I am no longer building kitchen cabinets but still show what I used to do. I will still make cabinet pieces for a bath, office, bedrooms, etc. They will still be constructed with domestic maple hardwood plywood. Drawers are solid maple with dovetail joinery. Doors and drawer fronts are made from any solid wood of your choice, stained and finished with conversion varnish.
We also offer optional soft close hinges and under mount drawer guides.
Long years ago, my Dad, a retired engineer of 50 years, raised me with a sense of pride and integrity.
He taught me to treat people with dignity, respect and impressed upon me the significance of character and trust.
These are values that I can now pass on to my family, and carry with me into all of my most important business affairs.
Here are a few commonly asked questions that might help you decide if our custom woodworking fits your specific needs.
Are custom cabinets more expensive than factory cabinets, like the kind I might buy at major retailers such as Home Depot, Lowes, or one of those factory direct chain outlet stores?
This is a question that I am often asked by very many people. There is really no right or wrong answer, but if pressed I would say that factory cabinets if not initially more expensive will cost much more in the long-run. Really, you are dealing with apples and oranges. Although aesthetically they might somewhat appear to be the same, they are two entirely different products. The obvious differences aside, when taking a closer look you will always discover that factory cabinets are made with lower quality materials such as pressboard, MDF, and melamine cores and have a very thin veneer finish. Unfortunately, what that means to the consumer is a far more inferior product that is easily damaged and after a few short years will show greater signs of wear than a custom built plywood cabinet with a hand painted or stained finish. But even putting total cost of ownership aside, dollar for dollar, custom hand crafted cabinets are well within the price range of someone looking to remodel their kitchen, bath, office, or any other area of their home or place of business. In many cases even if the cost isn’t less than that of their factory cabinet counterpart it’s pretty close.
What type of materials do you use in creating any of your cabinetry or trim products?
I use any and all high quality materials and prefer to use only domestic made in AMERICA products. Sure, I could probably save a few bucks by using Chinese imported plywood, but in the big picture, the only thing that would accomplish is a lack of excellence. I believe that my customers deserve better. When starting a job, I personally hand select the lumber specific to that project at a reputable lumber wholesaler.
I use only the finest selections in Cherry, Maple, Birch, Alder, Mahogany, Ash, Oak, Walnut, and all other popular and exotic lumber.
What types of cabinets do you make?
I do custom bath cabinets, mantles, laundry rooms, etc. Show me a photo of something you like, draw me a picture, tell me what you want.
