Our History

The Sprague Woodworking Story

In 1979, Howard Whitman Sprague (or "Whit") founded Sprague Woodworking in a three-story New England Style barn that he designed and built on his property in Harvard, Massachusetts.

As a home builder, Whit brought years of experience in carpentry to his new business. From the very beginning, Sprague Woodworking manufactured cabinet doors, raised panel shutters and custom cabinetry for individuals, contractors, home centers, and lumber companies. Over the years, its loyal customer base grew and the shop was relocated to an industrial space nearby.

Since 1979, Sprague Woodworking has worked with customers both near and far. From stair treads wanted by a homeowner in Virginia to shutters needed for an apartment in New York City, Sprague Woodworking's commitment to superior products and personal service allow them to work with customers across the country.

The Sprague Woodworking Family

Sprague Woodworking has always employed talented local craftsmen and is proud to have two generations of family craftsmen in the business. Today, thanks to Whit's son Alex and son-in-law Glenn, Sprague Woodworking is constantly working to develop new products to meet their customers' needs and is one of the leading custom woodworking shops in the New England area.

Whit knows that Sprague Woodworking's commitment to quality craftsmanship and superior personal service will be passed on to generations of family craftsman.
