About the Founder


Hi, My Name is Dwayne Hanson

At the age of 16 I began working with some Scandinavian woodworkers in Minnesota and the Midwest.

From these old world craftsmen I not only learned the art of custom cabinetry but an appreciation of handcrafted quality that has been with me through 25 years in the custom cabinet business, and is one of the basics at Huggy Bear’s Cupboards today.

Because there is no substitute for handcrafted quality, I have refused to build anything less. I have sought to combine quality with affordability and style.

My Promise to You

A Huggy Bear kitchen is individually designed and built to last a lifetime. Our cabinets are all wood construction. The drawers and roll out shelves are crafted from solid quarter-swan white oak (like antique roll-top desks). These are mounted with heavy-duty, easy glide drawer slides. And the European and Traditional styling is beautiful and timeless.

If you are considering an investment in kitchen cabinets, you are about to make an important decision. We have something to match your particular style and you can choose from many features that are offered.

Once you decide on Huggy Bear’s optimum quality your authorized dealer will gladly assist you in the final selection and planning of your very own quality crafted kitchen.
