As an interior designer I have the highest standards for my clients, it is crucial that I work with the best of the best and that is Heartwood Industries. I have had the privilege of working with Rory on several projects and every time the product she and her team deliver far exceed my expectations. I am a huge advocate for supporting local businesses. Heartwood takes great pride in their craft. They are always accommodating, on schedule, fair, and professional. I won’t use anyone other than Heartwood for my custom furniture and cabinetry needs.

Heartwood made 5 consultation visits. They designed and redesigned due to plumbing obstacles. Installation went effortlessly. They arranged for additional work specialist plumbing and stone cutters.
All workers were great. Great experience.

This was a total new kitchen design. Old kitchen torn out back to the studs
I can't recommend Rory highly enough. This is my fifth kitchen remodel in my life and nothing has ever come close to this level of professionalism. My kitchen is not only beautiful but more functional than I ever dreamed possible. Rory always went the extra mile to work out each detail. No detail was too small for her attention and time. even though she builds cabinets, she got involved in the choosing and purchasing of all of the appliances. She offered many new ideas for things I would not have known about. In the end I have a gorgeous, highly functional, efficient showplace kitchen. I could not be happier.
If you are lucky enough to hire Rory and Heartwood Industries, take her advice and suggestions. She knows her stuff.

Rory and her team created 3 custom pieces for us - a 3 drawer kitchen cabinet, a media center and some spice racks. Rory and her team were great from the beginning to the end. Her suggestions were very helpful, her team created the pieces quickly and everything looks great once it was installed. On the kitchen cabinet, I had originally wanted to go with 2 deep but Rory suggested we go with 3 - a shallow top drawer followed by an normal sized 2nd drawer followed by a deep bottom drawer. It was the perfect suggestion to maximize storage space. We also need to match the color of the existing cabinets and the
Heartwood team was able to do this with no problem. For the custom media cabinet, we have a non-square living room and we needed a cabinet that would fit in a corner with a 60 degree angle. The cabinet needed to fit perfectly but it also needed to accommodate all of my A/V equipment while providing enough ventilation so the equipment wouldn't overheat. The final product was perfect - it looks great while also providing all of the functionality we needed. This was my first experience buying custom furniture and the experience with Heartwood makes we want to commission all types of bespoke wood products in the future.

Heartwood industries did an AWESOME job on my kitchen cabinets!! They made the most beautiful custom made cabinets for me. Their craftsmanship is beautiful. If you need anything made out of wood, hire them...they're the best!! I highly recommend Heartwood Industries!

Heartwood Industries built and installed my beautiful new kitchen cabinets. and oversaw the entire kitchen remodel. Rory, along with myself, designed the kitchen, choose the countertop, the backsplash, floor tiles and paint colors. Rory served as the project manager coordinating the electrician, demo person, flooring installation and count top installation. She was here for questions and direction. I am very happy!

We spent months trying to find a wall unit to fill a large, blank wall in our living room. Our home lacked basic storage for books, special family memorabilia, and display areas for a collection of California pottery. All were relegated to a few shelves in the dining room, stacks, and boxes- not a pretty sight. We finally faced reality and started interviewing custom cabinet woodworkers. Heartwood Ind. definitely stood out from the rest.
Rory was right on time for our first meeting, subsequent design and planning session, to final installation. We felt that she truly listened to what we wanted and offered creative/functional design suggestions that we did not even think of. This was the first time we had a custom piece of furniture built and despite Rory's superb communication skills, it felt a little like building a rocket ship in a garage. Well, we are thrilled to say, when it was time to launch the "rocket ship"' it not only flew, but it soared!
Heartwood created a wall unit that truly exceeded our expectations. It is absolutely beautiful! Rory came to our house when the wall unit was installed and everything went smoothly. We were impressed by their attention to detail- made sure the self-closing doors and drawers closed properly and spent extra time adjusting one door so that it met their high standards. The crew vacuumed up and left everything clean. Any problems? Just one...thinking of the next project to have Rory work with us on 🙂

Rory is competent and creative. She suggested several ideas for the closets. She even suggested a handyman for some of the other work we were considering. She has a bright outlook and a can-do attitude.

