About Jonathan Scholl
Jonathan is a lifelong resident of Chester County, Pennsylvania, and considers himself fortunate to have lived in historic homes over the years – a 1768 stone farmhouse, an 1850s row house, and his current residence, a new home built within the walls and structure of a 1906 barn. These homes have strengthened his interest in the classic designs and fine craftsmanship of each respective era.
Jonathan has a degree in mechanical engineering and early career experience in precision metal fabrication. A love and appreciation of fine woodworking led him to accept a three-year apprenticeship with a custom woodworking shop in Germany. Upon his return to the United States, he worked as a senior project manager at a custom millwork shop where he coordinated highly visible projects for customers such as the Smithsonian Institution, the United States Naval Academy, The Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware, and developers with a variety of upmarket real estate projects.
Over the years, Jonathan’s passion for woodworking and design never waned. In 2005, he decided to bring that well cultivated passion to life by combining his lifelong experience and professional expertise to create Dovetail Group, LLC. Today, he strives to achieve nothing less than exceptional results for every client. He hopes his clients also seek the same outcome.
