The Process

Successfully fusing the technology of today with traditional woodcraft of the past.


With experience, talent, and a well-equipped shop, Prairie Woodworks offers its customers complete design services. Beginning with a sketch or an idea, designs are reviewed and modified until approved by the customer.


The designs are then built with the highest quality materials with great attention to craftsmanship and detail. In the finishing shop, our craftsmen will match stains or provide any number of custom finishes to the product.


Once completed Prairie Woodworks offers a full installation. Our craftsmen are always striving for a finished product, whether it's a piece of furniture to a complete custom kitchen, in which they and their customer can take pride.


The many projects successfully completed by Prairie Woodworks in the past years are quite varied in scale and type. Commissions have ranged from residential/historical and commercial work to projects for the business and profesisonal community.

Kitchens, Built-In Cabinetry, Tables, Chairs, Beds, Staircases, & More!


What Others Are Saying...

  • "Ross, Thank you for the fine work you did on my father’s chest of drawers. I’m so pleased with the results, and so is my mother. This is very special for us to have finished. Please enjoy one of my hand-made cups as a token of my appreciation."


  • “Ross and Prairie Woodworks built us an expandable mahogany dining room table and chair set designed after the dining table in the famous Gamble House by architects Greene & Greene. We are still stunned at the craftsmanship, and know it will be a family heirloom for generations.” Read more from Holly's blog on the making of this project by clicking on the names below.
