“Building Custom Cabinets since 1978”

History of “The Shop”…

The shop was established by Dave Reisinger in 1978 and at that time was known as Reisinger Cabinets. It was a much smaller operation then, with the original shop size being only 20′ x 50′. There were a few small additions over the years and in April of 1987, Reisinger cabinets changed hands and came to be known as Stewart Cabinets. A major expansion was done in 1995 to accommodate the growing business and on May 1, 2006 Joe and Ann Harren purchased Stewart Cabinets and changed the name to Westwind Woodworkers. Joe, Ann and the entire crew at Westwind Woodworkers are committed to making your home aesthetically pleasing as well as functional to live in. You can expect quality craftsmanship at affordable prices from Westwind Woodworkers.

The Westwind Crew…

The staff of Westwind Woodworkers is comprised of experienced designers, woodworkers, finishers, and installers who take pride in everything they do. It’s because of their combined talents and commitment to excellence that you can be assured your final project will “Wow” for years to come.

Joe began working at the shop in 1982 when he was hired on as the third employee. He started out cutting parts and sweeping floors and over the years gained experience in every position, from pre-finishing to installing to shop foreman. He has been in the role of designing cabinets since 2003. In 2006 he and his wife, Ann, purchased the shop and Westwind Woodworkers was established. So, it is safe to say Joe knows kitchens (and the custom cabinetry business) very well. His expertise in the cabinet design and build process is unmatched and has contributed to the exponential growth of the business and well-respected reputation in the community. When not at the shop, Joe enjoys spending time with family and friends, biking, golfing, walking, hiking and restoring old vintage boats.

Since then, Ann has dedicated her design skills and experience to the builders and homeowners with whom she works. She understands that the selection process can seem overwhelming at first and it is her goal to make the process fun and painless so that in the end you are confident that you have selected the most beautiful finishes for your new home or remodel project. Outside of work, Ann enjoys spending time with her family and friends, quilting, golfing, gardening, walking and hiking.
