Thompson Woodcraft was started by an avid do-it-yourselfer (Gene Thompson) who has done every aspect of home construction & remodeling.

We have recently begun offering a new service to other do-it-yourselfers who have the desire and basic skills to produce high quality custom cabinetry, but may not have the necessary equipment, facilities or access to quality materials at reasonable cost in order to accomplish this.  By doing much of the assembly & installation yourself, considerable savings can be realized, without compromising quality.

We will work with you to what ever level of completion that you desire, from basic layout/design to completed custom cabinets ready to install.  Through the use of CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) machinery for machining components, we are able to produce high quality custom cabinet components that are ready to assemble.

The process of producing custom cabinets consists of many steps as follows,  Items highlighted with yellow are procedures that we would do.  Items highlighted with green would typically be done by us, but would not have to be.  The more of the following breakdown that you can do, the more you can save -- our pricing is based upon only what we do!
