Please peruse just a few of the testimonials Mike has received from satisfied customers, most returning for repeat business, saying a lot for the quality & integrity of the work from Mike Lewis & Waterway Woodworks.



For a craftsman, I would think that the gold standard in measure of quality is repeat business. If this is the case, then I think the amount of work Mike Lewis has done for my family in our last two residences, spanning the last eight years, speaks volumes. Mike has designed, constructed and installed the cabinetry for one entire custom kitchen, two entire custom bathrooms and five different custom built-in cabinets, and one formal office, across these two homes. We are forever re-doing and re-modeling and very much look forward to our next cabinetry project with Mike!

If you are considering custom cabinetry in your home, we would be more than happy to welcome you into our home by appointment to see the quality and detail of Mike’s craftsmanship first hand.

Our kitchen needed an upgrade, but we had very little knowledge of how to go about it or even what it was we wanted. We were looking for a whole new look at a reasonable cost.

Mike came to our house and the minute he walked in the door you could tell how much vision he had.  He quickly made suggestions that were minor in cost but changed the feel of our home.  A simple widening of the door into the kitchen opened up the whole house.

Mike took over the contacts and arrangements with other contractors that were needed to complete the job. He custom made cabinet doors and the entire island. Everyone that sees his work is amazed at the quality and craftsmanship.

We highly recommend Mike for any remodeling projects. His work is excellent but more important than that is the pleasure of working with someone that so obviously takes pride in their work and will work with you make sure you are happy. We love our kitchen!

Mike has completed about 10 projects for me over the past few years both at my home in historic Downtown Wilmington and at my condo at Wrightsville Beach. These projects have included built-ins and free standing furniture. Every project was completed with great satisfaction. The quality of materials, workmanship, attention to detail, and Mike's eye for design, has been outstanding on each project. 

Mike is a true artist who is also an expert craftsman.

Mike was great to work with in the design and creation of two custom tables for my contemporary beach home. Understanding my rough sketch of what I had in mind, he was able to transform it into a beautiful design and hand create two stunning tables using arched legs and Spalted & Hard Maple not typically seen.

They are works of art and are often admired by guests in our home. I love them. Mike is highly skilled and an excellent choice if you are looking for someone to create some custom furniture for you.

We hired Mike Lewis during our renovation in 2007. Mike came over on night and we told him what we needed. He asked for some paper and in about an hour he sketched out the plan and pictures of what the cabinets would look like. All of course were built from scratch.  A few day later we called him and told him we wanted to add an island in the kitchen,. He said, no problem and designed that for us in a couple of days.

We were so happy with the kitchen design that we had him build new cabinets in both bathrooms for us. He even built a 13 ft mahogany top for us. We would highly recommend Mike Lewis. He is easy to work with and does a solid professional job and cares about the quality of his work. It was a pleasure to work with Mike. We will use him again on our next house.

Mike created a beautiful teak vanity for our Master bath. We have been impressed with the quality and craftsmanship since the day it was delivered. He really understood the design aesthetic we were trying to achieve and his attention to detail is what makes the piece really nice.

Mike is truly a talented guy and a pleasure to work with.

My wife and I had just moved down from New Hampshire and fell in love with the charm and friendly people of the Wilmington area.  Someone we met at our new church had heard we were looking for someone to do some remodeling along with a few pieces of custom cabinetry and furniture for our new home.  I needed a display case for my collection of primitive folk art as well as some serious home office and kitchen updates.  They recommended Mike Lewis of Waterway Woodworks.  Although I did not know Mike and had never heard of this company, I decided to give him a try.  We could not have been happier with the results. 

Mike was a pleasure to work with and was the perfect mix of listening to my needs and giving me some suggestions for new ideas.  I have to admit, we were not always easy to work with as I had some set ideas for what I wanted. Mike did an amazing job of getting my ideas into reality and with some amazing choices of wood!  Love his work.  I would not hesitate in recommending him for this kind of work.  On top of that, he's a great guy and funny to boot.  Tack on HONEST and you cant lose.   Thanks, Mike!

I needed a custom cabinet/display to be completed in two weeks and could not find anyone in the area that could get this done before my expo date.  I found Mike and told him my issues and he actually came through for me, saving the day.  I'm not sure how he was able to balance his pending work with my immediate needs but I'm glad I found someone that could figure out a way.  While I'm no longer living in Wilmington, now in the Triangle, I've actually sought Mike's help on several other projects, mainly because I've been unable to find someone HERE that can better the attention I received from Mike.  Highly recommended.
