Hi! My name is Russell and I am the woodworker behind Black Bayou Design.
I never dreamed the little woodworking side hustle I started in 2019 would turn into a full-time business. Black Bayou Design started under a tent in my driveway. Since then, we have expanded to a 3,000 sq. ft. shop, appeared on HGTV, and gained a reputation as the premiere hardwood table builders in North Louisiana.
How our business started, building cabinets under a tent in our driveway
Our current 3000 sq. ft. shop on
As featured on HGTV
I founded this business on 3 principles:
Custom Built to Order
We don’t have a showroom, rolling stock, or prefabricated cabinets. Every single project is custom built to your specifications in house. We mill our own hardwood, cut our own cabinet doors, paint, stain, & finish everything here at our shop.
If we build you a table and it wobbles, you need to level your floor. We build our cabinets to outlast the house they are installed in. We only use quality materials, no particle board or balsa wood. Period.
Open Door Policy
As a client, you will always have the right to stop by our shop and check out how your project is progressing. We take very seriously the fact that you are spending your hard-earned money with us. All we ask is that you call ahead so we can make sure we are at the shop & not on an install.
If you have a project in mind, be it a small jewelry box or an entire house full of cabinets, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to working with you!
Owner, Black Bayou Design
