Chris Hensel

Chris Hensel – Owner & Principle Designer

Hello, my name is Chris Hensel. I founded Dovetail Kitchen Designs in 2011 with the intent of bringing superior design services to my customers.  My goal is to provide my client-homeowners, contractors, and business owners-with creative designs tailored to their personal style and goals.

With over 20 years of industry experience, I bring customers a unique combination of exceptional design, along with extensive construction knowledge as a licensed builder.  This skill set, along with our unique process, allows our clients to receive superior results each and every time.  I feel that to best serve my clients it is important to offer service that starts with high quality design, transitions into fine craftsmanship, and finishes with exceptional results!

To help achieve this, I regularly attend conferences and seminars to advance my knowledge in the design and building fields, and to learn about the latest products available in the market.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife Sarah and our four boys.  Being avid outdoorsman, when time allows I enjoy getting out into the woods or on the water.  I also enjoy cooking, travel, and woodworking.


At Dovetail Kitchen Designs we constantly strive to provide high quality, personalized, and attainable designs to clients in Central Minnesota and surrounding areas.  We believe that the building process is fun, and after a project is completed we want our clients to think so too.
