This once undervalued material has emerged in prominence With popular woods like Mahogany becoming ever more scarce, coincidentally as forests are being destroyed, the cost of such preferred materials has skyrocketed (you may question what the real cost is). Is it finally time to look to materials that are sustainable? Should we at last make a major push to be environmentally conscious? And if so, where do we start when it comes to the needs of wood for the construction and furniture industries? After all, preserving our forests is a priority, but what of the countless jobs at stake?You may not...

Even knobs have stories We tend to take certain hardware for granted, don’t we? The wheels on our chairs, the fixtures for our lights, the locks on our doors, the handles on our cabinets… we can’t be blamed for not giving them a second thought, they were always just there, serving a purpose.

But first, let’s explore the world of natural hardwoods…It’s becoming much more commonplace for homeowners to seek to offset the coldness of stainless steel and glass in their kitchen with the warmth of hardwood. It is crafted, joined and finished into the finest cabinets that...

When you are buying new kitchen cabinets you have to decide if you want custom/semi-custom cabinets, RTA cabinets, or pre-assembled cabinets from a big box store. There are reasons to go with any of these three options but RTA cabinets are the best choice. Custom and semi-custom cabinets are thought of as the high end cabinets. They tend to offer quality products with a lot of variety for a premium price. On the other end of the spectrum, the stock cabinets that you would buy from a big box store cost less to make each cabinet because they are pre-assembled...
