Built-in craftsman cabinets

Built with 3/4 maple ply and a solid face frame construction, we don't use particle board on any of our cabinets. Like the historical craftsman built-in cabinets the doors are hand made in my woodworking shop in the shaker style. Paint grade cabinets can have a brushed on primer then they are typically finished in place by your painter after install.

Estimating & Installation: Paint grade custom cabinets can usually be estimated during a site visit. The location is measured onsite then the layout is calculated and the units are built in the shop. They are sanded and prepared for paint and can have a brushed on primer applied. Once installed the crown and scribes are put on then any caulking if needed is done. After the installation they are ready for the final color coat by your painter.

Custom design cabinets

Custom cabinets from our local woodworking shop. We can work from a photo or your design ideas to build that one of a kind piece you are looking for. Made from solid materials and installed by a master carpenter.

Estimating & Installation: Custom cabinets can usually be estimated during a site visit. The location is measured onsite then the layout is calculated and the units are built in the shop then installed. They can be finished by your painter prior to installation or after depending on your preference.

Stock customizing & installation

Stock cabinets supplied by cabinet companies can also need some customizing. Refridgerator surrounds and panels, farmer sinks, warming drawers for example can use some custom work. They can be re-built for some interesting configurations on islands and special cabinet use. We also install the crown molding for those tricky installs at cathedral ceilings and set back cabinets.

Estimating & Installation: For these type of custom re-builds, adding crown and installations typically are on an hourly basis with an estimate of the time. We can also do entire kitchen installation with precise scribing and intragate layout situations, those are estimated either by time and material or by contract.
