“Dunn Development has been working with Brooklyn Woods since 2012, and we’re consistently impressed with the high quality of their work. We also value the fact that working with Brooklyn Woods means supporting low-income men and women who are building new careers. Beautiful cabinetry and an important cause is a great combination.”

-Martin Dunn
BROOKLYN WOODS SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Brooklyn Woods operates a social enterprise woodworking business which fabricates cabinets, bathroom vanities and custom millwork, utilizing environmentally-friendly materials, for housing developments throughout New York City. Our projects range in scale from dozens of kitchens to hundreds of bathroom vanities. To learn more about whether Brooklyn Woods can suit your needs, please give us a call.

HIGH QUALITY

Every Brooklyn Woods cabinet is hand-made and locally crafted. We use the highest-quality materials and techniques that ensure our products are beautiful and long-lasting.

Sustainability is a core value at Brooklyn Woods. All materials used to build cabinets and other woodwork are FSC-certified and have no added urea-formaldehyde. Woodwork is finished with low VOC water-based lacquers. Off-cuts from Brooklyn Woods’ production are used in our training program for skill-building projects, including a cutting board.

SOCIAL RETURN

The Brooklyn Woods production shop is entirely staffed by graduates of our training program, which provides rigorous skills training and job placement for dozens of low-income, unemployed individuals each year. After training, our graduates gain valuable experience manufacturing and installing high quality woodwork before going on to work for other businesses in the industry.

Working with Brooklyn Woods creates significant social impact. This aspect of the work we do is frequently featured in contracting bids and marketing materials by our partners.

PROFESSIONAL STAFF

Brooklyn Woods is run by professionals with more than 50 years of combined experience in woodworking and cabinetmaking. We offer responsive, tailored quotes and we deliver on what we promise.
