Other Spaces

Your home is more than a kitchen and bath; so are we.

As a custom cabinet shop we can help you with any of your custom cabinet needs. This includes bars, mud rooms, entertainment walls, built-ins, furniture, add-ons, and storage solutions.

We specialize in custom stain matching for all kinds of projects.  Rest assured, it will look as new or old as you want it to.

Here is a sampling of what we’ve done.



Customer satisfaction is a priority for The Cabinet Maker, LLC. Rather than tell you how well we meet that goal, we’ll let our customers tell you themselves.


One of our clients stopped by and we met in our conference room. He immediately noticed the table you made for our large screen monitor and he was impressed beyond words. He was wondering where we bought it and I told him that it was custom designed by you for us. Don't be surprised if he calls you. I did give him your card. He asked about some of your work and I told him about the work you did on our cabinets at home also. I still am amazed on how you were able to match the woodwork on our cabinets. It just looks great.

I know I have thanked you before but this client brought to my attention again how pleased we are with the work you did for us. I appreciate your creativity but equally important, the quality of work you have done. I just needed to share the comments by our client. Please be assured you will hear from me again when I need some woodwork done. Thanks again John.

When United Way decided a customized movable wall was needed to separate staff space from public space, we presented the opportunity to various vendors. We selected the Cabinet Maker because they had the best design and for their willingness to provide some services pro bono in support of our nonprofit mission.

The wall, which features a large scale United Way logo, brands the interior space and functions as a welcome to all that enter our building. It enhances the ambience of our workspace with clean lines and a professional feel.

We appreciated the good advice on the finish materials and we are very satisfied with the quality of the final product. I would recommend them to anyone.

We contracted with The Cabinet Maker, LLC for various projects for the Milwaukee Art Museum. In addition to custom cabinets, they provided design expertise and input, working alongside our internal staff and other contractors.

The projects were managed directly by owner, John Phillips, enabling clear communication and timely completion. We also value the flexibility of a custom shop to adapt to the one-of-a kind needs that our projects present. Working with a local business is a huge plus for us, and greatly contributed to cutting through the red tape.

After purchasing my home, one of the first things I wanted to do was to remodel my basement into a rec room. I spent many hours in my basement trying to decide on a floor plan. I knew I wanted my rec room to include a bar that would be the focal point of the room.

After shopping around to find that "perfect bar" I met John Phillips who crafted my "PERFECT BAR". I was very satisfied with his personalized attention and excellent workmanship.

Remodeling our basement into a family living area meant some major decisions had to be made. The gas meter was relocated outside, but the water meter, located right in the center of our basement wall, was a different story. We hired The Cabinet Maker to come up with some ideas to somehow disguise it. After listening to our needs, he designed a cabinet that was a “perfect fit.” He wanted to make sure that it didn’t look like it was ‘hiding’ anything and would give us the usability we required. His work has brought WOWs from our neighbors, family and friends. John’s talent, workmanship and extremely high standards exceeded our expectations. The quality of his design and his attention to detail are remarkable. We would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone needing cabinetry.

When I added a bar for my basement improvement project, a friend recommended The Cabinet Maker. After seeing one of John’s completed bar projects, I knew he could design a great bar for my space and needs. His pays close attention to the details and does exceptional work. My custom bar is the perfect gathering place for family and friends, especially during football season.

The Cabinet Maker did a great job of turning our ideas for a wet bar in our basement into reality. John recommended we use the Express Cabinets because of the short time frame we had for getting our project completed. There were a lot of options to choose from, but John’s expertise helped us in choosing the right style and finish to make the wet bar tie into the rest of our basement. The cabinets turned out great and we have received nothing but great compliments on them. There are a lot of options out there for buying cabinets, but I would highly recommend the Cabinet Maker for his consultative approach to his customers and an honest opinion.”
