Looking to remodel your kitchen, or do a wall of built-in’s in the family room? If you live anywhere in the Clinton County, Illinois area, the place to call is Kunz Carpentry.
Begun in 1972 by Frank and Karen Kunz, Kunz Carpentry has grown and evolved from providing new home construction and remodeling to being masters of handcrafted custom cabinetry. But it’s not just the workmanship—which is top-notch— that customers appreciate; it’s also the personal service and in-depth knowledge the company offers.
Though custom cabinets are the main focus, the company also creates intriguing one-of-a-kind items, such as the whimsical chest of drawers featured on its website, plus a variety of mantels, outdoor wagon-wheel furniture and other yard items.
You might not think looking at a woodworking shop for gifts, but Kunz Carpentry has lots of fun ones, including wooden puzzles and games, wine bottle holders, stools and more.
