We build our cabinets in the old world techniques. Not only do we build our own doors, but we build a true raised panel door. We still use dowels and glue for our cabinets. We don't take short cuts and screw our face frames and cabinets together. We could be faster using screws, but our customers would not get as good a product. Don't be fooled by the old line " it's just as good as dowels " because it's not. We not only dowel our face frames, but also our frameless cabinets as well as our drawer boxes.

We believe in building it right the first time. We now have the children of older customers coming to us because their parents still have the cabinets we built for them years earlier. Don't think that this level of craftsmanship is going to be expensive. We have a very low overhead so we can keep our prices competitive. If you are looking for a fancy showroom and other flashy items to raise the price of your cabinets, we are not for you, but if you are looking for a place with quality machinery and craftsmen who know how to use it, with a commitment to building a lasting quality cabinet, then, we are for you. Our shop has been in several magazines through out the years the most recent one, we were voted " Best Small Kitchen of the Year " by San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles, June 2009. We have been around since 1961 and we plan on being here a lot longer.
