Dumpster door inspires Powelton makeover

JOHN JUNIUS TAYLOR, a second-generation cabinetmaker and woodworker in Powelton Village, was walking down Hamilton Street near 35th two years ago, when he saw a beat-up Victorian door in a dumpster.

Back in 2007, Taylor purchased the shuttered Mount Ephraim Christian Church on Lancaster Avenue near 38th Street and turned it into a workshop, where he and fellow-woodworker Don Sullivan make custom cabinetry and fine-art display furniture.
