What I do

Casework and Millwork Shop Drawings and Shop Drawing Submittals

A complete set of millwork shop drawings from Craftsman Woodworks Engineering Services includes hardware and finish schedules in addition to plans and elevations. Sections and details are added to bring clarity to the construction of the product.  However, I don't simply copy and paste an architectural set into shop drawings.  My craft requires experience and knowledge of woodworking. AWI standards are followed when appropriate during the drafting process because they are widely used and expected in the industry.

I'm proficient in both casework and custom millwork items. I've worked on a wide range of residential and commercial millwork projects including hospitality, institutional, food services and government projects. Drawings frequently include elements such as bars, wall treatments, reception desks, trim, lockers, columns and cabinets.

I make accurate, complete and precise shop drawings.  My drawings are always done by me or by my crew of experienced drafters.  I never outsource projects or portions of projects.  You can expect accurate drawings which yield fewer redlines and error free manufacturing.

Quick turnaround time and reduced cost are among the key benefits of my millwork shop drawings services. The cabinet manufacturing industry is fast paced where every client demands the final product within a small window of production. I can work within these constraints because I optimize my time and processes. I'm a student of Lean manufacturing and I apply Lean principles in my drawing services. 

Whenever the project requires collaboration of resources, I use software such as Bluebeam to manage redlines in time-sensitive and efficient manner. Other team collaboration options are also available.

I've frequently work on projects that require knowledge of Architectural Woodworking Institute standards. Custom and Premium grade construction methods are often required by my clients. I adapt your shop drawings to reflect these construction requirements. I'm looking forward to working with you on your next project!
