About HCW

Henige's Custom Woodworking is a fully licensed & insured company that began in 1992 as an interior finish carpentry business working in new homes from 1000 to 10,000 square feet. While honing the skills necessary to achieve fine wood worker status, owner Mitchell Henige (Mitch) opened a shop to produce many of the details that were not available through local sources such as curve moldings, stair parts, and custom built-ins.  As new home construction slowed, he made the decision to equip his shop with the machinery to manufacture cabinets and cabinet parts.

"Today, as a fine cabinetry and woodworking company, I am proud to say we are able to be almost totally self sufficient, producing most parts that we use in house and; therefore, eliminating outsourcing, which helps us control all aspects of the project," Mitch says.  "We offer advice and components for the do-it -yourself people, full turn key projects from design through construction, to final cleanup and anything between. As always, we strive to be on schedule and on budget every time. Let us help you love your home."


Henige's Custom Woodworking (HCW) is a full service woodworking company specializing in fine custom cabinetry and components, custom moldings and details, stair parts and complete staircases. We also offer matching of existing cabinetry and finishes. At HCW we will take your project from initial design through final clean up. We can also supply ready to assemble (RTA) cabinetry finished or unfinished for your assembly and installation.


Although our customers come from all walks of life, from farmers and trades people to doctors, lawyers, and other professionals, they all tend to have one thing in common: they all have an eye for quality and value.  They appreciate a well thought out project, well made products built not only for their ascetics but also for their function and durability. From rustic cottage cabinetry to uber elegant and detailed whole room projects, our work is suited to any style or decor.


HCW uses only the finest materials available.  All of our hard and soft woods come from TRUSTED local sources to ensure they are properly dried and stored to eliminate warping.  Columbia Forest Products Carb 1 compliant plywoods are made without dangerous formaldehyde glues that escape as gasses into the air of your home.  Sherwin Williams supplies all of our finishing supply needs from our stains, pigmented finishes (paint) and custom glazes, to the top coat of formaldehyde free conversion varnish. These suppliers are a very important part of HCW and in turn, they give us the confidence that we can supply our clients with a superior product on schedule and on budget every time.
