Mel Black – Apprentice

I’ve worked for Jerry for over four years as his apprentice.  I enjoy woodworking because I love to create things and use my imagination to bring wood-crafting projects from conception to reality.

My passion is not only in wood but painting and designing and implementing unique projects for my customers.

I am very skilled in all facets of woodworking but I get much joy from working with Jerry as we work together on wood-crafting projects that turn out to be amazing pieces that exceed our customer’s expectations!

All in all, I love what I do at Wood Craft Indy!

Custom Finishing & Refinishing

Wood Craft Indy creates high-quality wood projects whether it be custom finishing or refinishing, different types of furniture including tables and chairs, as well as kitchens and flooring. 


Wood Craft Indy has perfected a “one-of-a-kind” technique for custom painted furniture. Each color is specially routed so when the piece is completed, it looks like a true work of art with no paint brush marks or overlapping.


Wood Craft Indy will restore your favorite family, furniture heirloom into “like new condition.” We have restored hundreds of furnishings including fine antiques.

Armoire Project

“The armoire is truly a work of art.  I never thought I’d give up the closet, but these are just perfect!  The clothes can be organized in a very neat and tidy fashion, and the armoires are gorgeous furniture that makes the bedroom look very classy.  I’m thrilled with the final work product!”

Custom Painted Table

“Our table you created for us is a beautiful setting for dining that incorporates the style and colors of our home.  It looks fantastic and blends with all of our decors.  Great job!”

Custom Window Seats

“Our window seats Jerry custom made for us are so beautiful and have extra storage: a great combination and a wonderful project.  Each of the four seats has the same base color scheme, but the tops have been individualized between artistic paint with glass tops, granite, and a built-in cushion on the third.  It looks amazing!  Thank you so much!”

Custom Staircase Project

When we moved into our house in 2005, we discovered that one of the 14 steps leading to the 2nd floor was 1.5 inches too high.  We hired Wood Craft Indy to tear them out and correct the issue (people routinely tripped going up the steps).  The job they did was outstanding.  They ripped out the old steps and actually corrected a couple of other errors the original builders had made.  The finished job was beautiful!  It consisted of many handcrafted individual pieces that were masterfully constructed together.  We are glad that we hired them to do this job and would do so again!

Trellis Wall

Jerry made an outstanding. 3 section stand alone trellis with 8 foot sections. Made from cedar posts and 2×2 cedar rails and styles with hundreds of screws making for an extremely solid structure! The painted finish was outstanding with a unique finish to hide the screws. Great craftsmanship and a talented team to work with. A great pleasure all around!! – Tom V.

Custom Storage Cabinet

Jerry built a custom storage cabinet for our master bathroom countertop.  I had a vision and he made it happen!  Custom-mixed the stain to match and added custom trim to the cabinet to match.  Made our builder-grade bathroom vanity look custom.  I highly recommend Jerry’s quality work.  So rare to find someone that is willing to do the smaller jobs these days. – Julie W.

Custom Storm Door

Jerry and his team designed and built a custom storm door for the front of our 100 year old home. The results are fantastic! Equally as important as the results was Jerry’s focus on communicating with us and ensuring that we were satisfied with the final product. He’s a true professional, and he’s passionate about his work.– David S.

Custom Bar, Sliding Door, Hutch, Cigar Table, Park Bench & Antique Side Table

Jerry is the ultimate craftsman. He has been able to create beautiful works of art for our home from just a simple idea. We wanted a bar that held all liquor bottles, one that moved on wheels, had plenty of storage, and a butcher block top. It turned out better than I could have hoped. My husband and I are so pleased; It will be a piece to hand down to future generations. It was built to last and we will be able to enjoy it for years to come.

We have other items he made as well. Sliding doors with a modern twist that are our entry to the sunroom, an old hutch my mother gave me was turned into our entryway showpiece, a cherry table with my husbands favorite cigar labels for his office, a refinished park bench from my grandparents, and an antique side table. All done with great care and excellent detail. – Julie A.

Custom Staircase

Jerry Ward is an outstanding craftsman and skilled designer. He has done several large products for our home over the years. His showcase project in our house is the staircase that begins in our entryway and extends to the second floor. He completely removed the existing staircase and designed a high quality wooden staircase and hand cut railings. It is the centerpiece of our home and the most beautiful wood installation we have seen. Jerry has also installed custom cabinetry in two of our bathrooms, to include a total renovation of the en suite bath. His custom work is artistry. – Amy R.
