Signature Woodworks is a Detroit based custom cabinet and furniture shop.  We specialize in custom kitchens, but as our portfolio shows, we offer a full array of custom millwork, built-ins, architectural work, and interiors to meet our clients’ needs.  We take great pride in offering not only craftsmanship of the highest quality, but a one on one relationship with our clients.  We have no salespeople, so whether with a homeowner or an architect, we work closely with our clients to design and execute our projects in order to meet or exceed their expectations.  We also do all of our own installations, so we can work directly with our clients from the first meeting, right to the completion of their projects.

      At Signature Woodworks, all of our projects are custom built from raw materials.  We do not outsource or purchase any prefabricated components.  In doing this, we can offer our clients the greatest flexibility in both material and design.  We hand select all of our solid woods and veneers.  We not only grain match our tabletops and door panels, but we carefully choose all of our drawer fronts, door rails and stiles, and cabinet frames to create the most pleasing and balanced piece possible.  By doing this, we set ourselves apart from any prefabricated work and many custom shops.  We have found that careful attention to proportion, balance, symmetry, and wood grain produces the quality of work that even the most discerning architects, designers, and homeowners require.

      Signature Woodworks has been in business for over twenty years.  For seventeen of those years, I worked as a one-man shop.  I wasn’t able to find an employee that produced work to my standards.  I am now happily a two-man shop.  This has given me the opportunity to take on larger projects and expand the range of products that I can offer my clients without sacrificing the quality that I am known for.  With over 50 years of combined experience in cabinet making, stair building, custom furniture, and architectural millwork, Signature Woodworks can design, build and install any of your custom woodworking projects.

      Please take a moment to view our online portfolio and contact us if you are interested in any of the pieces shown here, or discussing your own project.
