What people are saying about our

Custom Kitchen and Hand Made Custom Furniture

R. Poole

Google does not have enough stars for the work Buddy and Luke produce out of their shop. They walked us through the design process and made multiple changes until we had things just right.

They had great ideas and their expertise/experience was extremely helpful as our laundry room had many challenges to maximize our storage. Next time I will call them in before I start my job to get their design input.

They do more than just cabinets - they built a special vanity and cabinet for the half bath we put in the laundry room as well. The cost was not that much more than the quotes we got from the semi-custom sellers and the design and cabinet quality is far superior. You do get what you pay for. They were true to their word on cost and install time frame. If you don't call them to at least quote your job, you are missing out. Here are some pictures of our laundry room.
Pictures do not do the cabinets justice because of the room lighting and perhaps my camera skills.

 I just wanted to let you know how much we love the hand made custom furniture dining table. It exceeds our expectations. You and your son did beautiful work and our family will use it for a long time. Thank you. 

 Speaking of our table, it has changed the way we end our evenings. Each night, we sit together as a family - sometimes just the 4 of us, sometimes with my parents, and sometimes with my parents and my sister and her kids. Thankfully, the table fits us all beautifully. The bench is long and sturdy enough to seat us all comfortably without the little ones slipping off. It is, by far, my favorite piece of furniture in the house. It still exceeds my expectations. We truly cannot thank you enough. 


 Saw these pieces in person. Spectacular, one-of-a-kind, heirloom-quality table and bench. Brilliant workmanship on top, inside, and beneath.

When Buddy builds your custom kitchen cabinets they will be beautiful to the eye and built to last a lifetime. We found him willing to design to our needs, attentive to detail, and insistent on the best materials and techniques. We enjoyed working with him and are still pleased with the work he did for us.

When the granite man smiles broadly when told whose work will support his, you know you made a good choice. And when you see the invoice, you know you made the right choice.

Brassfield Custom Wood Works is the best in building and designing everything from custom designed office desks to remodeling bathroom vanity. I have worked with Buddy and Luke Barbour for the past 2 years and I highly recommend them for any custom woodwork projects. They designed custom cabinets and a desk for my master bedroom as well as rebuilt the mantle for my fireplace. The work is amazing! Luke Barbour designed a custom desk for my home office built especially for my needs.
They are professional and take pride in the craftsmanship of their work. I recommend them without reservation.

Buddy designed, created and installed painted shelving for our home library. The overall 14'x 8' L-shaped components have adjustable shelves and a slide-out reading shelf that Buddy thought of and designed. The finish is beveled black lacquer, and it, like the entire shelf unit is beautiful.

It exceeded our expectations, and we were entirely pleased with the professional and accommodating way which Buddy approached our requests from beginning to end. Not only will we certainly want to hire him for future carpentry projects, but we are very pleased to highly recommend his services. A true craftsman.

After feeling disconnected with an architect and two well-known cabinet/furniture makers, I ran across Brassfield Custom Wood works.

Buddy was the first one to truly understand my fuzzy design ideas and my needs. He designed and built a very unusual bed/dresser/bookcase piece for a space-challenged small bedroom. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for and believe me, you can't find something like that in stores... at any price.

Buddy's price was reasonable and the custom craftsmanship was superior. Buddy is not just a wood worker, he's a solution deliverer.
We will be working together again.

Just wanted you to know how pleased we are with the cedar toy box for my grand daughter and the hope chest for my daughter. When I first cut the trees off the farm, dried the rough cut boards for four years, I never dreamed that the end product would be so beautiful. You have truly built a family heirloom that will be passed down for generations to come.

 Thanks Tim Warrington

We have used Brassfield Custom Wood works twice now. Both times we have been very pleased with the work and with the professionalism Buddy practices.

BTW: The tasks/jobs we requested be done were not simple tasks.

  On behalf of the school of medicine we would like to thank you for your beautiful work on our new Aesculapius display case.

The staff being used annually in our Hippocratic Oath ceremony held in Duke Chapel for graduation. It will be nice to have this stored for safe keeping throughout the year and on display. The pictures themselves should be reference enough, but feel free to use us as a reference in the future.

Wilson Bar

I had the pleasure of working with Buddy and Luke at Brassfield Custom Wood Works on the cherry bar and hutch that you can view on their website. From the beginning their input was invaluable, I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted and they were able to see it with me and make it real. They are very personable and easy to work with and the level of craftsmanship they both possess is impressive. From the attention to detail in picking out the wood and facing the grain to the added touches of the walnut inlays created a finished product superior to what I had originally envisioned. The bar top with the makore inlay was a labor of love by Luke, the book matching of the grain is stunning and it had to be perfect before he would call it finished. Every time I go downstairs I appreciate having worked with Buddy and Luke and everyone that comes to our home is amazed by this truly one of a kind piece of what I call art. About a year later I asked Luke to create a one of a kind dart board. I just gave him the agreed upon payment and said surprise me, that's how much I grew to trust these guys. Of course it turned out great and matches the bar and hutch perfectly with the same attention to detail. When you are considering any project with the words custom and wood in the description do yourself a big favor and reach out to Buddy and Luke to discuss your plans and utilize their expertise.
