Behind the scenes at RaymondCraft


A little about Jon Raymond, owner of RaymondCraft

Jon has been in the woodworking industry for 16 years. For 11 years, he was a Lead Builder at a company that built trade show exhibits and retail fixtures. His creations were used by Target Headquarters, Valspar, Sears Craftsman, JCPenny, Whirlpool, Cargill, Emerson, General Mills, Home Furniture, and Mall of America.

Jon decided to start RaymondCraft in July 2015, after recognizing that so many of his neighbors had trouble finding a quality craftsman for their home projects. As a "jack of many trades," Jon knew that he could be their go-to guy for custom woodworking and handyman needs.

Jon also has an Associates degree in Cabinetry from Hennepin Technical College. His favorite wood is Red Cedar because of its color variations and complexity. Over the years, Jon's colleagues have frequently called him "Eagle Eye," because he sees the details that others miss. When he's not making things for clients, he's in his shop making items for his wife's Pinterest wish list.
