I grew up in a family of woodworkers and, as a child, used scraps of wood from my dad’s job sites to create toy boats, skateboards, tree houses, and more. If it could be made with wood, I built it.
As an adult, I resolved to turn my passion into a business. I started Hein’s Wood Werks in Newport Beach, CA in 1978. For 25 years, I worked in California with fantastic and creative clients as well as some of the most respected designers and builders in the area.
Though my business was a success, it felt like something was missing. I decided it was time to move to a place where I could enjoy the outdoors and a richer quality of life. That place was Bend, Oregon. I made my move in 2003 and have been creating furniture and cabinetry for clients throughout Central Oregon ever since.
Today, my dedication and enthusiasm for woodworking are as strong as ever. I look forward to hearing your ideas and turning them into a reality.
Whether the client is a homeowner, designer, contractor or builder, I feel communication and developing personal and professional relationships, along with fine craftsmanship and artistry, is the key to producing excellent products.

"Last fall Larry Hein built custom cabinets and window seats for my new home in Bend. I am thrilled with the results. The cabinets look like they are part of the original cabinetry. They all have huge slide-out drawers on rollers and they all work flawlessly. I will definitely call Larry the next time I need cabinetry work done."
"Working with Larry and design and stain was great because he delivered exactly what I had in mind!! His work is beautiful and I frequently get compliments on the pieces he did! 10 Plus all day long!!"
"I have worked with Larry on a variety of projects from simple to complex, and have always found his craftsmanship and attention to detail to be superb. His cabinet work on my vintage Airstream trailer has become the standard by which Airstream renovations are measured! I would, and have recommended Hein’s Wood Werks to anyone looking for quality work, delivered on time and within budget, by one of the friendliest craftsman in the business!"
I love Larry's work. He listens to my ideas, comes up with some suggestions of his own and the results have been beautiful and practical. Our built in entertainment center is beautiful and is now the centerpiece of our front room, complete with doors that hide the TV when not in use. When I purchased a new refrigerator that was too big, he came to my rescue in one day and removed the upper before delivery then rebuilt the cabinet within a couple of weeks. I have called Larry back for three jobs in my home so I would highly recommend him. Go with Larry, you will very glad you did, his pricing is competitive, his quality superior, and he is a easy to work with."
