Our History

Expression In Wood was founded in 1978 out of Darrell Covey’s garage in Pasadena CA.  Darrell’s exceptional workmanship and integrity quickly garnered him a solid reputation in the cabinet industry and throughout the San Gabriel Valley.  Soon EIW grew out of that garage into a humble 1000 square foot shop, which quickly expanded into a neighboring space totaling 4500 square feet.  Soon after EIW settled into a 5000 square foot building located in Monrovia CA.  Over the next 19 years the company grew it’s reputation as well as client base, and began branching out into Los Angles and Orange County.  In 2008 EIW left that building in Monrovia and purchased it’s own facility in La Verne CA.  Along with the manufacturing shop the 20,000 square foot facility has a design center, showroom and full service finishing department.  Currently EIW is one the largest High End Custom Residential Cabinet Companies in the San Gabriel Valley and services Southern California from San Diego to Santa Barbara County and beyond.   While always maintaining a commitment to customer service, EIW takes great pride in the craftsmanship and design of every job.
