In 1977, Ira K. Hertsgaard founded Ira’s Custom Cabinets and Furniture on his family farmstead. At that time he was the sole employee and owner, taking raw materials and molding them into functional pieces of art. Ira quickly built a name in the custom cabinetry field in the Red River Valley for his quality work and honest approach.
Although the name was shortened to Ira’s Custom Cabinets in 2000, we’ve never changed the principles that made the original company successful. The shop is still located on the farm-site near Kindred, ND where Ira grew up. There are now 17 dedicated woodworkers who carry on the Ira’s reputation for beautiful, distinctive cabinetry as well as personalized customer service and unique custom projects. Our state-of-the-art equipment enhances our space, but will never replace the individual craftsmanship of a hand worked item.
