Fireplace Mantel Designer / Creator - Stuart Agee
Stuart and his company, Agee Woodworks have come a long way since he built his first fireplace mantel in January 1996 in the basement of the Agee home. Today the company is housed in 7500 square feet of space in Ashland, just north of Richmond, Virginia.
Over ten years and three moves later, Stuart and his team of 8, produce nearly 350 fireplace mantels monthly for both the new home industry and individual homeowners alike. The company has increasingly been building more custom fireplace mantels for both new homes and individual homeowners. The Internet has really grown and the company prides itself in customer satisfaction. "We have many happy homeowners coast to coast," says Stuart. Agee Woodworks ships to all the contiguous 48 United States.
His wife, Carol, spends the majority of her time working with on-line customers who want to order custom fireplace mantels. The company tries to replicate any mantel a client dreams up or finds in a magazine.
When he is not in the woodworking shop, you can usually find Stuart strumming his guitar, boating at Lake Gaston, or scuba diving. There are usually two little Pomeranian children accompanying Stuart and Carol wherever they go.
