LJ Cabinetry is the real deal when it comes to "hand crafted" woodwork.
We manufacture all our projects from raw hand picked lumber, building all our own doors, drawers, hardwood moldings & casements (not farmed out to 3rd parties).This gives us the ability to for example, to make all the top drawers from the same piece of wood, arranged in sequential direction. The same with Raised panel centers. Upper cabinet panels end match with the lower ones. This is what gives a kitchen, library, etc. a uniform seamless custom look.
Only shop in the valley that finishes our projects with our unique finishing system of non toxic, finishes. No gas off like toxic varnish, polyurethane & lacquers. Finish is used for recoating gym floors, or sealing concrete, so finish is tough, refishible, maximum water & moisture repellentcy

Walnut galley kitchen
This walnut galley kitchen job was given to me by a wonderful woman who is one of those people that make’s cabinet building really worthwhile. We worked well together on a large previous project. She was the final approval on a wall by wall interior woodwork designs I drew with for her daughter’s home.
Jay asked me, “ after your done with my daughter’s job, would you build a kitchen for me, I’m in no hurry”? “Of coarse I would.” I looked forward to designing her something very special. Jay’s only real instruction was, “ I would like this side to look like antique period furniture, and this other side to look more like fine cabinetry. She had me pick the wood & the style.
My dad called me one morning and proclaimed, “The big Walnut nearest the bridge fell into the canal, come & fish it out.” So I did, had it rough slabbed, dried it out in the shop for 6 months, and used part on Jay’s kitchen. The tree was a awesome South American Walnut with extreme fiddle back & depth of grain. You know the kind of grain that look’s 3 “ deep.
It is truly a pleasure to work with considerate & kindhearted clients.
Thanks's Jay, John
