My Story

Ethan has an extensive background in supply chain & logistics management while serving in the United States Air Force for 7 years. While active duty, Ethan worked directly with maintenance technicians providing maintenance repair support to C-5, C-17 and KC-10 aircraft. During his military service, Ethan was awarded multiple commendation medals during his tour in Incirlik, Turkey & deployment to the United Arab of Emirates. Ethan earned his Associates (A.S.) in Logistics Management with the Community College of the Air Force & Bachelors (B.A.) in Organizational Leadership through the University of Massachusetts Global.


Since separating from the Air Force, he moved back to his hometown in Wausau to begin a multi-year process of taking over Woodcraft, and slowly, ever-so slowly, allowing his Dad to semi-retire 😊 Ethan has a passion for providing timely customer service, cabinetry design, assisting customers with choosing cabinet & countertop colors & materiel, which helps customers navigate through all of the details of a kitchen or bathroom project. Ethan’s mission is to continue to provide high quality cabinetry, strive for very high customer satisfaction, and continue the Woodcraft legacy in the years to come.


During his free time, Ethan enjoys family time, being out on the lake during the summer, running, biking and watching any Wisconsin sports!
