about FINE GRIT


ideal | dedicated | custom -

Here at Fine Grit, we are dedicated to providing an idealistic experience while creating custom spaces for every client we work with.   

We take great pride in the work that we do. 

From the design, to the build and finish, you will be receiving a unique service that is one-of-a-kind.  We focus on out of the box thinking, creative use of space and the execution to make it happen.  

Fine Grit offers an array of services.  To sum it up in a nutshell, furniture and cabinetry of all sorts and all kinds is our jam.  Large kitchen projects, on it.  Small intricate and detailed pieces, on it.  Complicated?  No problem.   Myself and my crew love to problem solve.  

Fine Grit offers "in house" design services, but if you are already working with someone else on your project, it will be our pleasure to bring to life a design that comes from a third party designer or architect.  

The squad at Fine Grit comes well-equipped with brilliant talent and skills for building and creating as well as professionally trained finishers to make it all shine!  

We have been known to rock out both residential and commercial spaces here in Charlotte, NC and because we see every one of our projects to the end, I have decided to stick to projects that fall within a 35 mile radius of my shop located at 2120 N Church St., located right outside of Uptown Charlotte.  

If you are wondering if your project is the right fit for Fine Grit or would like to get in touch with me, please see the "let's talk" page on the website for further instructions.  I look forward to hearing from you!    

Thanks for checking out Fine Grit!
