Southwest Woodworks is family owned and operated along with my wife and two sons. I am originally from Grayson County in the southwest section of Virginia. After high school, I attended Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, where I graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. I came back to Blacksburg for my second engineering job after a brief time out of the area. I have now been in the New River Valley for about 20 years. My engineering experience spans over 22 years working in the main disciplines of manufacturing, quality, and design.
In my senior year of high school, I took an interest in woodworking. This led into an interest in construction. In 2000, I acquired my Class C contractorís license in Virginia. In 2008, I upgraded this license to a Class A. With the acquisition of a 3 axis CNC router, I decided to bring my engineering, contracting, and woodworking together to create Southwest Woodworks.
Southwest Woodworks can design and build our customerís projects from start to finish. I welcome the smallest and even the most unusual job. I pride my company on unmatched customer service and I am eager to serve my customers. Please contact me by phone, email, or text and I will be glad to answer your questions and assist you in any way. Without a doubt, I will respond to you!
Q: I need a sign that is 3' x 5', about how much will that cost?
A: Cost is usually first on someone's mind and that is very important. But, there are so many possibilities when creating a sign that I can't give a price without first knowing a lot of information. For example, is the sign one sided or double sided, is it going to be outside, does it have special artwork, does it need 3D effects, does it need to be installed, etc. Signs can range anywhere from $10 per square foot to $200 per square foot. The biggest advise that I can give is to think about what your sign needs to say and represent. It is also good to have a budget in mind. If you have a budget for your sign, I can take that and tailor a sign to give you the best possible features to make the most of your money.
Q: Do you only make signs out of wood?
A: Absolutely not, I can make signs from a variety of materials. I love wood, as my business name suggests, but wood doesn't always suit the need. Signs can be made from urethane foam, polyethylene, PVC, acrylics, polycarbonates and more.
