While we’re on the topic of excellent Boulder contractors: Once you get a top notch Boulder architect to design your beautiful space (or interior, or landscape, or furniture)–now you have to hire the equally-quality construction craftspeople to partner with them, to actually build the amazing things you’ve gotten designed. And this is where our favorite Boulder area carpenters come into play.
Craftsmanship is key when you’re a good carpenter: you’ve got to be good at what you build (or renovate, or fix) when you’re dealing with the number of high-end homes and well-known businesses located in Boulder county. Good carpenters pair their practical construction skills with a stellar sense of aesthetics, too, though–like their cousin contractors the architects, they’ve got to have a good eye for the beautiful, as well as the well-built.
How do you find the Boulder carpenters that are right for your project, though? Looking at reviews is a good way to go in general, but when you’re randomly searching online, it’s kind of crazy how many carpenters you’ll click on that end up being centered in Denver, Westminster, or even as far away as Littleton. But fear not! We at Your Boulder have got a list of the greats–you need go no further than below to see who our 5 favorite carpenters are in Boulder proper and further afield in Boulder County.
These 5 companies are the best at what they do–working with Boulder’s natural resources and crafting them to make your home or commercial space beautiful as well as kind to the cherished and unique Boulder environment.
Peter Glass Woodworks
Despite his name, Peter Glass is a woodworking specialist. And boy, it only takes one brief glance at his website’s gallery page to see just how good he is at what he does.
He’ll create classic and beautiful heirloom woodworks, of any stripe you need: from custom and long-lasting furniture, to gift and decor items like amazing wooden bowls and boxes, to wood-paneled walls and bigger interior designs like bookshelves and built-ins.
His pieces are artistic and long lasting–they’ll up the value of your property, make your neighbors jealous, and be useful and beautiful for years to come. Glassworks his woods in classic, contemporary, or Western styles, but he’s all about aligning his designs to his clients’ specific needs, so give Peter Glass a ring when you’re thinking about that special, unique new wood piece for your space.
Boulder’s Handy Dandy
Big spectacular carpentry projects are one thing (and very important when creating an ideal living or workspace), but sometimes it’s all about those little tinkering, repair, or otherwise tiny carpentry needs, maybe that you’d mess up if you tried them yourself, that is so necessary. That’s where Boulder’s Handy Dandy comes in.
Handy Dandy is just what it sounds like: a group of skilled and enthusiastic folks who will take care of all your niggling fix-it, repair, and renovation needs, while also excellent at framing and all sorts of bigger carpentry projects too. Boulder’s Handy Dandy are even experts at furniture assembly, so put down that unintelligible instruction booklet on that dining room set you just bought, and give the Handy Dandy folks a call instead. (P.S. They love doing bathrooms, and will even hang your pictures for you!)
For worry-free repairs and remodeling projects, look no further than the professionals at Mr. Handyman. They cover the more far-out areas of Boulder County, way out East in Boulder and just beyond: East Boulder itself, Gunbarrel, Erie, Lafayette, and even as far as Broomfield.
Mr. Handyman is quick and trustworthy with anything on your carpentry to-do lists, projects that pile up to be done, or even urgent repairs. Their work is always guaranteed, whether you need them to come help with a residential or commercial space, and the best part is? They always clean up after themselves.
So if you’re located in the Eastern realms of Boulder, give Mr. Handyman a call–they’ll show up immediately and provide the most professional and courteous of handyman, assembly, carpentry, and many more services (we hear they do great decks).

JH also has your back if you’re in Erie, Lafayette, Louisville, Longmont, or Niwot, (let alone everywhere in Boulder itself), and even work in our close neighbor Eldorado Springs. JH’s professional and experienced skills in all your carpentry needs will not only be tailored to your particular tastes, but will work in line with your environment. After all, a home in Longmont is different than a Mom & Pop restaurant in Superior, right?

Boulder carpenter Steve Terjak comes from generations of carpenters, with a very Boulder-like love of nature and reverence for our local woods showing in spades in anything his company Sequoia Carpentry does.Carpentry is in his DNA, and it shows: Terjak has a reverence for the way various woods behave (just read his description of the amount of detailed planning and knowledge that goes into a long-lasting and attractive fence, for instance), and is dedicated to working closely with each of his clients to make sure he’s doing exactly what they want aesthetically, as well as what’s needed structurally.
Terjak works on commercial and residential projects, but the custom residential work is the kind he admits is the most satisfyingly challenging. He’s been a top tier carpenter for over 20 years now, and Boulder is lucky to have him around.
