Henige’s Custom Woodworking is the best! Mitch Henige is a true artist of cabinet making. His attention to detail and work ethic are a rarity. We were so impressed with a kitchen he did for a friend and thrilled when he was able to fit us in his schedule for our kitchen renovation last year. In addition to making the custom cabinets he was our project manager and contractor for everything, including: plumbing, electric, floor refinishing, tile, granite and painting. We were able to leave for vacation with full confidence and trust in Mitch to complete the job while we were away. We came home to a kitchen we absolutely love! Fantastic! Then on to our master bath, just finished this month to Mitch’s same impeccable standards. Again, we were able to be away while the job was completed. Spectacular! We recommend Henige’s Custom Woodworking 100%!Read More

Mitch Henige is a superior craftsman. Our new build kitchen and bath was beyond expectations. The contractors who installed our appliances said they have never seen PERFECT square in cupboard alignment. Trustworthy, timely, friendly demeanor, are among many of his character qualities. The cabinetry itself is stunning. Every time someone new comes into our home, they run their hands over the cupboards. They are the standout in our new home. You can't go wrong with choosing this cabinet maker.Read More

I can’t say enough about the quality of the cabinet s, materials, and hardware that Mitch Henige on the cabinet s he designs. The cabinets have many features that are standard that others do not . Doors ,draws all adjustable to make a perfect kitchen plus under mounted lighting which is recessed instead of the cheap under mounted fluorescent strip lights. Mitch was spot on time frame building cabinet s and installation. Can’t say enough only cabinet maker we will use for future kitchen s.Read More

I cannot say enough about the professionalism and quality beyond my expectations with Mitch Henige . He was realistic on deadlines and met them all. I asked him to work with reclaimed wormy chestnut wood that had been pulled from an old house and it was questionable as to whether it would even work.....within 4 days of taking home samples he sent me a photo of the most beautiful cabinet ever - again, beyond my expectations. After that, it was full steam ahead. His knowledge of the mechanics of the type of cabinetry and "look" I was after taught me much about utilizing the actual space in each drawer.....we were able to customize many to suit my specific dishes/pans......we installed plugs inside certain cabinets so I only have to open a door , pull the small kitchen appliance out , use it and slide it back more carrying heavy blenders/mixers! He also custom painted my cool hood fan and matched to the toe kicks and kitchen is a dream come true! I am a busy real estate broker and see many lovely kitchens but mine is the best!Read More

This man's work was so good, we actually decided to have him do the entire job for us, frames and doors as well as drawer boxes and fronts. It was worth the drive to meet with him.Read More

Mitch Henige did an awesome job building and installing a pantry cupboard to match 15 year old cupboards in our log home. We can't say enough how easy he was to work with, how quickly he completed the job and cleaned everything up, and how happy we are with the excellent quality and price of the cupboard. Mitch also cut a matching shelf for another cupboard and fixed a broken door at no additional cost. We will definitely have him back for future projects! Thank you Mitch for this perfect and much needed extra storage space!Read More

Henige Custom Woodworking did a phenomenal job on our cabinets! Upon contacting Mitch about constructing cabinets for our kitchen, he showed an immediate interest in wanting to help design the cabinets I've been waiting years to have! His suggestions on color pallets to match the granite were spot on. Mitch made a recommendation to use drawers that pull open instead of doors with shelves underneath the granite; this allows your to utilize all of the space, and I love it! He pays close attention to detail which is evident is his work, and designs specifically to what you want. Mitch is very professional and timely. For any custom woodworking that you might need, he's your guy!Read More

I recently did a woodworking project and needed some wood planed and a bit of advice. The man at my local lumberyard gave me Mitch Henige's name. What a wonderful experience it has been. Friendly, knowledgeable and fantastic woodworking equipment. I saw some of his cabinetry and asked him to put a finish on the baby cradle I had made for my new grandson-to-be. Great job, very reasonable costs and a nice man to boot. I don't think you will meet a better person. Richard Kruse Flushing, MIRead More

We were looking for a custom sofa table. Heard about Mitch through a friend and saw his reviews on We met with Mitch and he was very thorough and sketched to dimension the sofa table we wanted built. The product and service was perfect. I would highly recommend his services for custom woodwork.Read More

Thank you Mitch for creating our gorgeous wood bar top! Your customer service and craftsmanship are over the top! We could not be happier with how this turned out!Read More

