Jerry A. Rowland
After more than five years acting as a sole proprietor Jerry Rowland founded Handcraft Woodworking in 1994 since then Handcraft has built its reputation as one of the top millwork companies in architectural design oriented to the luxury market and working on the principles of hi-end quality and customer service. Jerry is the owner and President of Handcraft Woodworking and Handcraft Construction Management.
For Jerry woodworking is more than a finely honed craft, it’s a youthful skill turned career and a lifetime pursuit. Influenced by his father – an amateur woodworker – he spent his early years experimenting with virtually anything he could nail down, in his teens he apprenticed at a cabinet shop where he rediscovered the craft. He obtained a full scholarship in interior design and graduated with highest honors from the Art Institute Fort Lauderdale.
Jerry is a master craftsman and millwork designer, well-versed in various design aspects from modern to classical, creating timeless and elegant designs that never go out of style.
