Richard McMurray, a native Texan from Fort Worth, started his career working for a company that specialized in the installation of crown molding. He developed a love for the trade, and after a couple years he decided to start his own company. His two-man team specialized in architectural molding installation. His customers loved the quality of his work, and now most of his jobs come from repeat business and word of mouth.

Becoming a YouTube celebrity was not on his radar until one day in 2013, Richard recorded a short clip about 3-piece molding installation. He was hooked. That experience led to Richard creating his YouTube Channel, “Finish Carpentry TV.” The channel has since grown to over 100,000 subscribers and boasts millions and millions of views.
