ABOUT US

ED ROORDA

Ed Roorda discovered his knack and passion for building furniture when he made a pool table in his high school shop class. Ed began building furniture for others in the 1970s. Oakridge Woodworking was born in 1980, when Ed’s hobby became a full-time business as demand for his quality furniture grew.

JAMIE BIRRELL

Son-in-law Jamie Birrell joined the business in 2006. Trained as a civil engineer, rumour has it Jamie slept with a hammer as a young boy. He’s also an award-winning 3-D designer and Autocad wizard.
The owners’ Christian faith guides everything we do from our strong work ethic to our emphasis on integrity and honesty, and the way we treat our employees.
“Our customers rave about our quality,” says Jamie. “We don’t cut corners. At the end of the day, people get a beautiful product for incredible value.”

THE TEAM

Our team of more than 30 skilled team members work in their areas of specialty from design, to finishing, cabinet construction, installation, and sales. Together we collaborate on outstanding kitchens, vanities, fireplaces, and wall units for individuals and custom home builders in Niagara, Welland, St. Catharines, Grimsby, Niagara-on-the-lake, Fort Erie, and Burlington.

The difference is in the details.

Our sturdy cabinet boxes are constructed with precisely milled, CNC material secured with tight-fitting blind-dado joints and fastened with nails and screws, never staples. Crafted locally in the Niagara region, our soft-close drawers are completed with the finest European hinges and drawer running systems. Though we have standard trims and finishes to choose from, the sky’s the limit. We can customize your cabinets to your unique space and lifestyle. Most of our kitchen cabinets are made with Canadian hardwood—like oak and maple. We fully trim our kitchen cabinetry, making it furniture you can be proud of. Oakridge Woodworking produces fantastic custom kitchens at a price that most people can afford. Why settle for anything less? Contact us today to begin plans for your dream kitchen, vanity, fireplace, or wall unit.

When designing the cabinetry for our new home, Jamie Burrell [from Oakridge Woodworking] helped us pair everything together from cabinets, to framed mirrors, drawers and doorknobs/handles. We would use OakRidge again and recommend them to friends.  RENE & MARY TALLEVI, homeowners

Since Oakridge Woodworking manufactures their own cabinets, they have full control on delivery and can service repairs or items that come up during construction. This keeps our projects on target. Marcon Construction
