In 1980, Steve Schmucker began “Steven E. Schmucker Painting” as a means of paying for college. Even in its very humble beginnings, Schmucker Painting focused on providing a consistently high-quality product in a professional and timely manner, with the unique benefit of providing extra care and service many customers did not expect. It is this practice of providing caring, quality, and personalized service that has taken second to none. This business has enjoyed Steve’s service, practices, and loyalty to his customers for over three decades.
Fifteen years after Schmucker Painting began, the first inklings of adding woodworking to the business began to take shape, with the purchase of commercial woodworking equipment and a modest shop being created in the basement of Steve Schmucker’s home. It took fifteen more years — plus two moves to accommodate the need for a larger shop space — to birth what is now Cedars Woodworking & Renovations.
“…they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon”
Cedars are solid, strong trees that grow to great heights, in some cases as tall as 120 feet and 30 feet in diameter. They are vital, immovable, have great integrity, and are resistant to rot and decay. It was this description of the cedar tree that inspired the name, Cedars Woodworking & Renovations. At Cedars, we strive to emulate the characteristics of the cedar tree. We have been and will remain a company of people who are solid and strong in character, vital and full of integrity, striving to do whatever we can to exude these traits to each other, and especially to our customers.
As a team, we commit to the following standards:
From our workshop in historic Lancaster, PA, we have worked on projects throughout south central Pennsylvania. This includes homeowners and businesses in Lancaster, York, Dauphin, and Lebanon counties.
The success of each project begins with a team that is dedicated to working collaboratively with each client and their dream.

If you are in the Lancaster area, we encourage you to stop by our showroom and workshop in downtown Lancaster. We are located on West Fulton Street (between Walnut Street and Marietta Avenue, and just a block from Lancaster Regional Medical Center).
If you visit our office during business hours, we would be glad to discuss your renovation or woodworking project. We can also give you a tour of our woodworking shop, so you can see the design and construction phases that we go through.
