Meet the man behind the details.


John Phillips, CR is the owner of The Cabinet Maker, LLC. John’s interest in woodworking began in his father’s workshop as a child.  Over the years his interest continued to grow and the size of the projects grew beyond a hobby.  In 2005 he closed his mortgage company and in January of 2006, The Cabinet Maker, LLC officially was in business.

To ensure that his hobby could translate into quality, professional-level workmanship, he made education and market research a priority. Continuing education and product research are currently still regular activities.

In addition to the Lead-Safe Company designation held by The Cabinet Maker, LLC, John personally holds the Lead-Safe Renovator credential.  Through membership in The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA), he works with other local and regional cabinet shops, sharing ideas and best practices.  As an active member in The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI)-Milwaukee Chapter, he maintains professional contacts in all areas of the industry, ensuring access to other contractors trade partners who share his commitment to customer satisfaction.
