Our Beginning with Custom Woodwork
The Burkhart Company was founded in 1977 by Tom Burkhart in Louisville, Kentucky. Tom always had a passion for custom woodworking, having picked up his first power saw at the age of nine. After studying woodworking at the Penland School of Craft, Tom turned his passion into a business. What started as a hobby and side projects, eventually turned into the Burkhart company, providing Louisville with the finest quality craftsmanship and custom woodwork across the city.
Tom originally opened up shop in the basement of a rented house and continued to expand his reach over his next three locations. The Burkhart Company has truly thrived over the years with the addition of more employees of varying backgrounds, all contributing to the success of the company. We are eager to continue our growth and expansion across the Louisville and Southern Indiana area for decades to come.
WE CAN BUILD YOUR DREAM KITCHEN
A HISTORICAL BUILDING
Our current location is in the Shelby Park neighborhood. Originally built in 1886 as a woolen mill, the historic building was used for production of the Falls City Jeans Company. It is now registered as a national historic building. What makes this space such a great location for us at Burkhart is the prime spot in the heart of Louisville. This historic building represents our traditional style of woodwork we specialize in, with added antique inspiration. On any given day, you can find plenty of natural light hitting the natural hardwood floors in our spacious production room.
