Morning Star Woodworks, Inc. was first established as a sole proprietorship in 1983 by Daniel & Denise Hammond. The company produces quality custom cabinets and millwork for the residential and commercial markets. Production began in a rented 4000 square foot building, and in 1990 we purchased land in the Cloquet Industrial Park and built a new 6400 square foot building. Morning Star was incorporated in 1998 and has since expanded their facility to 12,300 square feet.

Cabinetry and custom woodwork for any room in the home or office have always been the main products the company produces. In the last couple of years, however, we have branched out into selling many related products such as interior and exterior doors, stairways, and mouldings. By offering these other products along with our custom capabilities, we are fast becoming a "one-stop" supplier for all the interior woodworking needs of our clients.

The President and CEO, Daniel Hammond, runs the business and oversees three managers: Andrea Kiehl-Sales & Design, Jason Reeves-Production & I.T., and Alan Bubb-Shop Foreman. Denise Hammond oversees the bookkeeping. In the seven-year period from 1990 to 1997, production doubled and by the year 2001, production had double once again. With its latest growth and development Morning Star stands ready to break the one million dollar mark in annual production.

Morning Star has always been on the cutting edge of technology and functionality. The company purchased its first computer in 1985, well ahead of the growth the personal computer. Morning Star was one of the first companies to offer a computer aided design service which provides customers the opportunity to step inside their project and preview their design and changes within their home, even before the work on them begins. This feature now has become the industry standard. In 2004 first appeared online. We are now currently in the process of upgrading our manufacturing equipment for increased productivity and specialization.
