FR Review:
For custom woodwork and installation, Center of Woodwork provides dependable, dedicated service at a reasonable price. Manuel Calixto has expanded his father’s one-man trade business to a family-owned and -operated company with twenty employees and a range of high-profile celebrity clientele (Paul Krugman, Robert De Niro and Jane Krakowski to name a few). The business works comfortably in rustic and antique styles, contemporary and modern, as well as traditional projects.

In addition to its Upper East Side showroom, the Center has a second shop at 216 West 103rd Street. They focus on cabinets, wall units, radiator covers and Murphy beds and can also do specialized finishes such as high gloss, stains and faux finishes (all in-house). Additionally, they make simple furniture like tables and chairs, and will soon open an e-store to sell these products. The Center frequently incorporates glass and marble into projects, which can also be done in-house. Most of Center of Woodwork’s projects use veneers at the request of the client, but they will work in solid woods when they have the budget for it.

About ten to twenty percent of business is commercial, and some of Center of Woodwork’s most visible commercial projects are the large tables and shelving units in dozens of Le Pain Quotidiens around the city. The rest of the business is split equally between individual and trade clients. The Center quotes upfront on the basis of materials, labor and delivery. We hear that prices are very competitive, though it’s important to note that they do not accept credit cards.

Representative Client Comments:
“I’ve worked with Center of Woodwork on many projects. I try to use them for every interior I do.” “They do great installation of all their work.” “They’re very easy to deal with, and get the job done right the first time.” “They will accommodate rush orders for me.” “Prices are very competitive.” “Collaborative, highly engineered woodworking.” “A very reasonable price given the time and talent expended.” “I have worked extensively with CoW on my own renovation. I began working with them in November 2010 and continue to use them extensively on increasingly complex and creative projects requiring a high degree of skill, planning, precision and judgment. The projects include a highly custom kitchen, a foyer renovation and an extensive bathroom and bedroom renovation.”
