The founder of our company, Joël Schiavone, is the son of American teachers who worked for the armed forces in Germany. He was born and raised in the town of Bad Tolz, in the southern part of the country known as Bavaria. Germany is a land of quality engineering and work ethic. What can often be heard is, “If you are going to do it, then do it right”! Our company has held true to the old world craftsmanship and integrity that was observed in those early years. Furthermore, living in Europe allowed for the exposure to some of the best woodwork in the world. Schiavone Woodworking replicates that quality.
The background helped to create valuable skills for the American market. Americans are a resourceful and enterprising people, always open to the raising of standards. American ingenuity has helped our company take the best ideas and refine them even further into a world class standard. The quality of our business has found a receptive and friendly market for which we are continuously grateful!
We have also imported woodworking technology directly from Europe. The baseline for the cabinetry side of our business is the 32 millimeter system developed in Germany. Our superior rabbet edge doors, the lift and slide doors, as well as the slide and fold doors, are all products from generations of door making in Europe.
Finally, our shop contains some of the finest tools in the industry. Blades are sharp and tools are accurate to accomplish what we and our clients expect. Our shop is run by highly skilled and attentive woodworkers. These, in turn, have brought new abilities and decades of experience to compliment our business. As a staff, we meet frequently to discuss how to better serve our customers and how to improve on what we do. This keeps our work interesting and challenging into the future. We really enjoy getting up to do our job!
