Who is Specialty Wood?

About Us


Ideas that Work

Specialty Wood Manufacturing has been doing business since 1975. Our facility is 53,000 square feet and has the ability to turn out virtually any idea utilizing a variety of materials including: woods, metals, glass, solid surfaces, marble, fabric or unique combinations of these and other materials.

Whether it’s functional kitchen fixtures, exotic cabinetry, trim work or simply a totally unique creation, we can fabricate it. Let us show you how real craftsmanship, together with innovation and technology, can make your ideas come alive in wood and metal.




Our craftsmen take pride in the years of experience they possess which allow them to produce the finest hand crafted fixtures in the industry. Being true artisans, they foster the attitude that “the more unique the idea, the better”. This attitude has contributed to the production of some of the most unique designs seen anywhere today.



Our goal is to assist you, in any way possible, to help achieve your goal. We can work from your plans and ideas to provide a complete working set of plans for you.



Value Engineering

For each project we undertake, every attempt is made to extract the ultimate in efficiency by engineering cost effectiveness into it. Value is a strategy, not a by-product. In order to produce an “Apples to Apples” comparison in a finished product, one must have explicit details in the materials being used in the creation. We use materials that stand the test of time, but can substitute products when required.



Our production facility in Tacoma WA just south of Seattle features state-of-the-art equipment guaranteeing precision and efficiency for the fabrication of your cabinetry, millwork and custom bars.
