About Original WoodCraft
As our world shrinks, so do many of our living spaces. My primary vision is to provide compact furnishing solutions that improve peoples quality of life. My dad started me in his cabinet shop at the age 8 in 1969 when he put a broom in my hand and taught me how to sweep. Within a few years Kinney Gray Custom Cabinets became Kinney Gray and Sons as my little brother Rick joined the crew. I spent evenings, weekends and summers as his apprentice for the next 10 years. Dad was incredibly diligent to instill his unshakable belief that “If it’s worth doing it’s worth doing right”. I learned not by book but hands-on experience in actual production and I am blessed to have been apprenticed by an Old School Master Woodworker. I eventually parlayed my experience into a Custom Log and Timberframe Home Building and Developing career. I spent most of the 2000s custom building new and refit Yacht Interiors.
Original Woodcraft is my most recent endeavor, in part to simplify my life so I may more fully enjoy my adult children and grandchildren. I represent over 100 years of traditional American Craftsmanship as expressed through the legacy of my forefathers. In keeping with that tradition, I sign each piece personally after having created it by hand just for you. I am dedicated to diligently provide these products based on the Gray Legacy and a Creed founded on a commitment to function melded with beauty in design and the delivery of 5-Star quality in workmanship to every client. I will always endeavor to Under-Promise and Over-Deliver in all aspects of my services to enhance my customers buying experience and assure my 5-Star standing in this industry.
I am the third of four generations of Master Woodworkers in our 100 year Legacy of Traditional American Craftsmanship. I personally control all aspects of production from material selection, milling, finishing through final assembly and sign each piece personally after having created it just for you. I believe my work to be above industry standards for fit, finish and function. You should expect that I will personally deliver 5-Star craftsmanship in every aspect of your piece.
