About Chmura Custom Woodworks
You Might Say It's in Our Genes!

The Chmura family has a legacy of woodworkers and skilled craftsmen going back to Bryan's Great Grandfather. He built houses on Cleveland's west side in the 1920's and 30's most of which are still standing.

Bryan's Grandfather, while not a woodworker by trade—he was a highly skilled machinist—refinished many family basements and built furniture, quilt-making racks, step stools, and anything else that friends or family needed.

As a child, Rick always enjoyed going “up the garage” to the family woodshop on West 14th Street in Cleveland to make whatever he could out of the scrap wood, learning at a very early age how to safely operate power tools. As he grew up, he always enjoyed crafting things and building whatever he could in his modest woodworking shop.

Bryan was always the creative one. From the time he graduated from The Art Institute in Pittsburgh, he began designing and building small and large furniture and accessories for his friends and family, always envisioning the day when he could start his own business doing what he enjoyed most.

His vision was realized in April 2009, when Rick and Bryan officially started Custom Complete, LLC. Chmura Custom Woodworks is just the first of what will be a family of companies providing custom services and products to residential, commercial, and internet clients.
