My mid-century modern console and ming coffee table are absolutely stunning. The simple, clean lines of the design allow the premium wood and superb craftsmanship to shine through.
I have been equally impressed with Belak Woodworking’s customer service. Nick Hadzhiev was totally responsive, provided immediate feedback, and was timely with each and every step in the process. Nick provided “in progress” photos without hesitation and controlled the shipping process as if he were the recipient rather than the vendor.

Belak Woodworking was quick to respond to my initial request for a custom made, platform bed for a king-sized, latex/memory foam mattress. I sent him my ideas and specifications along with a picture to give him idea of what I liked and needed. I then went to his workshop to discuss wood & material choices & project details. I took home samples and a rough prototype of a corner section of the bed.
In my opinion, the bed is a beautiful masterpiece that is worthy of heirloom status. The craftsmanship & artistry surpassed my expectations. You can tell that Nick takes a tremendous amount of pride and love in his projects. He was very helpful, knowledgeable & patient during the decision-making process, the questions and scheduling. We ended up choosing a simple but solid & sturdy design, walnut wood with satin finish. The inner frame portion which you don’t see once the mattress is in place is made of ash, but stained to look like the more expensive walnut. The outside edges are rounded off. I would trust Belak Woodworking to provide top quality construction & design at an honest price.

Let me start off by letting you know that a friend who helped me put it together has requested that if I die I leave it to him. It’s beautiful, the stain was exactly as the sample I supplied you and it closely resembles the coffee table. Rest assured that your excellent work has not been praised a thousand times already. I’m so lucky I found you.

I’ve hired Belak Woodworking to make four custom end tables and refinish a mahogany coffee. I plan to hire Belak for multiple future projects including kitchen cabinet refresh, a toy chest, and additional furniture pieces.
The reasons I recommend this company are:
(1) Unparalleled in craftsmanship and finish. Belak makes real wood furniture with old world artisan techniques. If you’re fed-up with the melamine and MDF crap sold in all the box stores, this is the place to go.
(2) The owner, Nick, is honest, fair, and has great design sense
(3) The work is completed on schedule and in a timely manner
(4) The price is the price, no surprises
(5) MADE IN THE USA (not in China)
If you want to support the local community, design a signature piece of furniture and have it made from real wood, this is the place to go.

The Ming coffee table you created for us is absolutely beautiful! You did an amazing job, and we would recommend your work to anyone. My grandfather was a carpenter, and he would have been very impressed with your craftsmanship.The Ming table is beautifully designed – it’s both contemporary and classic, and I love the proportions. You are a true artisan.

In summary, Nick is a true craftsmen. He evaluated a number of ideas and sample pictures for custom design then provided something better than we imagined. He was a true partner in creating the table designs and the tables look fantastic!
Additional info: In addition to cosmetic table ideas, Nick provided significant feedback regarding structural considerations. For example, for the large walnut dining table, we found an existing veneer table design that we wanted to customize. Since used solid walnut, a much heavier table top, Nick recommended a number of changes to make the table structurally sound (e.g., hidden metal support beams) and dissuaded us from a few items that wouldn’t work well for solid would. He also added a few cosmetic features around the interior of the table legs.
I would highly recommend Nick for custom design and build projects. He took pride in the workmanship, he was reasonably priced and he is already starting a new projects for me (a custom maple desk).

Nick did a wonderful job updating my kitchen. Nick build a custom island and painted all of the cabinets, a rich, modern white and it looks brand new! The island included (a) custom design to accommodate the current plumbing location that created a challenge for the new island location, (b) notched interior features that received compliments from our plumber and granite contractor because they provided structural support and made it easier for them to do their job and (c) installed metal supports to accommodate a sizable granite overhang.
Nick seems passionate about doing great work and is the only contractor that took his shoes off in our house. This may seem like a small item, but he was very careful to not damage my hardwood floors during installation, was very neat, etc. and all of the work was completed within the agreed upon time frame. I would definitely work with Nick again!

The vanities arrived and they are absolutely beautiful and exactly what I wanted, I could not be any happier. Thank you so much for all the hard work and time that you spent making them perfect. The quality of your work is phenomenal- you are truly a master craftsman – I am so impressed and pleased. I am happy to act as a reference if you ever need one as you made this process so easy and worked with me along the way (even when I was having such a hard time deciding what it was I wanted). From the bottom of my heart I thank you! It has been such a pleasure working with you and I would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends or family or have you make anything for me again in the future.

