Athena Industries owner Sean Temmerman has been building stunning custom cabinets and furniture in Calgary for nearly 30 years.
Drawn to the artistry and possibilities of woodworking, Sean, who grew up in Calgary, started his cabinetmaker apprenticeship in 1988. He began his career in cabinet making at a high-end commercial furniture manufacturer that catered to international clients. There, Sean had the good fortune to be trained by some of the best German, Swiss, English and Canadian cabinetmakers in Calgary, possibly Canada.
In 2001, Sean opened Athena Industries so he could give homeowners that same level of high quality custom woodworking. He wanted people to be able to outfit their homes with built-in wall units sized to display a treasured vase, tables with enough room for the whole family, and custom cabinets tailored to make drawers and cupboards as functional and beautiful as possible.

Clients love the striking attention to detail, artistry and lifespan of our craftsmanship as well as the way we work.
Sean, the owner, is an amazing woodworker. His attention to detail and skill at what he does is rare. I have used him for two custom kitchen projects and furniture in two different houses. Excellent quality in materials and workmanship. I get compliments from everyone who sees it.
In addition to our expertise, at Athena, we take pride in bringing professionalism to every home, accommodating other trades workers and building lifelong relationships with clients.
Athena Industries is based in Calgary, and we work on kitchen renovation projects and individual pieces in homes throughout the city, but our reputation for quality and craftsmanship has brought us to projects across Alberta and BC.
