Meet Master Artisan Frank Crescente

Frank Crescente had long had a passion for creating beautiful wood furniture. Previously a licensed electrician, Frank took a leap of faith and made a career change when he established WoodVisions, Inc., in Jacksonville Beach in 2005.

He was confident that his unique furniture designs and skilled craftsmanship would be a welcome alternative to mass-produced furniture. Frank was right. Home owners, commercial architects and interior designers have provided a steady stream of work for unique handcrafted residential and commercial furniture.

Six years and a move to Port St. Lucie later, Frank can look back and smile. “I had been working with wood for many years… I wanted to make furniture that would be available to people who appreciate good design and  craftsmanship. I believe that God has blessed me, and this company. I’m very fortunate that I am now able to live my dream.”

Jacksonville Beach residents and visitors may not realize when they dine at the popular Salt Life Food Shack, they are sitting on custom WoodVisions chairs, designed and individually hand-crafted specifically for Salt Life by Frank. And those who “belly up to the bar” at Taverna may not know that Frank designed and crafted the bar, the bar stools, and the tables and chairs at this trendy San Marco eatery.

WoodVisions, Inc. has been commissioned to design and build all the furniture for The Pier Cantina and Sandbar, a popular eatery in Jacksonville Beach, FL. This entire restaurant has been built from all reclaimed wood from a parking garage downtown, including the 90 foot bar and bar stools, tables and chairs, and all of the mill work.

WoodVisions is currently working on a new dining concept called Copper Tap House. This beer joint in Jacksonville will house all my latest designs including tables that flip up out of the way for the late night party. These tables will be copper and resin poured, and they look incredible. Come check them out!

A majority of the furniture that is constructed at WoodVisions is a unique, one-of-a-kind design – created, developed and hand-crafted on-site by owner Frank Crescente.
