Is the drive to Shelby worth it?
Many of our clients live an hour or more away in the Charlotte metro area. This usually leads people to ask, “Why should I drive to Shelby, when I can go somewhere closer”. We understand the reason behind the inquiry and want to share these reasons why we believe that you will find value in taking the time to make the drive.
The drive is not that much different
If you drive anywhere in Charlotte or other large cities, you understand the frustration of being stuck in slow to almost standing still traffic, just to go a short distance! While you are sitting in traffic, think about this…
- It is no more time than driving to or from Lake Norman area (and at least you are moving most of the time and not sitting still on I 77!)
- If you plan your trip after the AM and before the PM rush-hours, it is less than an hour from the South Park area.
- Our process is more efficient. Since we have all the products in the showroom and we do “live design”, we can accomplish so much with one trip to our showroom. Other showrooms that don’t offer real-time design can lead to multiple trips and your project can drag out for weeks.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle
Try something new! Many of our clients enjoy the drive to Shelby because it’s a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the big city. As a bonus, we have some of the world’s best BBQ at Red Bridges Barbecue Lodge, or maybe you prefer their rival Alston Bridges BBQ. Yes, it is a local ‘Battle of the BBQ’. You can always find hidden treasures in a small town, so be sure to plan your trip with plenty of time to explore Uptown Shelby.
“After researching six custom cabinetry providers in and around Charlotte, NC, we chose Walker Woodworking for all of the cabinetry needs for our house renovation. We were thoroughly impressed with the Walker’s professionalism, design assistance, wood quality, variety of door styles and accessories, physical plant organization and cleanliness, and their unbeatable prices.

We offer a unique customer service
To us it is more than selling a product, it is about building a relationship and partnership with our clients. This is the foundation and philosophy that our company was built upon. Our clients matter to us and their specific needs are what drive us to create a design that is unique for their lifestyle. Our number one priority is to learn our clients, no one is the same and neither are their needs. Each client has something unique about them and that is what we want to cater to, to find that blend of styles that matches them. The experience we have gained over the years in doing home renovations and the extensive knowledge of our product is what sets our service apart. We understand what works and what doesn’t in a home, and we also know how to create a design that blends all your wants and needs into a perfect balance. Our clients always appreciate how we can take their ideas and bring them to life, that is our specialty and our calling.
We use the best materials available
There is a difference between going to a ‘Big Box store’ and buying premade cabinets versus shopping with a company that can custom make your cabinets to suit your space and style.
“There are tons of cabinet options, most which use particle board in some areas. We wanted solid wood and quality construction. We visited the shop of Walker Woodworking, seeing the attention to detail and quality in production confirmed that we made the correct choice. Quality and design were very important to us!”
homeowner – F. Potocnik
We have the very best product out there, a product that we proudly can stand behind. This requires us to invest ourselves personally into the process. Our custom cabinets are handcrafted with pride and can be built to fit any style and any space. Whether you need a drop zone that has built-in charging docks, a bathroom drawer that is large enough to place large cans of hairspray or a kitchen with spice pullouts that make cooking so much easier, we have it all.
