The Cabinet Shop

We pride ourselves on our reputation for creating some of the finest custom cabinetry in the Bay Area. Our full service custom cabinet shop has crafted just about every type of furniture imaginable. From simple platform beds and bookcases to highly detailed entertainment units and home offices, to intricate kitchens and master baths. Working with a broad range of wood types and material choices, our master craftsmen hand-select each piece of wood and then, using traditional tools and techniques, transform that wood into unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.

From individual wood selection to custom finishing techniques, every cabinet produced in the RNW cabinet shop acquires not only the look of a precious heirloom, but the value, too. Most importantly, every piece of cabinetry that leaves the RNW cabinet shop leaves with the expectation that both its beauty and quality will pass the test of time and be worthy of being handed down from generation to generation.

The process always begins the same way: A layout for the item to be built is created, a cut-list is prepared, materials are ordered, the wood is cut on a table saw and then the piece and all of its intricate detailing is crafted and assembled on the bench.

Organic architecture seeks superior sense of use and a finer sense of comfort, expressed in organic simplicity.

Modern architecture does not mean the use of immature new materials; the main thing is to refine materials in a more human direction.
