Our family has been building together for over 30 years. California Woodworking started out as a young couple with a passion for woodworking and a dream of providing quality services. Though the company has grown and changed along with the family those core values remain the same.
Roots in Woodworking
Ed Vickery had a passion for woodworking. He had worked as a ship builder for many years, before moving to a successful but brief real estate career. After the housing boom of the mid 1980s, Ed decided to return to his roots in woodworking. Together with his wife Sue, they started California Woodworking, Inc. It was just the right fit: a family owned and operated business that blended Ed’s passion for craftsmanship and provided customers with a high-quality product, in a timely manner, at a competitive price.
Embracing New Technologies
Over the past 30 years, the company grew and matured along with their family and became an advanced and competitive manufacturer for builders across Southern California.
Today the company is run by Ed and Sue’s son, Luke, who is shepherding California Woodworking into the next 30 years with a special focus on embracing new technologies. By implementing the most efficient laser AutoCAD system, CAD CAM software, CNC cutting technology and lean, California Woodworking ensures that all builds are organized and streamlined.
