Carpenter’s Fine Woodworking is a family-owned-and-operated business.
We are dedicated to the premise of creating quality products and providing
reliable customer service with integrity.
Carl Carpenter -the shop’s founder, owner, and operator- was born
and raised in Michigan, and he has lived in California since his early twenties.
Carl enjoys a great reputation among his industry peers for creativity,
uncompromising attention to detail, and problem-solving skills.
Carl has earned a well-deserved reputation for operating a shop that
gets the job done right.
Carl’s wife Lena joined the company full-time in 2002. She now manages the office, marketing department, and handles the programming of their CNC machines. You will also find her working side-by-side with Carl in the shop as needed.
Both their son’s Beau and Shane grew up helping out in their father’s
business. Their experience includes designing and building their own
electric guitar at age 15, a project that helped them to familiarize themselves
with many of the machines and woodworking techniques used today.
Beau, now raising a family of his own, went to become an electrician and
Shane has moved to Loveland, Colorado where he enjoys working as a finish carpenter.
Both of their guitar projects can be seen in the CNC portfolio.
We believe that our customers are,
and always will be,
the most important part of our business.