They converted 6 wooden lockers into 36 cubbies for our employees work out gear.
I have nothing but good things to say about Heartwood Industries. They were prompt in replying to my inquires and timely in the set up of when the work could be done. Their prices are fair and reasonable. They were professional and competent. I highly recommend Heartwood Industries. A ++++

My project was a small project which I was having a difficult time finding a contractor. I had gone through multiple people with no success. To add insult to injury, I had a major remodel done and did not have a great experience. Heartwood was the first company I called. They were responsive and informative. We set a meeting and they were on time and excited to help me with my project. Now, the project. I have a fireplace that was built from the wall and is VERY uneven (I.e. the terrible remodel experience). The fireplace basically needed a surround. Rory, not only was still willing to do the project, but was very diligent and patient. Rory had to visit multiple times to get the correct measurements due to the fireplace being uneven. The results were wonderful. I love the fireplace is beautiful!!!! I am so pleased I chose Heartwood.
The project went excellent from beginning to end.

Rory and her team were just amazing in creating our bookcase! She went out of her way to come to our house several times to answer questions, and provide insightful recommendations. Everyone
in her company is very professional and meticulous, and they were very reasonably priced. They were always promptly on time and very careful. We couldn’t be happier with their work, and we recommend her and her team highly.

Rory and Isaias built us a stand alone bar for our sun room. The design was consistent with the existing cabinets and mantel in our historic home. The cabinet was made with 100% doug fir and the finish was made to match the existing cabinetry in the home. The cabinet employed raised panels, custom moulding, dental features, custom corbels, custom hardware, inset sink, with a bar top made to match the existing fireplace mantel with a mappa inlay.
The craftsmanship was 'old world' and the cabinet was entirely hand made. I couldn't be more pleased with the result (which is basically a fine piece of furniture) and it was worth the wait. I interviewed 5 different cabinet makers and Rory and Isaias were the only cabinet makers to make their own raised panels, doors, and drawers etc. Most cabinet makers use press wood or plywood in every design. I highly recommend Heartwood Industries.
Rory was very accommodating and customer orientated. The project took longer than originally contracted for, but part of that is to be expected because of design changes and problems that naturally arise.

Rory and crew were super responsive. They came on time both for the estimate and the work appointment. They were quick, neat and professional. I would absolutely use them again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Rory and her TEAM are excellent... We had two cabinet doors made to match existing doors in kitchen... PERFECT match! They also, changed the trash "drawer" area in kitchen and it works perfect... NO more opening a cabinet door and then pulling on old "pull-out trash bins". We also, had two other challenges... My office furniture fit perfect in our old home but, in moving we needed to cut down my existing file drawer to fit under work space...
Rory and TEAM took the cabinet drawer back to their shop and were able to "re-work" the cabinet by cutting off the bottom and then stabilizing the drawer.. Works great and fits in my office! The last request was to have a small table made to fit behind a jacuzzi --- Rory and TEAM made this happen too! Rory is very professional and is a joy to work with... Heartwood Industries a true find--- they will always be on my list!

This was a slightly unusual job. We needed a wood prototype made for a new back and body stretching device, which looks like a piece of fine furniture.
Rory, Heartwood's owner and her partner, Isaias, did not disappoint. We supplied rough templates for the device we were prototyping, and they produced a beautiful sample of our product. Isaias even corrected some errors in the original measurements which would have rendered the prototype as less than perfect. So, the result was excellent and exactly what we were looking for.
Our product also needed a padded and upholstered top so Rory recommended a shop for that, Morro Auto Interiors, also in Van Nuys, California, who did an equally excellent job, way beyond our expectations. They tailored the cushion top in a much better way than we had envisioned it.
As others have already mentioned, Rory was great to work with. She has that really wonderful "can do" attitude and we appreciated that very much.

Rory and her team provided floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and drawers for our kitchen, mud room and pantry - a floor space that totals nearly 800 square feet. Although we came to her with a design that we were confident in, she - with our blessing - enhanced and revised it and made it all fit our space perfectly. She is everything that you would expect - and wish for - in a quality cabinet/furniture maker. We cannot recommend her more highly.
We came to Rory with a definitive take on what we wanted. She not only executed it beautifully, she brought great wisdom and experience to the process of re-doing our kitchen that allowed us to see a few errors in our initial thinking.
We had interviewed 5 other cabinet makers - most of them with very big shops and overhead and interested in getting in and out of projects quickly (and not in a good way). Rory came to us and right away my wife was at ease with her experience and intelligence. Her bid was reasonable and although she doesn't provide the fancy computer-generated design of some of her competitors, the quality is there in the end: everything fits, matches and feels as if it was all done with great care - and for your particular space. Remember, you're gonna look at your kitchen for a long time to come - love everything about it, and with Rory you don't have to worry about saying to yourself: "Now why did the cabinet maker do that?" or "That was sloppy."
It's been three years since she and her team finished and we're pleased with every inch of her work. Rory took on an enormous job and - for us - proved that quality crafts-people do, indeed, still exist.

