Craftsman (Furniture Builder)
Craftsman (Carpenter/Woodworker) A craftsman at Holtz Custom is the core of our business creating fixtures and furniture that are custom made for clients. Craftsmen transform wood, metal, acrylic, and other materials to faithfully create a customer?s vision. Our craftsmen (and women) take a design either from the client, or from our in-house designer, and manage the process of cutting, shaping, assembling, finishing, and often installing furniture and fixtures. Craftsmen sometimes work independently on a piece, but often are working as part of a team, each with their own skills, and abilities, to complete a larger project. Craftsmen are commonly the resident experts on materials, and assembly techniques. Craftsmen are typically experienced, but come with varying levels of experience and skill.
