Welcome to The Craftsmen Group

 

 


Established in 1989, we are carpenters, cabinet makers, a metal smith and glass artisan dedicated to the preservation of Washington’s better old buildings.  Having worked in many ambassadorial residences, museums and architectural landmarks, our quality and diligence has few peers in this city. At our shops in Northwest, we replicate and restore windows and doors, working with domestic hardwoods, imported mahogany, and teak. 

Our goal is to build elements appropriate to the building and its history.  The proportion, details, materials, and operation of the millwork in older buildings (pre WWII) are more than charmingly archaic.  The simpler means and methods of the work, the more robust parts and material quality all make for more handsome and durable architecture.  It is among these things we find our work most respected and needed.

At our shops we also provide extensive glass working to support the window work, including stained and leaded glass, bowed glass, insulating retro fits, fusing, casting and cylinder glass. With a staff of painters and a master finisher, we can apply traditional pigments and varnish, French polish or of course brush apply modern acrylic paints.

In addition to providing a single source for all wood architectural elements we do arc and tig welding, forge work, turnings and CNC machining. Working with steel, copper, brass and aluminum, we support our millwork from hardware restoration to jigs for production. Prior to an agreement you are welcome to tour our facility and meet the craftsmen and of course encouraged to browse our website.
