Dedication to meeting the functional and aesthetic requirements of each project ensures our customers’ satisfaction.


Les Graves – Owner, Designer, Craftsman

Les Graves is the owner of Custom Woodworking.  He works with each customer from the initial design to the final finish and installation of each project. Les offers his expertise in hand-drafting designs, selecting quality materials, manufacturing components, assembling and installing each project.

Les loves the Alaskan lifestyle. He has made his home in Alaska’s interior since 1973. His experience in all phases of home construction, including log homes, complements his fine woodworking talents.

When he is not crafting quality Alaskan woodworking projects, Les is likely on an Alaskan river with a paddle in his hand.  The aesthetics of his custom furnishings are inspired by the time he spends exploring Alaska’s wild natural environments.
