Mekkelek Custom Woodwork & Cabinetry

about us

You just moved into your new home and realize that to make it the dream house that you had in mind, you’ll need to make a few improvements – update the kitchen or perhaps build the walk-in closet you always wanted.

Have you thought about getting some custom built-ins done? You looked but couldn’t find a reputable contractor that does home remodeling projects without relying on off-the-shelf solutions? Whatever you’re looking for, we have the contracting and construction experience to meet the demands of any bathroom or kitchen remodel, and home renovation project — no matter the size or scope.

Hello, I am György Oláh. My friends call me George. I started mekkelek custom woodwork & cabinetry in 2002 because I wanted to design and make quality cabinets for clients who request nothing less then superior construction quality. Having grown up among master carpenters and craftsmen South of Budapest, Hungary, I learned the lasting value of precision craftsmanship early. My intent in establishing this company in the Triangle area was to provide a refined level of design and woodworking to both residential and commercial clients.

By bringing together the skills of a select group of creative, highly qualified and experienced craftsmen, beautifully executed solutions to the most challenging projects have been achieved. When reviewing some of the custom cabinetry and superior woodworking featured on this website, we hope you will find our approach to design and our experience in exquisitely blending a wide range of materials to be a prefect fit for projects you may be considering.

    Sarah Feldt from Chapel Hill, NC

  • George is one of the best carpenters in Raleigh. He made my entertainment center just like I imagined it and better. I absolutely love the finished piece and am happily recommending him to my family, friends and coworkers.

    Richard Horvath from Raleigh, NC

  • These guys did an amazing job. They ripped out our old kitchen, developed a beautiful new custom design for the space, and finished the construction with truly magnificent and beautifully precise craftsmanship. Best of all, the work was done on time and within budget. My wife could not be more pleased. I strongly recommend these folks.

    John Davis from Raleigh, NC

  • mekkelek custom woodwork & cabinetry has done our home office and we have some pretty odd corners in that space. They do excellent work! I liked that they did what they said they were going to do and they were on time with it. I don’t think I have ever worked with anybody who has that kind of a work ethic as George does. He gets things done, no matter what! Meticulous work, attention to detail, professionalism, excellent pricing! I would work with them again in a heart beat!

    Amy Ballard from Cary, NC

  • At his first visit George was able to point out the areas that could be improved upon to optimize my living space as I live in a small cottage. Not only was he able to give me an accurate estimate but he also provided me with drawings that would let me envision the end result better, even before I had signed the contract. I knew that a lot of work had already gone into this alone, so I knew the end result would be fantastic. And, it was! I would recommend mekkelek custom woodwork & cabinetry anytime.

    Ingrid Baumann from Cary, NC

We are so lucky to have such talent right here in the Triangle - you don't have to go to Europe to find such fantastic craftsmanship. I am recommending them to all my neighbors.

    Lee Davis from Raleigh, NC
