Beech Tree Wood Works

Seattle's Premier Woodworking Artisans Honored with "Best of Houzz" Award Second Year Running

Community of Over 25 Million Monthly Users Chooses Top-Rated Home Remodeling Professionals and Design Trends


Olympia, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2015 -- The people have spoken. In what is considered the "People's Choice Awards" of residential design, local-area woodworkers, Seattle's own Beech Tree Woodworks, have been selected for a "Best of Houzz" exceptional service award by an online community of more than 25 million monthly users.

Houzz (, is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, and is a homeowner-to-homeowner guide to the top home builders, architects, interior designers, landscape pros and other residential remodeling professionals on Houzz from tile, stone and countertop pros to painters.

Beech Tree Woodworks makes locally crafted, high quality custom cabinets, built-ins and furniture crafted with sustainable materials. They are FSC® certified (Forest Stewardship Council) and apply environmentally friendly finishes to their products. All finishing is done in-house, and the shop offers zero or low VOC paint, stains and clear finishes with a commitment to accentuating the woods' grain.

Beech Tree is equally committed to providing outstanding customer service during each phase of a project. A "Best of Houzz" award is awarded in two categories: Customer Service and Design. Customer Service honors are determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2014. One look at Beech Tree's profile shows just how much their focus on customer service is paying off. The excellent reviews on their page are considered badges of honor by Nic James, owner of the shop.

"We are collaborators and craftsmen," says James. "We realize there is more to our business than the cabinets we build. It's also about the relationship we build with the client. It takes good listening and strong communication to create something magical, together."
