In 2009, Chuck Mitchell started a lawn care and property maintenance business. While he said it was a great business, he sold the lawn business in 2016 and continued to do the property maintenance portion of the work. The handyman-style service led him to a completely new venture, one he finds so rewarding today.
“In 2017, I got interested in CNC (computerized numerical control) work and that’s when Mitchell Wood Worx was established,” Mitchell said. “We were doing signs and cutting small craft items to start.”
Mitchell sold unique items locally, setting up a booth at the Apple Festival and offering custom pieces online. Made to order items offered include personalized grow-with-me height rulers, wedding signs, wooden flags, corn hole boards and whiskey barrel lids.
“No matter what we do in the shop, our favorite is when we do custom flags for veterans,” Mitchell said.
Today, Mitchell’s scope of work has grown to include shaker style doors, rustic farmhouse tables with storage underneath, kitchen cabinets, coat racks, closet cabinets and more recently, Christmas silhouettes.
Some of his favorite projects include a custom kitchen island piece and a farmhouse style barn door. Among these projects, the most special ones are the ones with an extra personal touch.
“We take pride in making our custom flags and coat racks,” Mitchell said.
His machinery enables him to add personalization to almost anything, and he offers customers unique products. One of his recent projects includes a large wooden sign with the last name cut out for a wedding reception.
In 2019 Mitchell grew interested in making cabinet parts and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) doors from engineered wood, flat panel processing, and he is now offering custom pallets for companies that do their own crating.
“I love creating things that make others jobs easier, more functional, and safer,” he said.
According to Mitchell, future plans include getting the flat panel processing and custom pallets going strong. For now, he is proud to keep expanding his creations and keep customers coming back for both the service and the quality.
“We are a family run business,” Mitchell said. “I own this business with my wife of 22 years, Shannon, and our two kids Mycayla and Jacob. We have no outside employees. I mainly do the bulk of the work along with the help of the CNC.”
Although his wife has a full-time job, Mitchell said she helps him with the promotion side of the business. Mitchell Wood Worx serves the entire state of Kentucky and he hopes to expand the business to include service to out of state customers as well.
“I think at this point the most unique service is our custom pallets for crating using high-density plastic and wood,” Mitchell said.
