Woodwright’s owner and craftsman, Michael Ray, has been involved in all aspects of the construction business with 40 years experience in the industry as a whole.
Over the years Michael developed a special love and passion for producing, from the design stage to finished construction, custom pieces of wood furniture and cabinetry of fine hardwood. That love and passion instilled the desire to establish a custom shop with the objective of taking the customer’s dreams and desires and turning those into reality by producing exactly the custom pieces the customer desires. Specifically in furniture and cabinetry design and production, Michael has 30 years experience and has produced numerous unique furniture pieces and cabinetry projects.
At Woodwright’s, we believe anything worth spending time and energy doing deserves our very best efforts. Everything we do is only justified by doing whatever it is with passion and with a devotion to doing it to the best of our ability. This is true in virtually all aspects of our lives including family, faith, and in what we are called to do in the workplace. There is a verse of scripture we do take to heart at Woodwright’s. Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men.” We believe the Lord certainly deserves our best.
For Michael Ray and for Woodwright’s, this all translates in the woodworking business to building the very highest quality products possible using the best construction methods as well as the highest quality materials. We simply do not believe in taking shortcuts. We use the highest quality hardwoods and hardware and use the most appropriate joinery method for each task.
Our goal is to produce furniture pieces that will be passed down from generation to generation with the highest quality to withstand the long haul. Furniture pieces should be heirlooms for future generations to enjoy and not just to fill a functional need for the here and now. That objective is kept in mind by Woodwright’s in every furniture piece we build and we also hold ourselves to the same standard in the cabinetry we produce as well.
At Woodwright’s, we have the privilege of being able to spend our working hours doing what we truly love to do. Finding your passion and pursuing it to the end is so necessary to realize your personal dreams and goals.
That certainly has been the case for us in building a business where we are able to take the dreams and desires of a customer and translate them into reality. The word “Custom” means freedom for the customer – freedom from being confined to what everyone else has or what they have seen in store displays or in their friends and neighbor’s kitchens and living rooms. Custom means, “If you can dream it, we can build it.”
The entire process from design to completion of construction is all about giving the customer exactly what they want. Our passion is precisely that. There is nothing more satisfying for us than being able, at the end of the day, to see the completion of that process and the reality of having given the customer precisely what they dreamed of from the start.
