The Philadelphia Woodworking Company was founded by Matthew Smolens.¬†Matthew holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art .

Our company is proud to offer our clients a uniquely flexible approach to design and build projects. We provide the resources to deliver efficiently on any scale, along with exemplary customer service and a solutions-oriented methodology. We couple modern technologies with traditional practices for all of your custom woodworking needs.

We have completed projects in many neighborhoods around the region, including Rittenhouse Square, Gladwyne/Penn Valley, Society Hill, Delancey Place, Fitler Square, Chestnut Hill, the Main Line and New York City.

I found the Philadelphia Woodworking Company online through a Google search, and contacted Matt for a quote on a few projects in my home. He came out to meet with me, look at my kitchen and bathroom, and discuss how best to achieve the cabinet designs that I wanted. I found Matt to be very knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and wonderful to work with. The kitchen and bath were both completed on time and within my budget. The finished products fit well with the existing details of the rooms, and are good quality as well. I would certainly use this company again for new commissions or repairs on cabinetry and furniture in my home.
