WE BELIEVE THAT CABINETRY WORTH CREATING SHOULD BE NOT JUST CUSTOM, BUT ACTUALLY TAILOR-MADE.

Hand-crafting cabinetry should involve more than just custom sizes, doors styles and finishes. It should go back to the heart of what needs to be accomplished in your space and what feeling you would like your space to communicate. We are available to travel anywhere in the U.S. to do a project, and are especially accessible to customers in the north-east, from D.C. to Boston.

supplies your kitchen from your own organic garden. You might need a station in your kitchen where you could plant seedlings and wash freshly harvested vegetables. You might want an area for an indoor herb garden, a food dehydrator and possibly even a canning station. Your space should feel so natural to you that it fits as well as your favorite gardening glove.
needs the practicality of being able to prepare meals for your family, but needs to combine that with a space that can shine as an entertaining stage. You probably would need a dedicated beverage area with a sink and ice maker that's well located in your layout for easy access and good traffic flow. Maybe you'd need a specific work station for pastries and baking, but want to be able to conceal that workspace in a matter of seconds to instantly streamline the look of your cabinetry. Your space should feel equally comfortable as a Tuesday night family kitchen or a Saturday night hot-spot.
crowding your space with "functional" but extensive cabinetry does not run parallel to the atmosphere you have in mind. You might prefer to connect your workspace to a large walk-in pantry that houses everything you need, but is a separate area where all the necessities can be hidden away. Pair this with a flush recessed fridge and an island or base cabinetry with a sink, dishwasher, range and a vent hood that could double as sculpture, and you have the function of a kitchen with the sleekness of a dining-room buffet. This concept can be a perfect fit in an open room combined with a lounge or in a weekend home whose purpose is ease and renewal rather than busy function. Your space should be able to reflect those purposes.
needs the kitchen to act as the brain and heart of your home. This is a place for study and conversation, with storage for homework and drawings, while having specific zones for you to prepare meals and a layout that allows more than one person to help with cleanup. The design must ensure that traffic does not flow through danger areas, while avoiding a small "trek" for mom to help with a math problem. An open line of sight, tailor-made counter heights and creative storage are some smart ideas that can help can turn a smaller space into a hub of family and function. Your space should feel like Command Central for your busy home.

Maybe you are an individual who didn't know that there is still someone who would tailor-make something for you... we will.

We are craftsmen with Old World ideals. We rely on honesty, integrity and responsiveness to our clients as the basis for our craft. To keep the purpose of the "perfect fit" central to your project, we have created a natural break in our process between the "design" step and the beginning of the "creation" step. This allows the discovery and design process to take its full course without requiring you to commit to the fabrication of the pieces until you are ready. Our design is not ego-based, but is simply our expertise and creativity applied to your specific ideas and desires.

  • Wes Funk, The Visionary

    For Wes Funk, it all started with a walnut tree on his father's farm.

    He helped his father cut down that tree, kiln-dry the wood into usable planks, then use them to build a bedroom suite. "To see those boards made into a piece of cabinetry just invigorated me," Wes says.

    Wes Funk, The Visionary

    For Wes Funk, it all started with a walnut tree on his father’s farm.

    He helped his father cut down that tree, kiln-dry the wood into usable planks, then use them to build a bedroom suite. “To see those boards made into a piece of cabinetry just invigorated me,” Wes says.

    Although Wes always loved woodworking, he considered himself a “jack of all trades” as a young adult and applied himself to masonry, mechanical work and construction. Those trades served him well, especially after he became a building manager at a Texas college.

    Although he had previously worked as a fabricator at a kitchen manufacturer, it was in the Lone Star State that Wes built his first kitchen on his own. He was hooked, and the “jack of all trades” realized he wanted to excel at one thing: cabinetry.

    Wes soon returned to Lancaster County and worked for a local cabinet shop. In 1992, he ventured out on his own and founded Wynwood Kitchens. “I did everything: designed it, built it, finished it, installed it,” Wes recalls of being a one-man-band during the company’s early years. “I enjoyed that because I like variety.”

