Robert Wieczynski is a craftsman who is a perfectionist to a fault. As a teenager growing up in Poland, where resources were scarce, he was able to work in electronics industry, fixing television and radio equipment. Having saved some money he invested into a small wood-shop, where he began his adventure with woodwork and furniture building. His first project, as a teenager, was a striking dining room furniture set: a wooden tile-top kitchen table with a set of six beautifully carved wooden chairs (two decades later, the set is still in use by his family in Poland).
Robert completed his high-school education in Torun, the city where Nicolaus Copernicus (also known to have been a perfectionist) was born. Since Poland was a developing country with limited possibilities for talented youth, Robert decided to move to the country of the greatest opportunities, the United States, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from Mercer University. During his studies, in order to make ends meet he apprenticed himself to a master tile installer. Tile work was Robert’s first trade. His strive for perfection and the need to perform the work well and in a timely fashion were in high demand from the start. One referral led to another and Robert built a reputation as not only an excellent craftsman but also a person that homeowners wanted to work with.
Since most tile work is done in kitchens and bathrooms, Robert often found himself working alongside custom cabinet builders. Seeing that custom cabinetry was a natural extension to the work he was already doing, he started working with a local custom cabinet builder and learned the trade quickly and with great skill. He was a natural! After all, custom woodwork is where his path started two decades earlier. Robert’s first major project was at his own house in Atlanta: the kitchen cabinets. The results were stunning. These cabinets became his first sample work that would be shown to potential clients.
Years later, and with many kitchen and bath remodels completed, the business has grown into a full- service remodeling company that covers anything from a basic one-room upgrade to a whole house renovation. Robert’s reliability, hard work, strives for perfection and high customer satisfaction are a staple and pride of Copernicus Home Creations.
