If you want the kind of unique fully custom cabinetry that needs to be locally made in a small custom woodworking shop, you are in luck, because we offer that. Our own shop – Vintage Custom Cabinetry – features very experienced fulltime cabinet makers who can handle your diverse requests and respond with top quality results. This applies to anything from a single custom bracket or shelf to an entire house full of coordinated cabinetry and trim details; go ahead and throw us a curve!
One of the great things about having our own “in house” custom shop is that you can also mix and match, so you might be able to take advantage of the time schedule and production advantages of one of the custom manufacturers we work with, but you can also incorporate some unique details from our own shop – whether they match the rest of your project or are designed to complement. When you browse through our showroom (or our online gallery), you will see many examples of special custom details that our shop has made and finished to blend seamlessly with other cabinetry that is from one of our custom manufacturers. These details blend so well you might need help from us to point them out, however.
