Leadership in Woodworking
Baileigh Industrial has a pretty substantial woodworking team that is led by Aaron Cerkas and James Frenz. With 35 years of combined woodworking experience, these guys have done it all in woodworking.
Aaron came to us from Burger Boat, a well-known luxury yacht builder where he was the assistant millwork manager. He has worked with some of the rarest woods on the planet and has been recognized as a true artisan by many in the industry. Attached are some pictures of the Sycara, a replicated 1800’s vessel that has some of the most extravagant woodworking inside and out. Aaron was in charge of the majority of the woodworking operation which included working with madrone burl, paduk, ebony, anigre, along with some mahogany.
James or “Jimbo” Frenz grew up on the family farm and has been heavily involved in the local woodworking industry for many years. From simple construction and framing jobs, to full blown home building and interior finishing he has done it all. His portfolio is full of beautiful cabinetry and high end millwork that rivals the best in the industry.
These two woodworking aficionados lead our Wisconsin woodworking team in technical and complex woodworking applications. Whether you are just getting started in your home shop and need advice on what woodworking machine will fit your needs, or production woodworking time studies and technical specs are needed, the Baileigh woodworking teammates are some of the best in the business.
