Rex Filion is the owner of Carolina Custom Carvings.
Our parent company, Carolina Custom Cabinets, started in March of 2005, Carolina Custom Carvings launched in Jan 2019.
We specialize in carving large format wall hung artwork, up to 120” x 60”. They are machine carved on our CNC then meticulously hand painted. We focus on OBX and Chesapeake Bay nautical and nature themes. There are many really big rental homes on the Outer Banks and big homes have big walls which need really big artwork!
We moved here from Northern Virginia in the fall of 2004 to purchase Carolina Custom Cabinets, and moved that business from Kitty Hawk to Powells Point. Many suppliers to the construction trade have moved off the beach to Currituck County in the last few years.
Our cabinet business primarily serves the Outer Banks rental home market which is very seasonal. I was looking for another product we could produce on our existing CNC machine that would fill both a market need and keep us busy during our slow summer months. I work with many interior decorators who frequently talked about how difficult it was to find really large artwork for the big rental homes. Our carved artwork fills that need nicely.
I love the manufacturing business, building products that we are proud of and that our customers love. I get to work with great people and make a lot of new friends along the way.
Our employees struggle with health insurance and affordable day care. Finding ways to help them with those issues is a constant challenge.
We produce a unique product you won’t find anywhere else, not on Amazon, eBay or any other source. If you need a really large and unique piece of wall art for your home, office, business lobby or restaurant, we can make it.
The county has many resources willing to help you — use them! Not only can the county provide help in a variety of ways, but they can put you in contact with other local businesses that can help you succeed.
