Custom Joinery & Interior Design

Founder and Master Craftsman of Seaside Joinery, John Lappas has had a love of working with his hands since childhood. John spent the first 10 years of his career strategically working with the best tradesmen and cabinet making companies in Sydney. Learning from old Italian craftsmen who did much of their joinery work by hand.

During his time in Sydney, John worked on large scale commercial joinery, as well as complete fit outs of high spec projects for law firms, hotels, and banks.

His final role in Sydney saw him working on top end residential fit outs for architects and designers. It was here he was introduced to smart design technologies that maximise space and problem solve functional solutions for clients.


The focus for seaside joinery is support and communication to maintain that no detail is missed while giving the client the full package of design, communication, CAD plans with relevant information, multiple site visits and walk-throughs, highly detailed quotes to maintain that all elements of the design have been included.

Seaside Joinery is a small family business that delivers sophisticated design solutions like a large firm. Every aspect of Seaside Joinery has been developed by John and is overseen by himself or Brenna. They value creating a happy environment for their team to thrive in and deliver their best work.
