One of the great things about America is the freedom we have to pursue the things we’re most curious and passionate about. This freedom is available to anyone with a dream and a willingness to work hard to achieve that dream. This concept is alive and well at Woodworx. When Todd Albee, a native of Pennsylvania, and Gabriel Araujo, from Argentina, met on a project in the early 2000s, they were both subcontractors doing residential trim work. It was clear from the start that something clicked between them. Not only did they share a love of carpentry, but also a love of freedom. And in 2007, they set out to create a carpentry company unlike any other. One based on transparency, professionalism, and a willingness to do the kind of work that others wouldn’t touch.
While starting a company during an economic downturn isn’t the best fortune, they emerged from the recession with a clear vision for their company. And that vision didn’t include a traditional subcontractor model based on a complacent routine that becomes more about fulfillment than creativity.
Gabriel and Todd aren’t keen on complacency, and are rich in creativity. They recognize that they each have gifts for woodworking, and that collectively they form a strong team. And since 2007, they’ve partnered with homeowners, architects, designers, and builders in Charlotte and around the country to create stunning and immersive work that has set them apart as craftsmen. Combine this level of competency with a no-nonsense way of doing business (they’re routinely called “the easiest part of a project”), and you know why Woodworx is different.
From timber frames to custom trim, and from decks to screen porches, commercial spaces, and more, let Todd and Gabriel show you things you may not have yet imagined.
