The shop is the most important tool we have. It’s finely tuned to best accompany our workflow. The shop includes numerous tools to aid in the production of cabinets and woodwork. In addition to the main work areas, the shop also has a fire resistant spray room for applying finishes. Sealed off from the rest of the shop, the finish room maintains a clean environment with its negative pressure exhaust fans.
We are devoted to satisfying the needs of all of our customers through responsibility and collaborative work. We hope that every customer is content with the work that has been done and would gladly welcome us back to do more work.
In 2013, William Butler entered the Highland Springs Technical Center for Carpentry. It was here that he gained exposure and was afforded the opportunity to compete in the SkillsUSA Cabinetmaking contest. After winning the competition, he contacted the contest chairman and his future mentor Haley Pearsall. He trained with Haley for the national contest in Kansas City. Upon placing 13th in the country, he was offered a job in Haley’s shop where he apprenticed for a couple months.
In order to learn more and experience the remodeling side of the industry, he left Haley to work at a local remodeling firm for over a year. Eventually, after being frustrated trying to find high quality, reputable companies that shared his values, he officially opened William’s Handcrafted. In spring of 2017, he acquired the cabinet shop of his now retired mentor Haley.
Today, William and his associates continue to grow and build this company primarily through word of mouth and top quality work.
