Jeff Lycett is the owner and lead carpenter behind Evryman Wood, a custom carpentry and trim business taking on projects of all sizes throughout the Chicago area.

But simply dipping into his work in building beautiful handrails, kitchens, and built-ins doesn’t paint the true picture of Jeff. It’s his philosophy and business model—and his deep commitment to community—that truly speak to his mission.