Nick did a great job on the coffee table for me. It is beautiful, well made and just like I wanted it. I got the table a week before the estimated finish date, which was great. I would use him again and definitely recommend him to a friend.
Anna G., St. Louis, MO
Nick did a great job to make sure he understood the details and kept me informed of the progress. He even gave me a few shipping options to choose. The nightstands are a piece of art. The attention to detail and the quality of the craftsmanship is outstanding. I am honored to call these my own!
Martin R., Dallas, TX
Overall, this was nothing but the best work piece with Nick, owner of Belak Woodworking. The efficient communication of ideas, input, and feedback was all done in a timely manner. The coffee table itself has done wonders in my living room every morning as I get up to go work. I will gladly keep Belak Woodworking in mind for any desirable projects in the future. Thanks again.!

Nick did an absolutely wonderful job, the bookshelf was beautiful. He was so good to keep me updated on his progress, and he was so easy to work with!!
Ryan and Brook, Lawrence, KS
We talked with the maker before the construction began and developed a certain level of expectations, but the final bed either met or beat every expectation we had. Just phenomenal craftsmanship, down to the smallest details that we hadn’t even thought of. Nick even came to our house and installed the bed himself, making sure everything was of the quality standards he set out for himself. To say we highly recommend Belak Woodworking is an understatement. Just blown away by how much we love our bed!
Anna and Chris G., Overland Park, KS
Nick built a ladder for us for a loft that is at the entry way of the house and we are very happy with the craftsmanship. We were going on vacation and Nick worked around our schedule to have it finished and installed before we left. His workmanship is not only sturdy but very aesthetic as well. The ladder is the focal point of the living area and we are extremely happy and would recommend him to our friends. We will call on him again when we need something done right, study and beautiful. Thank you so much Nick.
Brian T., Lenexa, KS
I came to Nick with a rough idea of what I was looking for, and he was able to turn my ideas into a workable solution. His work was outstanding. His prices were fair, upfront and he worked with me to get the best products for my money. I would recommend Nick and Belak Woodworking for anyone wanting the best.

The bamboo table and the benches are more gorgeous than I had ever imagined. You are an amazing carpenter. Thank you so much!
Christa W., Kansas City, KS
I have my kitchen dining set built by Belak Woodworking and I am extremely satisfied with the result. The table and two benches I wanted in white and it worked just great with the rest of my furniture. The whole set looks wonderful and most important, it is very functional. I highly recommend Belak Woodworking’s service, the work they do is high quality and proper on time result!
Bethany B., Overland Park, KS
Thank you so much for the bathroom vanities you made for us! What a difference they make! Thanks for working with me on a custom design to maximize storage and for the quick turnaround. Your pride in your work is very evident and we are pleased with the result!
Rogene F., Kansas City, KS
I am writing to express how pleased I am with the work that Nick Hadzhiev of Belak Woodworking did for me.
The task I presented him with was difficult My aunt had been given three large and very ornate legs from a unrepairable baby grand piano. She was unsure of how to use them. My suggestion was that they might be used to make a triangular shaped table. I then contacted Nick to see if the idea was possible. He sat down with me to discuss and sketch several options. I gave him the “go ahead”, allowing him much artistic license. When I went to pick up the finished project, I was overjoyed. His workmanship was superb.
It’s the most beautiful table I’ve ever seen!
I want to thank you for the fine work you performed on my sail boat. The way you cut down the cabinet face to accommodate the new microwave and then re-sized the drawers to fit the new reduced size was outstanding. And the new counter top, with the detailed work for the ice box opening (and the matching laminate on the 2 tables) totally exceeded my expectations. My boat has received numerous compliments on the reworked galley and I have been sure to recommend you to other captains. I will be getting your input on a future project to re-engineer the hatches from a wood and Plexiglas arrangement to all wood construction. Again, thanks for your skilled craftsmanship.
Phil W., Leawood, KS
Our expectations were exceeded when we saw the custom made cabinets for our garage installed and ready for use. The quality, craftsmanship, installation, and appearance of the cabinets are excellent and add value to our home.
Mariya C., Leawood, KS
My last order for Belak Woodworking LLC was for office furniture and entertainment center. The finished products exceeded my expectations with their quality. I am very happy with the result! I’ve had before some finishing touches done in my kitchen and bedroom furniture by the same craftsman and the updates I’ve got are a proof that the company works in professional and timely manner. I will highly recommend Belak for custom top-notch quality work.
