The WoodWorks Story

WoodWorks Chicago was started in 1998 and since that time we have been designing and fabricating hand-crafted furniture for residential & commercial applications. Most of our furniture is constructed using domestic & exotic hardwoods. Our specialty is producing pieces for customers who are unable to find what they are looking for in retail establishments. Our furniture consists of custom pieces specifically sized for a particular location in our customer’s home or business. Because of this, WoodWorks Chicago is a unique business, enabling our clients to help design the furniture we build. You can select the wood species, dimensions, hardware, and help in every aspect of the design process. We in turn, create the perfect piece for your needs. Each piece is hand finished using a variety of varnishes, oils, wax combinations, and sprayed lacquers.

In addition to Designing & Fabricating Hand-Crafted Furniture, Bill has been teaching Furniture classes at Columbia College Chicago since 2012 and Woodworking classes at the Evanston Art Center, in Evanston Illinois since 2016.
