Mark Newman - Design In Wood

“We started working with Mark on a large remodel eleven years ago, and have collaborated on more than 20 projects, since. He is always our first call for complex trim and cabinet installations. I recently visited that first project, and the millwork - a combination of wood, polyurethane, and composition moldings - looks as good as the when it was installed. The oversized pairs of doors that Mark's crew hung on Harmon hinges (extremely obscure, difficult hinges) and the cabinet doors, blind-hung on Soss hinges, still operate flawlessly. The longevity of his work testifies to the precision with which it's installed. As well as being an expert craftsman, Mark is a skillful problem solver and communicator. He applies an engineer's logic and an architect's sketching ability to complex mechanical issues, often improving on the functionality of the designs we've been tasked with implementing. Without Mark's depth of experience and creativity, some of the details of two recent home theater projects we collaborated on would have been impossible to achieve. I wholeheartedly recommend Mark and his company.”

“Mark and his team at Woodcraft have built many custom pieces for me. The quality of the finished product was excellent, the process of executing the design was expertly managed, and installation was top-notch and clean. Many pieces were designed on paper that didn't translate easily or inexpensively into a physical product; Mark worked hand-in-hand with the designer to modify the "paper" design so that the real-world piece came in on budget without losing aesthetic character.  I recommend them highly.”

"I am a general contractor building high end custom homes. Mark has done all of my mill work for the past 12 years. Recently Mark did all of the interior mill work, walnut paneling, in an incredible 11000 sq. ft. home in the Portland West Hills.


Mark is the best in his field in Portland. He is very professional and makes me look good as a general contractor.

“Mark is a wood artist. He did a wonderful job creating, building, and sculpting a wonderful table for our new dinning room. It makes the room. We enjoyed working with him and his work.”