    Today, with a leadership staff, Wes is doing less of everything himself and is transitioning into the company’s director, as well as guiding Wynwood Kitchens toward more unique and challenging projects. “I’m still getting variety, but I’m overseeing it,” he says, noting that his new role also allows him more energy to focus on business integrity and long-term success. Wes praises team leaders Nate and Carl, and completely trusts in their abilities. He’s also excited by the way they’ve enhanced his own commitment to quality and how they thrive on the challenges higher-end cabinetry work presents, as well as the satisfaction they all receive in knowing they’re helping families improve the quality of their lives.

    Wes’ philosophy: “At Wynwood, we take our talents and gifts in working with wood and combine them with our customers’ unique needs and dreams to create a one-of-a-kind living space tailored for them.”

  • Nate Brubaker, The Designer

    Nate Brubaker's life has come full circle.

    The second-generation woodworker was born in Lancaster County and spent the first few years of his life in a house in Mountville, where his father started a custom-cabinetry business. When Nate was 6, his father sold the business and took the family around the world as a full-time builder for mission work.

    Nate Brubaker, The Designer

    Nate Brubaker’s life has come full circle.

    The second-generation woodworker was born in Lancaster County and spent the first few years of his life in a house in Mountville, where his father started a custom-cabinetry business. When Nate was 6, his father sold the business and took the family around the world as a full-time builder for mission work.

    Nate clearly remembers traveling across America, and living in Europe and New Zealand (where he eventually met his wife). He even spent four years residing at an estate that once housed England’s Duke of Portland and later, the Dukes of Somerset – a 17th-century fortress complete with turrets, tunnels and thick brick walls.

    Today, he lives in the very house that once held his father’s business, but his experiences living abroad have opened his eyes to styles beyond traditional Lancaster County design. Working alongside his father in construction, framing, plumbing and electrical work have honed Nate’s engineering and design skills, too.

    Nate began working at Wynwood Kitchens after returning to the United States. He has worked in all aspects of the business including layout, construction, fabrication, finishing and installation. Today, he specializes in management and design, where his natural abilities and love of people are even more apparent.

    Nate has always loved the design aspect of the business – even as a young boy, he’d spend hours measuring wood and metal, and making calculations in order to perfect his hand-built coaster cars. Today, he applies that skill and passion to engineering solutions for customers unique living needs, desires and challenges.

    Nate’s philosophy: “In many projects, the challenge is finding out how to merge the perfect function and the perfect look. I love finding creative ways to marry the two – form and function.”

  • Carl Ranck, The Lead Craftsman

    Carl Ranck originally went to school to become a math teacher. But, he soon discovered that he liked working in a shop much more than working in a classroom.

    "In my heart, I know that I need to be doing something with my hands," he says.

    Carl Ranck, The Lead Craftsman

    Carl Ranck originally went to school to become a math teacher. But, he soon discovered that he liked working in a shop much more than working in a classroom.

    “In my heart, I know that I need to be doing something with my hands,” he says.

    So, during his college years, Carl poured his talents into jobs that required combining his math skills with material projects. He worked as a house framer and a handyman before discovering his talents especially stood out when building kitchen cabinetry.

    A few years ago, Wes presented Carl with the opportunity to become shop foreman for Wynwood Kitchens. It was too good an offer to pass up, so Carl closed his business. “I’m quite happy here,” he reports, noting that he and Wes were once friendly competitors who even helped each other out on occasion.

    Carl loves the fact that Wynwood’s clients bring an endless variety of design ideas and living spaces – and, like a good math problem, each living space requires different steps and equations that must be carefully thought out in order to reach the perfect solution. “I thrive on creating these unique pieces,” he says.

    Carl’s philosophy: “Something I’ve always loved is installation. Seeing all the pieces joined to form the final result is extremely rewarding.”
