Chris Dienner - Founder
Born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in the heart of Amish Country, Chris has been working with wood all his life. As a son of a carpenter, he has a lifetime of experience as a businessman and brought that experience with him into the start of what is now known as "Kustom Kabinetry." Having recently passed on the operations of the business to the next generation, his experience continues to prove valuable.
Dathan Stoltzfus - Managing Partner
As a son-in-law to Chris, Dathan has been a part of the company since its beginnings in 1994. He brings that experience into his position as Managing Partner of the custom cabinet business. His goal is to continue to provide the same level of quality, service and the personal touch that are the hallmarks of Kustom Kabinetry's reputation.
Kustom Kabinetry began in 1994 as “The Furniture Barn”, a small shop designed to build only crafts and small furniture. It was only a “sideline” business that supplemented the primary construction business, where we built homes, additions, and garages and also included a good bit of remodeling work.
In its first 2 years, the main outlet for the business was “The Farm” market in Warsaw, where the main products sold were small handcrafted pine items purchased from wholesalers in Pennsylvania. As customers began asking for items not available through the wholesale suppliers in Pennsylvania, we began setting up a shop for custom furniture, where we would make almost any wood furniture item requested by our customers. Increasingly there were those who wanted larger items, large entertainment centers, desks, computer units, etc, that required some creative designing. Eventually there were requests for kitchen cabinets as well. In the fall of 1996 we put the first full time craftsman in the shop, and later that winter had four craftsmen making furniture full-time.
In 2011 the name was changed from The Furniture Barn to Kustom Kabinetry to more accurately reflect the main focus on residential kitchen & bathroom cabinets.
Kustom Kabinetry offers to its customer’s years of experience in woodworking. Chris Dienner, founder and currently our kitchen salesman, grew up working with wood, learning it from his father who was a woodworker nearly all his life. Chris’ grandfather owned and operated a small woodworking shop from approx 1925-1960, and passed on to each succeeding generation a love & talent for woodworking. This love for woodworking has been picked up by several of Chris’ sons, as well as his son-in-law, Dathan Stoltzfus, who has taken on the operation of the Kustom Kabinetry as Managing Partner.
Our reputation is built on the belief that giving a quality product, at a reasonable price, with good service both during and after the sale will create satisfied customers who will keep us in business. We are very thankful to God for blessing our business and providing for us the opportunity to be in the custom cabinet business. God bless you, we hope to meet you at the Kustom Kabinetry soon!
