Schierl Woodworking, LLC. He enjoyed working with his hands and built many beautiful pieces of furniture that are sprinkled over the entire state of Wisconsin and beyond. \n\nTraveling throughout the country always brought Paul joy, but he especially appreciated leaving the cold Wisconsin winters by ‘snow birding’ in Texas.
