Brandon N Leadbeater.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We like to have a meet and greet with our customers in order to discuss and brainstorm over their needs and wants. This allows us to get a good understanding of what they are looking for so that each project leaves our customers satisfied.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I completed three years of Industrial Arts education in high school. I also have 15 years working in a home improvement warehouse, where I received a direct education from manufacturers about products and services. I have continued my education by attending training seminars put on by renowned .Master Craftsman.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service?
Unfortunately, custom woodworking usually does not allow for a set pricing system. However, I do provide every customer with a complete job quote that details every aspect of the quote and I am more than willing to go over every detail with a customer if they have any questions.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got started in woodworking in high school and have developed a love of Woodworking in the process. I have always considered myself a problem solver and enjoy finding solutions to satisfy my customer’s needs and wants.
How does your service stand out?
At Kevin's Custom Woodworking we pride ourselves on giving our customers design solutions that fit all there needs
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I enjoy watching a project come to life from the ground up. This work allows me to engage both my creative and technical talents and put them to use for the benefit of others which is very rewarding. There is no better feeling than walking away from a job site knowing that we have satisfied all our customer needs and desires for their project.
I have been doing woodworking since I was 13 years old. My school in North Carolina knew that most of its students would not get pass the ninth grade (that's Higher Education for most hillbilly's). So they started us in Wood Shop and Home Economics ( cooking and sewing-- guess they wanted us to eat and be covered).
Well I caught the Wood Bug. By the end of my Jr. year i was spending half the day in the wood shop and the other half skipping English and hiding in the Wood Shop.
I'am more than just a woodworker, though that's my true passion. I also do remodeling and floor work, all but carpet. I build custom Cabinets, Vanities,built-in's, Furniture and other wood related Repairs, such as Motor Homes and Boats. I have done complete rehabs to just a Bathroom floor.
I was Certified Master Automotive L1 Tech till 1997 when health issues cam up. I then moved into the repair ans maintenance world. I worked for local schools and churches.
I worked full time for the big Orange Box, for 15 years as a Pro Account Sales Associate, as well as helping those struggling for advice on their home repairs and remodeling.
I'am now working full time doing my custom woodworking.
