“Nick was fantastic to work with from start to finish. He was extremely punctual and reliable. He created a beautiful custom built-in book shelf and cabinet for a large living room wall. The lead time was very acceptable and the installation was seamless. His quote was reasonable and his craftsmanship was exceptional.” – Jennifer H., Leawood, KS
CARPENTRY + DESIGN
Design + Process
As Belak strives to build products following supreme quality standards, our main focus has been and will always be on the customer’s experience. We follow a process that will identify your needs and preferences. To preserve your excitement about buying a handcrafted furniture, we will guide you through every step assuring the final product is exactly what you imagine.
The first step is to identify overall needs and preferences in regards with the inquiry. At this phase we would like to understand the general design and the function of the piece, the type of material and finish you have in mind. You will be encouraged to share a photo example, a drawing, and/or a sketch of a product that you like. Be resourceful, use digital or hard copy examples to show us your vision.
Once the design concept is agreed upon, we will provide an estimate for price and turnaround time for the project. Before preparation for building phase begin, 66% up-front payment is required. When the project is complete we will invite you to visit or will provide you pictures of the finished product.
In preparation for delivery, we will build a custom crate for the new handcrafted piece. When we receive the remaining 34% of the payment, your brand new furniture will be on its way to your home.
Materials + Finishes
A desired custom furniture design can be achieved only with materials and finishes in great quality. Before providing a solution consulting to our customers, we first listen to what they like when it comes to the type of material and finish.

Belak’s custom furniture and cabinets are finished with low chemical and particle emissions products for use indoors. As we are passion about preserving the environment, the lacquers we use are Greengard Certified products.
