What sets us apart from the rest?  
 

We are unique in that we are one of the few millwork companies who  do not subcontract out any portion of our work. We employ our own in-house draftsman who creates custom drawings  for each project,  a fabrication shop with state of the art equipment enabling our skilled craftsman to build only the finest quality products, a finish shop with two spray booths that enable our experienced finishers to produce a high quality and custom finish using our two part catalyst system, as well as our own professionally trained installation team. From start to finish the project is in our hands; therefore we can control, ensure and guarantee that our standards for quality are maintained and met.

Chris Wollaston, Owner/Founder
Chris Wollaston began his career in wood working early on in his Dad’s basement workshop in Montana. By the age of 12, he was honing his skills in shop class learning the art of sharpening a hand planer which took the better part of that semester. High school was spent learning the old school way of surfacing a board with that hand planer. Summers between college semesters at the Montana School of Mining were spent working in the logging industry learning all aspects of harvesting lumber. After college, he relocated to Texas where he began a career in the home building industry starting out with framing, then moving on to trim carpentry and finally custom cabinetry and furniture. Whether learning joinery from a master cabinet maker or carving from the Basilio Brothers; Chris’s expertise in millwork grew.  In 1996, Chris decided to go into the cabinetry and fine woodworking business for himself and Georgetown Woodworks has been “building dreams”ever since. His passion has always been fulfilling the inspiration of the client and to build the best quality product out there. Chris understands that this can’t be accomplished on his own and takes pride in surrounding himself with a capable team who shares his philosophy. When Chris is not working or spending time with his three children, Chris enjoys golf and tennis and the occasional fishing or elk hunting trip.
