Welcome to the BHSW website.
If you're a contractor or homeowner, we're the guys who can do those few small things that your cabinet shop's outsourced components or in-house CNC can't handle. For example, we can make a couple of cabinet doors to match historic ones, or turn a few balusters and stair spindles in the right species. Or we can make a bentwood arch, or maybe a dining table with live edges.

If you're a wood industry supplier, check out our daily woodworking news on WoodEzine.com. There, you can catch up on what's happening in the industry, search our huge database, and even reach out to about 36,000 readers (2018) with an ad.

And if you're the editor of a woodworking magazine or a publisher of how-to book titles, we've been supplying copy and photography for about 35 years now (see below). Whether you have an assignment or want us to create an article or a manuscript, just send a note to the address in the contact box to get the ball rolling.
