What is Custom Cabinetry?

When it comes to cabinetry many people assume that "custom" means they are crafted at a local shop.

A custom larder was crafted to create the perfect baking center.

The word custom is defined as "made especially for individual customers; dealing in things so made, or doing work to order", so in other words "custom" means cabinetry is designed and built to suit a specific situation/space for a specific customer/client in a specific home or office.

With over 60 years of experience in manufacturing fine custom cabinetry, we understand the importance of providing products and services that deliver quality, value and reliability.  Hand-crafted quality, state-of-the-art machinery, precision joinery and the commitment to exceed our customers' expectations.  Dura Supreme expertly blends modern technology with time tested woodworking practices to create cabinetry with excellence.  Excellence in quality, craftsmanship and service.

Just in Time Manufacturing

At Dura Supreme we don't begin building your new cabinetry until an order is placed.  Every piece and component is manufactured just for your project.

It all starts with the raw materials.  At our rough mill, kiln dried lumber is processed into stile and rail stock, panel insert blanks and other solid wood cabinetry components.  By processing these materials in house, we gain greater control over the quality and supply of these important building materials.

In addition, at Dura Supreme we manufacture our own wood doors in house, which gives us complete control over the quality of the wood used and its moisture content.  This is another detail that sets Dura Supreme cabinetry apart from others.  Because we manufacture our own doors we are able to finish the center panels before the doors are even assembled.  When wood naturally expands and contracts with seasonal changes in humidity, there will never be raw wood exposed.  Most other cabinet manufacturers and local cabinet shops purchase their doors from another vendor and are unable to pre-finish their panels.

Materials, Quality and Construction

We only use the finest quality materials and construction methods available.  This makes a difference in the overall quality, performance, and value of our cabinetry.

Custom Flexibility

Many people assume that factory-built cabinetry cannot be customized to fit a specific space or unusual configuration.  That is simply not the case with Dura Supreme.  Our cabinets can be customized down to 1/16 of an inch in width, height and depth.

In addition to custom sizing, we can custom quote cabinetry in all sizes and configurations to meet your needs. For example, these cabinets above were customized to fit perfectly in an angled wall space of a home.

Durable Hand-Crafted Finishes

Dura Supreme's finish palette is expansive and fashion forward.  Our rich, hand-wiped stains and color saturated paints are beautiful on their own or enhanced with layers of glaze and hand-detailing to create an antiqued appearance.
