Custom Wood Design, Inc. was started by my father, Philip Luckett Sr. and Rory Melching, in 1979 in a small Miami shop. I worked for them every summer as a helper and watched the business grow. Rory passed away suddenly and my father continued the business. At the age of 19 I joined the United States Navy. After my Navy career ended I joined my father in the business. We grew the company to 30 employees. Once he retired, I relocated to the Smoky Mountains for a better life for my family and to slow We opened a 5,500 hundred square foot shop in Gatlinburg. My son and grandson now work with me and we are continuing the tradition my father started. We are truly blessed to have this opportunity to work on projects that will last a lifetime. We are very proud to be able to provide beautiful work at a fair price. We can't compete with the big box stores and they can't compete with us.
