The History of Millwork
Carpentry and wood carving are among the oldest professions, dating back thousands of years. In the United States, the Golden Age of mill working was between 1880 – 1910, a period in which almost every building and all interiors, including furniture, were made of wood. Since that time, advancements in technology have allowed other materials for interior architecture and furniture to develop, including synthetic veneers which have the appearance of wood. In modern millwork, it is common to use a combination of wood and synthetic elements.

Commercial & Industrial Molding & Millwork
Millwork is an integral part of most commercial architecture, especially in education, healthcare, government and corporations. Architectural millwork elements are used internally and externally in both decoration and structural elements, such as:
- Stairwork and rails
- Wall panels
- Window casings
- And more!
Generally, there are two main types of millwork manufacturers: Mass-produced or commodity millwork manufacturers and custom millwork manufacturers.
Mass-produced millwork products will either be built and tested to AWI standards, or they will not. Products that are not tested to AWI standards is what you will typically find in the big box stores; they’re inexpensive because they are mass produced and often use cheaper materials, limiting the options in size and style. Products built and tested to AWI Standards are still limited in size, but they are usually available in more material types and a higher quality.
Custom-designed architectural millwork is what you can expect from GW Millwork. Our products are built with superior workmanship using only the highest quality materials. Clients can specify exactly what they want and we can deliver!
