Who We Are

Meet the Team Behind Skill Shop

The Story of The Shop

Jan Swartz, a general contractor, and Martin Cardenas, a skilled woodworker, joined forces to form Skill Shop after working together on several custom projects over the past 10 years. Their shared vision was to create high-quality, custom cabinetry and millwork that could enhance the beauty of any space. Together, they combined their expertise in design, craftsmanship, and construction to build a business that provides exceptional cabinetry solutions for Arizona homes.
