Watch how technology meets craftsmanship at our Alabama factory, where we transform raw wood into our plywood kitchen cabinets. Whether it’s the side of a drawer box or a cabinet door, we hold every piece to the highest standard. From our hands to your home, we take pride in every Cabinets.com order.