Rory and her partner did excellent job in restoring my old grandfather clock and the legs of a unique coffee table. Also had an old bed frame that they cut out the sides and made fit the under bed drawers. The work is done seamless.
Rory and her partner came and took the precise measurements and had all the items picked up and did the repair and alteration work at the shop and had them delivered on time and everything was done exactly the way was described and requested. I recommend them for every wood furniture work. I am planning to have them to make office book shelves and a corner cabinet.
N.S. - Beverly Hills, CA
Rory designed, manufactured and installed a large desk, multiple file cabinets and two floor to ceiling combined book shelves with drawer space.
Rory, who is the owner and designer of Heartwood, came to my home and discussed what I had in mind. She drew up plans, offered ideas for details like the size of different drawers, various options for increasing work space by including numerous pull out shelves, and, options for the nature and appearance of the final staining. She kept me informed of the status during production and she was ready to deliver all the pieces for installation ahead of anticipated schedule. She was, throughout the process, my advocate, including supervising every step of the installation process. I will be using Heartwood for upcoming projects.

Designed, built and Installed a custom tabletop bar.
They did an outstanding job! We had an area near our kitchen where we wanted an area for sitting, eating, etc. The Heartwood team designed a beautiful piece of furniture that they installed in the area. The piece is unique but matches the rest of our kitchen nicely. It has a durable finish that is appropriate for the amount of use.
Service was solid. They responded quickly to our request for a quote, had great ideas, came up with a reasonable estimate and did the job exactly as explained. Would definitely use them again for any custom wood projects.

Heartwood Industries worked very closely with me to design every aspect of my kitchen cabinets. I knew the look that I wanted and they made just what I wanted. They custom built all the cabinets and worked hard to make every aspect right. There was an issue with some of the cabinet doors and Rory and her team at Heartwood quickly corrected the situation without a moments hesitation.
The stain color and finish was exactly what I requested. I was able to go to their workshop to see the progress, being as picky as I am that was a plus. The drawers and full extension drawer slides are a pleasure to use. I have glass panel doors and shelves that show off the beauty of the cabinets and it's contents. Love em' !
Rory and her people at Heartwood paid attention to what I said and wanted. From the first meeting to completion they made me feel like this kitchen and the matching dining room cabinetry really mattered to them. They wanted to please me and they certainly did. I was a single guy at the time my cabinetry was built that cooked a lot and wanted a great kitchen. When I met my future wife 2 years later THIS KITCHEN SEALED THE DEAL ! :o) Thank you Rory and your Heartwood team

Heartwood Industries were very helpful planning exactly what our needs were within our limited space. They helped us choose the most durable and attractive materials and styles. They gave us a wide choice in finishes and design. They custom built a coffee table, end table and TV cabinet for us. Additionally, our kitchen cabinets had doors with shelves inside and Heartwood converted these spaces to drawers making the cabinets so much more convenient. Now we love our kitchen because we can see everything without ducking down.
I found Heartwood Industries on the internet and made an appointment for them to come to my home. The owner, Rory, came on time with great enthusiasm and knowledge. I told her what we needed and she showed me photos for inspiration. The time from start to delivery was quicker than we expected. It was a pleasure doing business with such professionals and I highly recommend them.

Heartwood Industries designed, installed and created the cabinets for my new kitchen and my laundry room.
The quality and workmanship of my new bamboo cabinets are outstanding and the people I worked with were professional, responsive and went above my expectations in this project.
Rory, the owner, also coordinated the entire project which took under a month from tear down to installation!
I have used Heartwood Industries previously for furniture restoration, new bathroom cabinets, and single piece furniture production and each project has gone on without a problem. I was absolutely delighted with the process and the end result.
I highly recommend Heartwood Industries.
I had heard that kitchen remodels were always a nightmare but this went extremely smoothly. Everything was completed on time, any unusual items were thoroughly explained so that I understood them. Every one who worked on my house was pleasant, thorough and professional.
The project was an excellent experience and I wouldn't hesitate to use Heartwood again!
