About Cutting Edge

We provide our clients attentive, one on one service

At Cutting Edge Woodworking, the entire company – from our designers to our expert shop craftsmen and finishers to our installers – is focused on building beautiful products and providing exceptional service. Our senior leadership team combines years of cabinet design and manufacturing experience with business process expertise that assures the highest level of quality and delivery performance. This permeates the culture of the company, where the many different departments that have a hand in building our furniture-quality cabinets collaborate with each other to make sure the job is done right and on-time.

Our Team

Craig Jack


Craig acquired a majority interest in Cutting Edge in late 2020. He has spent 25+ years managing and leading manufacturing companies of all types, and all over the world. Craig brings business process expertise, such as Lean, that complements Tom and the rest of the team’s woodworking expertise (though he did build furniture in high school!). Craig is married, and has three adult boys who were all born in different countries overseas. He enjoys anything that gets him into Colorado mountains, both summer and winter – especially skiing, biking and fly fishing.

Steve Pennisi

Partner, Shop Director

Steve has been with Cutting Edge since 2019, and was associated with the company as a contractor for many years before that. Steve is the one who takes the design shop drawings, and makes sure everything is constructed, finished and installed to meet the client’s expectations. He is a master carpenter, and also has a gift for troubleshooting problems that arise with all of the different machines we have at Cutting Edge. Steve is married and has two teenage daughters who keep him more than busy outside of work.

He is a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point and served for eleven years in some of the Army’s elite infantry units, including the 2nd Ranger Battalion and the 82nd Airborne Division.

He is married and has two daughters. Jim enjoys athletic activities that test his physical fitness, and old Army habit he hasn’t shaken.
