When it comes to a quality product and quality people you can’t find a better crew. Dave and the crew have been in woodworking their entire lives. In addition to a great fatherly role model Dave passes on his traditional woodworking skills, work ethic, and morals to the crew. Watching these guys work is a treat, their internal strive for excellence and desire to produce a high quality product is evident in every board. Attention to detail and unparalleled quality control is simply in their blood. Our production crew are as good of people you’ll find anywhere, not just in their woodworking skills but as quality individuals themselves.

We have something really special when it comes to our custom door and staining crew. These guys hand rub, hand sand, hand carve, and hand craft every door and pre-finished piece of flooring. Old world artisan style craftsmanship has been handed down from generation to generation and these guys carry on the tradition. Every door is an original piece of artwork, seeing is believing. Countless hours of tedious handcrafting go into every piece of wood. These guys are the real deal, true Montana Artisans.

John has been producing custom cabinets the majority of his life. Handcrafted quality is obvious right down to the last dove tail drawer. Thomas works along side his father learning every trick of the trade to insure Artisan style woodworking will be passed on to the next generation. Old world quality can never be duplicated, seeing is believing. If we had to come up with a short description of Thomas it would be a hyper active squirrel on Red Bull with the most gentle, generous, and pure heart you’ll ever see. Weird analogy, but once you meet him you’ll totally agree.

Todd Yocum – Flooring, door, and cabinet sales manager
Todd does not want his picture on the internet so we found a very close resemblance. Todd grew up in the lumber industry, his family still currently owns a hardwood sawmill in Ohio. Just like many others Todd moved West with his family to explore the majestic and wild mountains of Montana. Todd’s knowledge and expertise is obvious from the first time you talk with him. Todd has more history and knowledge about flooring than just about anyone in Western Montana. He is a faithful and dedicated father and husband and enjoys nothing more than camping and hiking with his wife and 4 kids. Direct Line: 406.642.7118
