Henige's Custom Woodworking
is a made-in-America Company that takes great pride in its furniture-quality cabinetry and its many other woodworking projects.

In this modest shop, we produce fine cabinetry, custom trim, and other specialties

Giving our products an individual look and quality that can only be achieved by craftsman, it's our policy and responsibility to give our customers our very best.

How American cabinets are built?

American Custom Cabinets Production Shop
Henige's Custom Woodworking Production Shop.

We order our hardwoods (for doors, drawer fronts, trims, drawer boxes) machined to our specifications, and after delivery, we begin to manufacture drawer fronts and doors. Once that process is complete, we move the completed parts to our finishing shop.

Next, we manufacture the drawer boxes and move those to the finish shop. We then order our plywood products and make trims and any components that must be assembled before finish.

Now that the major components are ready for finish and our Columbia Forest formaldehyde free plywood has been delivered, the finishing process begins. As this takes place, there are periods of down time (drying).

This is when the plywood processing begins. It is then cut to our production list and proceeds to the Felder edge bender, which applies real wood veneer to the exposed plywood edge. After that process, it is hand sanded (inspected) before moving to the finishing shop.

Finishing parts before assembling cabinets

As all parts are finished, once assembled, they are ready to move to the shipping area. The main benefit of this process is that an assembled cabinet box takes up a lot of space.

By assembling it all at once, we are able to move completed cabinets to the shipping area with no wasted space. This eliminates the need to store boxes until the drawers and doors are ready.

With this set-up, we (two people) are able to complete a typical 50-linear-foot kitchen in 6 weeks without outsourcing any work, except installation.

Being a rather small shop requires some organization as far as delivery and storage of materials and ongoing processes in the shop.

Important part of our success is our vendors

Whenever possible, we buy our lumber and plywood from a trusted, local source; this way we know exactly what to expect and are rarely disappointed. The same goes with our finish supplier. In a small operation, it is doubly important that mistakes and surprises are eliminated.

Our American cabinets are designed, constructed and made as high end, furniture-quality cabinetry, and 100% build in USA.
We have set a new standard level for quality control and precision.

Custom Cabinetry Design System, it is unique and suitable for big manufacturing and hobbyists alike.
We spent many years of combining experience to create the System we are proud of and would like to share with you.
