Kevin - Shop Manager / Senior Project Manager

Kevin has 30+ years in the Custom Woodworking/Construction Industry and is a graduate of Assebet Valley Vocational High School  (Cabinet Making/ Carpentry).  He has worked as a Cabinet Maker/Installer, a Construction Supervisor, and Shop Manager for most of his 30+ year career.  His professional background along with this custom woodworking experience has been an integral addition to the Sprague Woodworking team.   Kevin's vast knowledge of our materials and the fabrication process, as well as the templating and  installation process has proved to be extremely helpful to the business.  He  provides specialized and technical expertise in the estimating, purchasing, planning and project management roles that he juggles.  His disciplined follow through is greatly appreciated, especially in a custom Woodworking trade where attention to detail is a must from project start to project finish.  In his off time, he takes this attention to detail to the golf course ... and well ... sometimes it translates and sometimes it doesn't!
