Early in 2002, we decided to expand the products and services we offer to our customers to include custom cabinetry. We believe this to be a natural extension of the expertise developed by the master craftsmen at Eldred Wheeler over the past thirty two years, and something that a good number of our customers have requested in the past. It would seem that an understanding of the components of fine cabinetmaking makes it difficult to accept less, especially in the kitchen where so much of our daily activity is centered. Large or small each cabinetry job we undertake receives the ultimate care and attention to detail; cabinetry that is as functional and efficient as it is beautiful. Our craftsmen make sure your cabinetry meets the demands of contemporary life while reflecting the aesthetics and values of the period that inspired it.
|The goal of our cabinetry venture is to offer the same traditional materials and construction methods as we use when handcrafting our 18th century reproduction furniture. The wide Cherry and tiger maple boards, mortise and tenon joinery and dove-tailed drawers are important elements of our fine cabinetry, and essential in conveying the warmth and purity of design inherent in colonial American craftsmanship. In addition to this we offer various options including hand carved shell and fan patterns, bracket or ogee feet, fluted columns and inlay or hand painted designs.
An Eldred Wheeler Kitchen is an investment in lasting value. Because we sell our cabinetry direct to our customers our kitchens are affordable and built with superior materials and craftsmanship. Should you wish to carry the look into other areas of your home, we have the ability to create coordinating wall units, vanities, built-in entertainment centers, bookcases, raised panel walls, wainscoting and more. We will be there every step of the way working within your requirements and schedule, to ensure that your cabinetry reflects all that you envision.
Eldred Wheeler’s highly-renowned finishes start with our unique water-based stain, combined with a light coating of natural shellac. A proprietary toner mix and kitchen cabinetry-grade lacquers are then applied. These are hand-rubbed and glazed to achieve the warmth and patina of antiques and provide the everyday protection needed in harsh environments of a kitchen or bath vanity.
Hardware includes the finest under-mount concealed full extension drawer slides. Hinges are concealed and adjustable. For visible hardware we recommend solid brass, but customer may select an alternative. Bracket feet enhance the cabinet design.
