We were recently involved in a very special project that truly touched our hearts. We are honored to share the story with you, and we hope it will inspire you like it did us.
Think just because you can buy your cabinets online without going to a fancy showroom that you are skimping on quality and custom options? Well, this could not be further from the truth!

Purchasing new cabinets, whether for a kitchen or bathroom is a large investment and there are a few key characteristics to look for to ensure you are getting the best product for your money. The areas to check are the actual cabinet construction, the cabinet components, and the cabinet finishing process.
At the beginning of most kitchen and bath remodels, homeowners ask themselves this question… should I replace my cabinets or just reface them? It is usually a budget factor with the perception that replacing cabinets entirely is much more expensive than just refacing them.
Painted cabinets are extremely popular these days and there are many choices in colors and a few extra options available such as glazing, brushed, or rub through finishes to help make your cabinets unique.
When choosing a painted finish, it means that several coats of paint are applied to the cabinets to create a rich look. Maple and birch are typically used for this type of cabinet due to their uniform, smooth appearance. Painted cabinet doors can develop hairline cracks at the joints and are visible through the paint. It's due to the expansion and contraction of the wood. The cracks area normal occurrence and have no effect on the door's stability. We have a variety of painted finishes available, from bright white to olive green.
A "dovetail" drawer refers to the specific construction of the drawer; a dovetail joint is used to securely join the drawer side and the drawer front together. Dovetail drawers are secured together by a series of pins cut to extend from the end of one board interlock with a series of tails cut into the end of the other board. The pins and tails have a trapezoidal shape. Once glued, a wooden dovetail joint requires no mechanical fasteners.
