Dave Hayes

Workshop Manager

Dave Hayes, Workshop Manager at Lovewood Studio, Precision’s custom cabinet shop division, has 19 years of experience passionately crafting custom cabinetry for clients in Birmingham. His determination, problem-solving skills, commitment to quality, and a sharp eye for detail have established him as a sought-after cabinet maker in our market.
For the past eight years, Dave owned and operated Lovewood Studios as an independent business. Joshua Dean, President of Precision, and Dave have a history as former co-workers and as longtime friends. After much discussion, Joshua and Dave agreed that folding Lovewood Studios into Precision Homecrafters would allow 1. the cabinet business to grow, 2. Precision to better serve clients and 3. Dave to focus on what he loves, crafting custom cabinetry. The deal closed and he came on board in 2023.
Dave shares Precision’s view that tending to employee well-being creates better outcomes for the employee, the business, and the client. Now, with less administrative workload on him, Dave is looking forward to a better personal work-life balance. He plans on exploring new hobbies and spending more time enjoying local live music, savoring good meals at restaurants, and reenergizing himself in the wilderness.