We contacted Mitch Henige to see if he would be willing to construct a wood counter in our Victorian home. He was knowledgeable about the special requirements of a wood counter, did additional research, and recommended inch-thick oak. Because we wanted the counter to match the existing wood in the house, we wanted it slightly distressed, and he invited us to his workshop to distress it ourselves with his guidance and tools, making the piece even more valuable to us personally. He made a custom stain to our liking. Mitch Henige is, by far, the most pleasant contractor we have ever hired. He is a true craftsman and artisan and expresses joy and pride in his work. He was very kind to his assistant who was here for the install. It took about six months from original query to final install, and it was well worth it. I could not recommend him more highly, and if/when we need more custom woodwork done in our home, he will be our first call.Read More

What a wonderful exciting experience! Planning the details of everything went so well, the outcome is far more beautiful than we could ever imagine. A dream come true. We met with Mitch many time at our home to talk about a plan of attack. First was a rough draft followed by many more meetings, changing the layout, sizes of cabinets, lighting, electrical, where to put glass in, handles, color of cabinets. It was very helpful for us going right to his shop to see the whole process from the style of door , trim, crown molding, type of wood, the fun accessories to put inside of cabinets. We picked a oak wood (white) as the main color and grey was the accent in the gains. The first grey was not a great match, so Mitch tried another grey and bingo prefect. Also he gave us a large sample of a painted door, which made picking out our other accessories much easier. Through it all we where able to contact him with many questions and concerns. Believe me we had alot!! Giving us the estimate of each individual cabinet and the final cost was within the first estimate. He gave us a date of when installing and was right here on that date. Mitch and his two assistants were very conscientious of installation and making all the final details came together. Also making sure nothing was damage to the houzz through the process. Clean up was done throughout the installing. If you want a true professional and a awesome job he's the man!Read More

Henige's Custom Woodworking does beautiful work. We loved our bathroom vanity they built so much we had them build our basement wet bar for us. It turned out better than we could have pictured it. Mitch is very easy to work with. He took the time to work on the cabinet layout, style and color till it was just what we wanted. They get and A + from us. Loved recieving his calls on the progress of the cabinets and what his time line was for finishing them and wanting to know our progress on when we would be ready for him to install them. If i need more work done I would hire Henige's again. Great Job!Read More

I was building a new home and looked at kitchen cabinets at the big box stores and then I heard about Henige:s Custom Woodworking. Mitch was able to offer me more choices for less money. He was a delight to work with and after about nine months in my new home I am still receiving compliments on my beautiful cabinets I know that I made the right choice and have referred him to several people already.Read More

Our Mitch Henige Experience: Several years back, our daughter had custom cabinets made by Mitch. I said if I ever had a need for kitchen cabinets I wanted his craftsmanship. In 2013, we hired Mitch to build our dream kitchen and he really did a knockout job! Mitch and his crew delivered on time and he always stuck to his word for cost. We would highly recommend him to anyone...without any reservations.Read More

I hired Mitch and his carpenters to help me with a large custom home I designed and built for a client that I have been working with for several years. The trim and millwork detailing in the home required the skills and tools of a seasoned woodworker who could collaborate and and contribute to the design as we worked through the construction process. Mitch's professionalism, attention to detail, stellar communication skills, resourcefulness and dedication to his craft are unparalleled and extremely difficult to find in this industry. I credit the overall success of the project on my relationship with Henige's Custom Woodworking and look forward to working with them in the future.Read More

Mr. Hengie's work is excellent. We had him build an oak China cabinet that then had to be recessed into the dining room wall. He pays attention to details, listens to what you are wanting it to look like, designs it exactly to those specifications, and installs it with precision. He is very professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him for any custom woodworking you may need.Read More

Mitch Henige helped us to design a custom fireplace surround/mantle and crown molding for our family room from a few magazine photos we showed him. He listened carefully to our wishes and then added his own ideas based on his expertise. After meticulous measurements, he returned two weeks later returned with his finished product and completely installed the fireplace surround/mantle and crown molding in one day. He was very pleasant to work with and we are extremely pleased with the results. Next we had him recreate our 1857 wooden gingerbread cornice board trimwork in Azek material. He copied the original patterns perfectly and from ground level you cannot tell that it is not the original woodwork. We have seen other examples of his workmanship (fine kitchen and bath cabinetry) and would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Henige to others.Read More
