We utilize only select, kiln-dried, solid hardwoods and hardwood veneers for all components of our cabinetry.  Each raw piece of wood is hand selected, sorted, and inspected before it becomes part of your cabinet.

​State of the art equipment insures precision cuts and tight tolerances.  Mortise and tenon joined frames are pressure fitted, glued and stapled creating superior strength and durability.

​Our factory is climate controlled to maintain proper moisture levels for manufacturing wood products which reduces warping and splitting.
