’ve always wanted a table from Cannon Hill, and now that I have one, it has exceeded every expectation. I look forward to many years ahead enjoying the company of family and friends around this beautiful piece. If you’re in the market for artisanal woodworking that merges artistry and craftsmanship with functionality, look no further. Highly recommend!
I worked with Zack and his team on our custom dining room and matching coffee tables. We wanted a dining table that could comfortably seat 8 adults, but expand to seat 14! We evaluated all different shapes and configurations and finalized on a rectangle that expanded on each end. We were also able to match the wood for the tables a with wood railing we have in the room. Both the dining room and coffee tables are extremely sturdy and beautiful. We are looking forward to enjoying these and hopefully passing them down for generations to come! Highly recommend Cannon Hill Woodworking for their quality, experience and professionalism - and willingness to…
My husband and I recently worked with Zack and his team to design a dining table for our new home. Zack was very thorough in walking us through our options and considerations, which we really appreciated! We are so happy to have a table that will last us decades and would highly recommend working with them.
Zack at Cannon Hill was great to work with, and he and his team delivered an exceptional custom table. Zack worked closely with my partner and me to determine the right sizes for the table with and without extensions, the overall base design, the type of wood, and the finishes. He explained the trade offs of design decisions, the price points for all options, and the upkeep work required for multiple finish options so that we went in with full context on our decision/ chose options that fit our space and our lifestyle. The result is a table that fits our space perfectly, and works well with the existing wood fixtures in…
