Custom Furniture & Woodworking Studio


Feedback from customers who have commissioned work from Craig.

Finding Craig for our cabinet project was a wonderful blessing. After searching for months and being disappointed by less than enthusiastic craftsmen, we found Craig who immediately knew what we were looking for. He took the time to understand our concept and was able to translate it into a beautiful creation that is now a family heirloom. His craftsmanship is impeccable and the cabinet turned out exactly as we had hoped.  At every turn, he kept us informed on his progress on our project, and we loved the boundless enthusiasm that he brought to this task. He provided the right product at the right price, and was simply a joy to work with. Craig has our strongest possible recommendation for any woodworking project, and can be counted on to bring your vision to reality. Many thanks, Craig!  - Bob and Cathy K.

We contracted with Craig at WoodZest to restore our nearly 100-year old front entry door and storm door, both of which were weathered badly. The project had several challenges, including a unique rounded top to our entry, and the fact that nothing in our home is square to anything else after decades of settling and shifting. We have spoken with numerous contractors over the years, and none was willing to take up the challenge. Craig took immense pride in the entire project, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. He determined that our main entry door was structurally solid, and needed only a good refinishing. The storm door was well past its prime, and he custom-built for us a beautiful replacement that fits like a glove.

Beyond the woodwork, Craig took great care of all the mechanical aspects of the project as well. He disassembled and rebuilt our original lock set, which was pretty gummed up and sticky over the years, and now operates like new. He helped us find quality hardware for all the knobs and other elements that needed replacing. Further, he found and worked with another craftsman who was able to restore the stained glass window in the entry door, which had some broken pieces and solder joints.

At the end of it all, we have a front entry that looks better than the day it was first installed, and is more energy efficient as well. We can't recommend WoodZest highly enough

As a decorative painter, I design and paint custom children's step stools in animal shapes. I commission Craig Jentz at Woodzest to build them for me, which he does with precise, quality craftsmanship.The finished step stools are always built exactly to the designs that I give him and he also makes helpful suggestions for choosing the most appropriate wood. I highly recommend Craig for anyone looking for a unique, beautifully made piece of furniture. - Jackie G.
